John D. ...I taught Algebra 2 a number of years at an international school. This is one of my favorite subjects to teach because it tends to be a "make or break" class for students to either love or hate math. I love applying reality to the mere methods of mathematics.

Jacqueline O. ...As a student in high school, I loved the sciences and social sciences (e.g. history, psychology, English), but I also took a keen interest in mathematics. Now, I'm in college and I'm taking a variety of courses because as Francis Bacon famously said "Knowledge is Power." And, one of my priorities is for you to realize that too. I love English and writing.

Roger M. ...When I teach math concepts such as Geometry, I try to make it more engaging for the student by connecting the math concepts to other subjects. Some students relate more to the language of math so I'll discuss the etymology of unique math terms. Math has a natural connection to history and science and Geometry especially connects well to the arts and architecture.

Christine O. ...I use a multi-sensory approach with emphasis on phonics to take the guesswork out of reading. Methods I use include Lindamood-Bell, Orton Gillingham, and "Brain Gym". Attitudes change quickly from "I can't" to "I CAN!" I have proofread professionally while I was employed by The Academy for Future Science from 2005-2013.
