I started teaching math in 1997 at the Long Beach Preparatory Academy and I have been teaching at Jordan High School since 2000. I have taught all levels of math from Pre-Algebra to Calculus.

A student once told me a quote that he heard from a college professor that "nothing is easy or difficult - you either know how to do it or you don't." I emphasize this to my students to help them see that every person can learn and use math. There is no difficult math class if you know how to do the math. Learning math just takes consistent effort to learn and to be confident with the small steps that can be put together to take the long trips. An effective way to learn anything is to practice a little every day. If you create a habit of practicing every day for an amount of time that is not a burden, then you will be able to improve. Remember that you need to practice by solving problems - not just reading your notes.
