"Hello, my name is Andy N. and I'm currently a certified High School math teacher. I've been teaching for 6 years and plan to continue doing so. I've taught Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 for regular students as well as Pre-AP/GT students. I have not yet taught Pre-Calculus but I am comfortable with that subject. I teach how to do math in a step-by-step and logical procedure. Once the student understands the solving process, I then use real-life scenarios and problems to show applications and relevance. This approach gets kids to really understand what they are doing and see the value in it. I also do homework help and test prep if needed.

I believe math is a very necessary subject in today's world. I know not everything we teach is used after high school, but the critical thinking, the problem solving, the step by step (following directions) process are all life skills you practice and refine. You could not perform a job if you couldn't do the three things I just listed above. In addition, there is basic financial/everyday math needed when shopping quotes, comparing prices, or even paying bills. When a student understands what they're doing for the first time, they brighten up their smiles with a truly spectacular ah-ha moment. I love seeing that joy in their eyes and it lets me know that they start liking math a little more at a time.

Aside from being an active high school math teacher, I have received multiple distinctions in my district for high student performance/achievement. My students' scores, on average, are always better than the district average.

Some advice I would give to students looking for math help would be to keep trying and never give up. A lot of students complain math is hard, but in reality everything is hard if you don't understand it. But once you do, it will seem easy and second nature. You learned to walk, but it was probably one of the hardest things to do when you were a baby. You probably failed (fell down) so many times, but you kept trying and eventually figured it out.
