Before taking this course, students should be confident working with positive and negative numbers and solving multi-step equations. Math 8/Pre-Algebra/Algebra I is generally the prerequisite for Geometry. This class is set up to help the student achieve success in high school math and is a high school Geometry course.

Material will be presented through exploring concepts and discovering relationships between mathematical concepts. There will be examples, practice and exploration. Students will be given an example or exploration activity, then will work with the instructor to understand problems then they will solve problems on their own.
Homework will be assigned. Assessments will be used to track student progress. Please request a letter grade if required. Students should expect to spend 2 to 3 hours a week outside of class on homework.

I have a Masters of Education and am a licensed math and English teacher. **I have been teaching online for five years!** I love the exploration of math and plan to explore it in all of my classes.
My term long classes (broken into two terms affordability) will include plenty of exploration but will also be courses that will allow students to understand and practice concepts. As far as core classes go I teach middle school math (6th, 7th, and 8th/pre-algebra), Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus. I have taught these in a brick and mortar school in the USA and international schools in Thailand and China.
I have taught ages 11 to 18 in a traditional classroom.
Feel free to request classes. I teach both integrated math as well as algebra, geometry, trignometry and statistics. Also, creative writing for fiction and nonfiction and young adult dystopian English classes.
