# Wilson N - Math Tutor In Saint George SC - Local or Online

423 N Parler Ave Saint George, SC 29477 USA. March 22, 2019 To Whom It May Concern: I am a high/secondary school mathematics teacher within the Dorchester District Four School System (DD4). Currently, I work at Woodland High School where I teach upper level mathematics courses that will prepare my students to successfully pass the ACT and SAT. I have passed all the required PRAXIS tests and have a valid teaching license with ‘Gifted and Talented’ endorsement from State Department of Education, South Carolina. During my 28 years in the educational arena, including 13 years in the USA and 10 years in Rep. of Maldives IGCSE (Cambridge Syllabus), I have garnered positive feedback from my students, parents, and administrators. My extensive experience in United States and several other countries has strengthened my understanding and expertise in my field. More importantly, it has perfected my ability to discern my students’ academic challenges so that I can better reach their needs. Professionally, my ultimate goal is to teach my students to be abstract thinkers. My mathematical lessons and activities compel them to think outside of the box because I do not give my students the answers to basic or complex problems. Instead, I show them how to break down the mathematical concepts in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the content matter, which inculcates their critical and creative thinking skills. At the culmination of my course, all of my students will have been given the opportunity to generate their own ideas, analyze questions and provide information to support findings, substitute ways and means, elaborate on steps, and evaluate and synthesize statements. Creating critical thinkers is the key to our students becoming productive citizens; therefore, my students are given ample experiences to engage in dialogue with their peers and myself in order to evaluate their personal knowledge while gaining knowledge from their counterparts. Throughout my teaching career, I have not only enhanced my students understanding of math, but I have also taught them the importance of working hard by stressing the necessity of attending college or obtaining a trade. When this happens, the world is theirs. They are able to contribute locally, nationally, and globally. These conversations often motivate my students to maximize their potential in and outside of the classroom. The concept of math is the same throughout the world; yet, I have found engaging and interactive methods to employ the standards, teach life skills, and meet the ever-changing needs of my students. I truly enjoy my career, and I will continue to execute my duties to the best of my abilities. Teaching in the United States greatly influenced my understanding and delivery of mathematics. Respectfully yours, Mr. Wilson Nesamony
