**Math Teaching**

**Mathematics is the music of reason***(Sylvester)*→*Let us create our own music*I started tutoring neighbor's and family friends' kids in Math at very early age (around 11). It was fun. I then learned the French Mathematics' curriculum inside out. I learned a new approach on problem solving when I was training to the Olympiad of Mathematics. I took my higher level of Math education to Germany, where I learned another, very different didactic approach to Math learning, in original German.

Easily adaptable, I could transform my Math knowledge and the lesson plans to the required French thematic to pass the French National Exam (CAPES) for Math teacher licence in France. The national success rate of CAPE is low, since it is more a contest than a real exam. Even lesson plans and didactic of teaching are different, but Math are universal.

I arrived with a decade of experience of Math teaching to North Carolina, where I restarted my carrier as a Math teacher and learned a third alternative way to teach Math. I gained my Master's degree in the Arts of Teaching, Professional Licensure and a honor degree of the edTPA along the way from North Carolina State University in Raleigh. I was thrilled to teach Math in my third language English.

Recently in the last two years I have immersed not just in the American public school Common Core curriculum but in Russian Math teaching methods - challenging gifted young students, I practiced it as a volunteer Math teacher every Saturday organized by the UNC Chapel Hill Math Department.
