# Max (8th grade, PSIA and TMSCA)

I have found Mr. Ramirez to be a really great teacher. He makes learning math very interesting, and explains the concepts so they are easy to remember. He is very helpful in the effectiveness of his teaching material, which lets me learn concepts thoroughly and efficiently. In 2015 and 2016, Mr. Ramirez helped me place 1st in District for Number Sense and top 10 in State. For the past 3 years, I have qualified for state in all 4 TMSCA tests. I have placed first several times in Calculator Application and have placed 7th at the TMSCA State meets in 2017 and 2018. I will be competing at TMSCA State again this month. Along with this, Mr. Ramirez has taught me some advanced math, such as complex logarithms, conic sections, and the unit circle. This has been very useful in my Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 classes. His lessons have also helped me earn a score of 680 on my math SAT (93rd percentile) in 7th grade.
