I recently graduated with my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver. I did very well in math classes throughout high school and college, as well as on the math sections of the SAT, SAT II and GRE exams. I feel confident in my ability to tutor all areas of math in high school below Calculus, including Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Statistics, as well as helping students prepare for the SAT, ACT, and GRE exams. I grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and have been tutoring since high school. I began my education at University of Pennsylvania in the engineering school before ultimately deciding that I wanted to pursue a career in Psychology. Now, tutoring math provides a perfect outlet to both engage with adolescents and young adults in a meaningful way while continuing to have an outlet for math and science in my life. Math has always been a favorite subject of mine as it has always made sense to me. I enjoy solving problems and the vast array of opportunities to apply the principles of math to real-life situations. I love sharing my knowledge and passion for math with students, as well as assisting them in learning how to work through challenging problems. Teaching math is fun because there is almost always a rule or logical explanation that can help students figure out where they are getting stuck and how to move forward. I have a fairly laid back personality, and I work with students at a pace that works for them, constantly assessing their strengths and growth areas, and what they are needing most as we work through problems, whether it is for a class or in preparation for a standardized test. I also taught English for one year in Chile, which was an unbelievable growing experience, both personally and professionally. I am fortunate to now call Denver home, as I love the outdoors and everything the mountains have to offer from skiing and snowboarding to mountain biking and white water rafting. In addition to math subjects, I can also tutor in Chemistry, Psychology, and first and second year Spanish. I also have extensive experience helping students prepare for standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT exams. My psychology background allows me to develop rapport quickly with students and support them in the most helpful ways, balancing the need to answer their questions with allowing them sufficient time to find the answers and learn the methods on their own. I look forward to working with you and making sure that math or other subjects do not stand in the way of conquering the next chapter of your life!
