I am a third year PhD student in the math department at UIC. I graduated from Pomona College in 2007 with a BA in math, and worked as a litigation consultant for several years before returning to school to pursue my passion: theoretical mathematics. I have been tutoring since before I started college in 2003, and am now employed as a teaching assistant and tutor at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
In college I tutored several high school students in all academic subjects through Upward Bound, a program designed for low-income students who have a strong desire to go to college, and saw two of my students graduate at the top of their class of 500+ after 3 years of help. I have also tutored a number of middle school and high school math students, in subjects ranging from basic Algebra to AP Calculus. While at UIC I have gained experience tutoring college-level mathematics, from basic Calculus to Real Analysis and Abstract Algebra. I have also been a TA for Business Calculus and Calc I and II, and I am a lecturer for a basic Algebra course during the summers.
I decided to go back to graduate school so that I can become a math professor, and hopefully pass along my love of the subject. I look forward to helping you love math, too!
