I am Illinois certified middle school math teacher at Morgan Park Academy, a private school on the south side of Chicago. I love teaching young people not only the step by step processes of solving math problems, but also the concepts behind these processes. I'm passionate about what I do and live for those a-ha moments with my students. Seeing a student finally understand a difficult concept and develop confidence in their abilities is a thrill that I always look forward to.

I have taught 5th grade math for the last two years and have used all types of approaches to make learning math challenging, interactive, and fun. I have a calm, nurturing demeanor and I excel at relating the material to middle school aged kids.
