I am currently going to school to be a math teacher. I am working on the side tutoring some children that are in the middle school-high school level and work with a few college students. I would love to end up teaching high school one day. I got into math because I believe that the education system in Illinois needs to be fixed and am amazed on how some people don't know simple math. I am using my math abilities to help the general population and slowly start to improve our illiteracy. I promise you that I will teach you what you need to learn, and I try to make math fun and relate it in easier terms so people can understand. Math is not hard and it can be fun. Together, I can help make you as smart as Einstein.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Linear Algebra

I have taken a course at Northern Illinois University that spent the entire semester dealing with linear algebra. I got an A in the course and felt as confident with the material as I do with calculus. I feel that I will be able to help students in this area that shall be taking the class and students that are taking any prerequisites to the class. During the semester, I was a part of a study group that consisted of four people. By the end of the semester, I was tutoring each of them to prepare them for the final.
