I worked for eleven years at Munster High School, as an instructional assistant, tutoring and teaching math and other subjects, primarily to students with learning disabilities and/or emotional disabilities. I am very good at finding ways to reach students and help them understand. I recently graduated from Purdue University Calumet with my Bachelor's in mathematics with an emphasis in physics.

Being a "seasoned" college student, I have taken many classes (engineering, programming, chemistry, philosophy) and also have valuable life experience. I have been honored to be a mentor to many students over the years. I believe that everyone can be a success and that the only time you fail is when you quit. I enjoy opening students' minds to the idea that math is cool and conquerable!

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.
