I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, with a B.S. in Mathematics and M. Eng. in Systems Engineering. With over 10 years' experience tutoring and 5 years' teaching at the middle school, high school, and community college levels, I have learned that teaching is more than just delivery of information. I believe that educators must instill confidence in their students, for they will only be successful when they believe it is possible. I also believe that most students struggle with advanced concepts in mathematics, not because they are incapable of understanding, but because somewhere along the way, they missed some fundamental concepts, resulting in a flawed foundation. Without a strong foundation, students struggle to build upon previous knowledge, resulting in a lack of understanding and frustration. Taking the time to repair the foundation is always the first step towards not only addressing the challenge at hand, but preparing students to navigate the challenges yet to come.
