I have always loved math, and understood why others despise it. My father was a computer programmer, my mother a math teacher. They taught me well and inspired within me a love of learning. The oldest of four spanned over 7 years, I helped my siblings with their homework starting in elementary school. In high school, I coached my middle school's math team because my coach decided he needed more time with his family. I have graduated from UMBC with a B.S. in mathematics, and I plan on teaching at a high school level. I have tutored college students through the university for calculus and precalculus. I know the difference between doing work for a student and actually helping someone learn difficult material. I worked at Mathnasium of Ellicott City, Rockville, and Germantown for two years. I have thousands of hours of experience teaching math of all levels. I feel best when I see eyes light up with understanding, and I strive to make that happen every day.

ACT Math

Years of continuous mathematics education provide the general math background necessary to effectively help students understand how it all fits together. This, combined with experience as an instructor Mathnasium, allows me to effectively teach test taking techniques and provide support for math skills simultaneously.

Algebra 2

I have tutored many students at the learning center where I worked with Algebra 2. Some were during the year, some took the course over the summer. I had a long term substitute position in 2014 and 2015 teaching Honors Algebra 2 in Montgomery County, MD. I am very familiar with the material and students' difficulties with it.

Geometry

Upper level study of the subject at university afford me a deep understanding of geometry. Years of experience tutoring geometry, including and especially proofs and construction, have allowed me to hone my presentation of the subject and ability to help students appreciate and understand it. I love introducing geometry to students; its elegant complexity is mesmerizing.

SAT Math

Years of continuous mathematics education provide the general math background necessary to effectively help students understand how it all fits together. This, combined with experience as an instructor Mathnasium, allows me to effectively teach test taking techniques and provide support for math skills simultaneously.
