I am motivated by the ability to see others understand aspects in life better. This takes hard work and dedication in order to ensure success on both ends. I have a strong passion for incorporating sign language in theatre, which is evident through my work as an Assistant Director for a RIT/NTID performance and ASL translation team member for my former church's high school play. I also truly enjoyed the positive impacts I made on students while teaching 2 semesters of pre-calculus/calculus recitation sections and tutoring mathematics online for over 2 years. With my theatrical background and instructional experiences, I believe I have what it takes to ensure students triumphs in their learning process.

I can be contacted for effective tutoring in a wide variety of areas, including algebra 1, algebra 2, biology, calculus, English, history, logic, Microsoft Excel, probability, theatre, and writing. My breadth allows me to assist students who experience communication difficulties find a consolidated tutor with ASL skills. My style is to utilize stimulating and sometimes challenging methods. I like to help students through those problems in order to better master concepts. Upon request, progress reports can be generated to measure amounts of success in receiving tutoring goals.

The primary goal is to ensure the student succeeds. Patience may be needed in the tutoring process to measure satisfaction. I am open to feedback, so please feel free to indicate when a certain method/approach may not work for you. Each student has unique needs and I can adjust accordingly. If fruitful attempts have been made and a clear statement is made that satisfaction is still not achieved, you will not be billed for that session.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve great success in your studies!

Biostatistics

I was originally a Bioinformatics major for a few years before I transferred to Applied Mathematics and Statistics. I have training in both Biological Sciences and Statistics. I also participated in a statistical genetic research internship where I had a paper published in collaboration with other statisticians.

Discrete Math

With an MS Degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, I have aced a wide variety of courses related to graph theory, discrete mathematics, and combinatorics in college. I believe I can assist students in grasping a better understanding of these concepts.

Hard Of Hearing

As an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing and graduated in the top 3% of a hearing school, I can truly help improve the education of those with my physical condition.

Linear Algebra

I have taken Matrix Algebra and Applied Algebra with an A in each, along with a B+ in Graduate Linear Algebra. I believe that I can help students succeed with their classes in linear and matrix algebra.

Logic

Among the favorite topics in high school algebra/geometry for a tutor with an MS degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, I can help mathematical students with tautologies and logic laws/proofs.

Microsoft Windows

I have been approved for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I also have years of experience utilizing the Microsoft Windows environment and can help individuals who are new to this.

Regents

I have taken a wide variety of Regents examinations and have obtained at least a 92 on all examinations taken in high school. I believe I can assist in reducing anxiety for those about to take these examinations.

SAS

I have obtained an MS in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. In my graduate studies, I have further developed my skills in SAS software. I am able to do a wide variety of programming skills including extensive macros and development of other documents. I will be able to assist in training individuals who are hoping to pick up knowledge of SAS software.

Sign Language

I have taken five years of one-on-one instruction in American Sign Language and have also highly witnessed sign language interpreting as an individual who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. In addition, I have some practical experience working with translating songs into sign language. I believe I can provide great help to those who desire exposure to the language.

Study Skills

It takes a great amount of dedication and strong study skills to become successful. Studying takes focus which can be difficult for some individuals. Testing can lead to anxiety for those with poor study skills. With my high cumulative GPA, over 3.5 for both BS and MS degrees, I believe I can teach the amount of skills and knowledge vital for success.

Theatre

In high school, I was active in 7 out of 8 major productions. I had a signing role as an actor, roles as an extra, dancing roles, lighting and sound crew, theatrical filming, and stage crew experiences. I also signed a song along with chorus for my Senior Variety show. In college, I was then Assistant to the Director for one play and Assistant Director for a performance. I was recently involved as a technical member of the ASL translation team for a performance put on by my place of worship. If you are seeking theater development and advice, ASL translation for the stage, or just someone to help out with a performance, I can provide assistance.
