Hello potential students! I am an Emory University alum with an extreme desire to help students to learn. I love getting to know students and developing a relationship of trust and understanding. I graduated with a double major in Economics and French studies, which gives me a wide background and understanding about the learning experience.

Although I am new to WyzAnt, while in college I spent countless hours tutoring students varying from the age of 4-18. In addition, I had experience in high school and worked as a volunteer tutor in math for several summers.

With younger students, I have tutored subjects varying from math to language arts. With middle and high school students, I focused a great deal on math and helping them overcome any complexities.

I adopt a hands on approach to teaching. I teach by focusing on understanding the material rather than memorizing it. I use examples and real-world applications, show proper problem solving skills by guiding a student through examples and common questions, and give many types of practice problems for the student to be fully comfortable with a subject. I walk students through each problem, until my students can fully understand the steps of the process on their own. I prefer one-on-one tutoring and enjoy engaging my students with fun and challenging math problems. I like to apply math to real world situations to allow my students to fully understand the relevance and necessity of knowing and using math in their everyday lives.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with a variety of people and subjects. Best wishes and success to you!
