I am currently an undergraduate student at SUNY New Paltz in my junior year working towards a B.A. in Secondary Education with a focus in Mathematics. I have taken several upper level math courses that include: Calculus 1-3, Introduction to Proofs, Axiomatic Geometry, Precalculus, Algebra 1-2, Trigonometry, Geometry, etc. I developed an affinity for math when taking Calculus in High School. My teacher really inspired me and made me realize that math did not have to be as dry and boring as it is often perceived to be.
My education courses in college have made me aware of and interested in many different styles of learning and I am interested in developing my own teaching style that revolves around activities rather than the traditional lecture homework style. My interest is in teaching the concepts rather than strictly the material. I believe that learning comes most naturally when you're having fun, and my goal is to make math fun learning experience. This is certainly not to say that I won't assist in understanding homework assignments, but I feel that a broader understanding can be developed by branching off and covering the material from different perspectives of thought.
I have experience tutoring high school and college students and through the military where I have successfully taught electronics and ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) preparation (where a 70% or higher in electronics and mathematics was needed to qualify for the chosen career field). Personally, I scored in the 90th percentile in every subject of the ASVAB, and I scored top of the class in every military course I have taken including receiving Honor Graduate in Basic Training.
