I am a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am a 4-8 Certified Math Teacher in the state of Texas, but I have relevant teaching and tutoring experience in early childhood and high school math subjects as well. My certification program, UTeach, is heralded as an excellent math and science educator program that focuses on making real-world connections to curriculum. Through this program I had experience teaching fifth, eighth, tenth, and twelfth grades before graduation. I also have a plethora of experience writing lesson plans that are engaging, lab-based, and elaborate on the real-world. I am very proficient in inquiry-based teaching; I ask a series of questions that help students come to their own conclusions.
I did my student teaching in Richardson ISD in both Pre-AP Algebra 1 and integrated 8th grade math. The latter class was about half special ed students. I am certainly comfortable and experienced teaching students of all backgrounds, proficiency levels, and ability groups.
Since graduating, I have worked at two different tutoring companies. I am mostly comfortable teaching math, but I do have some experience teaching beginning reading, biology, chemistry, study skills, and writing. My current job is more curriculum-structured, but I also help students with their high school math coursework if they need extra help. My students range from four years old to seventeen, so I can assist from basic math to calculus. I am very skilled at creating problems on a whim, and I have also created diagnostic tests at this center. I also assist in grading, recording grades, preparing student folders before class, and other administrative tasks.
As far as other aspects of my life go, I love to cook and create new recipes in my free time. I love to create dishes from all over the world using fresh, all-natural ingredients; I am a food enthusiast in addition to math. I am also an aspiring stand-up comedian, so I attend open mic nights when I can. Because of this, I am genuinely out-going, positive, and friendly. And yes, that is a LEGO bow tie in my picture.
