I am a graduate of Southern Methodist University who received a dual B.S. degree in Management Science and Mathematics. I graduated 19th out of 456 students from my High School in 2005. In high school, I was a member of Mu Alpha Theta, a mathematics honor society, hence my focus being in mathematics tutoring. I was also a member of the Spanish Honor Society, National Honor Society, and Who's Who Among Students. Personally, I am involved in my church and work part time for State Farm Insurance. I've tutored friends, family and classmates in various subjects but most were math-based (i.e., geometry, algebra, precalculus, calculus, etc.).
My most recent tutoring experience was tutoring a 10th grader for her geometry STAAR exam. I myself am a visual, hands-on learner, especially in math; I truly believe that is the only EFFECTIVE way to grasp mathematical concepts, but, every student is different. It would be my job, as a tutor, to find THAT student's way of how he or she effectively learns and then present the concept(s) accordingly. I believe in establishing a comfort and confidence in a student's knowledge of the basics before progressing into higher level tasks. A motto I live by in my academic, professional, and personal lives is: BE CONFIDENT IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE! Once a foundation is laid, nothing can destroy it! I look forward to hearing from you, parents and students!
