I’ve been working in restaurants for some time now and aspire to own my own restaurant in the next few years. However, I’ve missed the feeling of helping someone better themselves and can’t wait to get back to it! At Auburn University I have taken and passed all but a handful of undergraduate math courses, and I only lack my final semester internship to earn my BA in math education. I have completed several field experiences in the Auburn area where I observed a 10th grade classroom, assisted in teaching another 10th grade classroom, and assisted in teaching two different 7th grade classrooms. I received Auburn University Dean's List honors for the Fall 2014 semester. I’ve also previously conducted a handful of private tutoring sessions consisting of helping a coworker reach a desirable score on the ASVAB for the US Navy, volunteering once a week for about three months at the Lee County Boys and Girls Club helping elementary and middle school students complete their homework, and helping my 21-year old brother and 16-year old sister with their homework. Going through grade school before the Common Core "era" and studying education in college during the Common Core "era", I believe myself to be competent in understanding what your child's teacher is looking for in any particular assignment. I thoroughly believe that everyone is capable of becoming proficient in math, and if anyone strongly dislikes math it’s primarily the fault of previous teachers. First and foremost, understanding “why” something works or “where” something is derived from is crucial to retaining important mathematical concepts. My approach is focused around this idea as I ask critical thinking questions that yield more than just a yes or no response from the student; they will also be asked to explain they’re reasoning when solving problems as if they were teaching the concept to me, and often times they will be asked to solve a problem in two or more ways. It is also a priority of mine to leave plenty of time for the student to ask additional questions and express their own concerns with areas that need more practice. Though most of my experience is with secondary-level students, I am confident in my ability to work with elementary students as well. I look forward to showing your son or daughter that math can make sense and can be fun!
