Bio

I am an economist, moving onto my Ph.D. in Economics. I recently received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army and completed my M.S. in Applied Economics at the University of Alaska. I have over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience for ages 7 thru college level, including adult learners.

I am an economist, moving onto my Ph.D. in Economics. I recently received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army and completed my M.S. in Applied Economics at the University of Alaska. I have over 10 years of teaching and tutoring experience for ages 7 thru college level, including adult learners. Additionally, as a graduate student, I have experience teaching undergraduate college students and adult learners in the traditional classroom setting and one-on-one instruction. Additionally, I am experienced teaching younger learners with social and learning disabilities, such as autism and dyslexia. My academic experience has been both applied and theoretical and I have had opportunities to teach wonderful students that do not learn in the traditional way, using visual and auditory reinforcement, and outside of the box ways of thinking about problems, rather than getting lost in equations and being overwhelmed with facts.

My life is not all school and work, however. In college, I was an NCAA Division I track athlete, and I have been a musician for my entire life. I started playing music on my first instrument, the viola, 21+ years ago and also play violin and tenor saxophone. I enjoy getting outside and experience a full and well-rounded life, which has been bountiful as I have lived all over the United States, from NY to Alaska and many places in between.

I enjoy tutoring because I love education. For me, the greatest joy is passing on knowledge and empowerment to learners of all ages. I am passionate about helping others succeed and realize the immense value an education can have, at all levels. I started off teaching inner-city youth to help them see a bitter future for themselves and now, I want to use this platform to bring that to people in my community and across the country. I use flexible learning methods for students that do not do well with traditional instruction, or students who may have been away from school for a while, recognizing that not everyone learns the same way or at the same pace. My goal as an educator is to help people learn and achieve their goals, however high they may be!

I am an economist by trade and have received my B.A. in Economics, as well as my M.S. in Resource and Applied Economics. I am now starting my Ph.D. studies in Economics. During my Master's coursework, I completed an econometrics series including Econometrics and Advanced Econometrics, both at the graduate level. Additionally, I co-taught an undergraduate Statistics for Economics and Business course. I have used econometrics in the real world as a research fellow for the American Institute for Economic Research, as a graduate student for the analysis of my thesis projects, "Willingness to Pay for Reindeer Meat Attributes: A Niche Market Study in Interior Alaska," and I am currently working as a Research Assistant on a research grant at the University of Alaska that is conducting economic valuations of fire treatments where my primary duties are econometric analysis and data coding.
GRE,

GRE

I have recently gone through the GRE process myself in the past year, so I am very current on the exam's format and question types. I scored very well on the GRE, gaining admission to many well-ranked economics Ph.D. programs in the United States. As an economist, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing are extremely important skills that were necessary for me to excel. I have been helping to prepare students for standardized tests for many years now and have always had great success, especially in helping students review necessary mathematical concepts and improving their analytical writing skills. I have developed a very intuitive, visualized method for helping students with mathematical difficulties. My approach to teaching mathematics for the quantitative part of the GRE has been developed from thousands of hours tutoring and teaching mathematics to everyone from children as young as 6, to adults returning to college. I take pride in an individualized level of attention and customization for each student.

STATA,

STATA

I am an economist and Stata is my primary statistical analysis software package for my research and academic purposes. I was trained in Stata as part of my M.S. in Applied Economics program, where we had to use Stata for our graduate level Econometrics and Advanced Econometrics courses and submit our do files with code. Our grades depended on the proper answer, correct Stata tests being used, and working .do files. Additionally, I used Stata for my thesis' data analysis. Further, I was a research fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research where my primary duties were to do econometric analysis using Stata and to come up with automated processes in Stata that would allow millions of observations to be properly executed for a usable result.

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have over 15 years of experience working with children on mathematics skills at the elementary level. I have developed unique methods for conveying math to young learners in a way that makes sense and they can intuitively comprehend. I have had success with dozens of students, from typical learners to atypical learners with special educational needs. The foundation of experiences is based on recognizing that every student requires a unique approach and patience.
Vocabulary,

Vocabulary

The breadth of one's vocabulary can be linked to their knowledge of languages, their roots, and their literacy. I have been a lover of books and languages, having learned 4 in my lifetime, as well as studying Latin roots for the romance languages. I have learned, Spanish, French, and Korean, in addition to English, and am also an avid reader. The diversity of my linguistic knowledge has helped me learn how to break down words to their roots and extrapolate their meaning. In addition, I am also an avid reader and have been my whole life, which has also helped me learn to use contextual reading in order to identify unknown words. I have used these techniques myself on various standardized tests successfully, including the SAT, GRE, ASVAB, and DLPT. Additionally, I have trained others to do the same for their standardized testings, both in English and Korean.

ADHD,

ADHD

I have been living with ADHD (combined type) my entire life and was formally diagnosed as an adult. I have learned many methods to structure my life, learning and planning to harness my ADHD and turn it into an advantage, so much that I had a successful career in the military and am now a Ph.D. student and continuing to reach new heights. As I have gotten older, I have had a natural teaching connection with ADHD students and have a personal level of understanding what the ADHD mind needs to excel, especially with children. My personal experience, along with my experience teaching ADHD children everything from computer coding to reading has helped me develop as an effective instructor, learning to optimize the learning experience for ADD/ADHD students and realizing that ADD/ADHD students are all unique and have their own special strengths that can be utilized in the learning environment.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Working with autistic spectrum children has been a special experience because they often have a unique way of thinking about problem-solving that, once understood, can be used to help them actually comprehend learning more effectively than those not on the spectrum. I have experience teaching ASD children, primarily in mathematics related subjects, and helping them feel comfortable with their learning environment. I have taught children in middle school and high school and personally know that developing a unique trusting relationship with these students is absolutely paramount to their success. Therefore, my approach is one of patience and positive reinforcement, limiting the stress that is allowed in the learning environment, and tailoring the material to the way the student's brain is already used to processing information.
Dyslexia

Dyslexia

I have worked with many great students that have varying learning disabilities, including dyslexia. Often dyslexia is not an independent disability and there are other things also inhibiting reading and sight-comprehension development, which I have learned to approach on a case by case basis, as every student has different needs, severities, and strengths. While working with students with dyslexia I have developed a method of auditory reinforcement for the word and letter patterns they struggle with and breaking down words so they only have to focus on a little at a time. I have experience working with dyslexic children of all reading levels, from non-readers to those looking to improve their skills and enjoy the opportunity to help all overcome their perceived hurdles and turn those hurdles into advantages later on.

I went on to run for two years at the NCAA Division I level in college, specializing in the same events, My college career was cut short by a bilateral foot injury that took 2 years to heal. I spent 6 years as the director and head coach for a local summer track program and team in the upstate NY area and after college, I went on to be the team captain and coach for the U.S. Army Run Team at the Presidio of Monterey, CA. Post-injury, I have been successful at expanding my events into the distance realm, running the 10k/15k/half marathon range, but I still maintain proficiency and stay up to date on the developments of sprints training.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have tutored Algebra1 to multiple high school students, as well as middle school students to help them get ahead and have had great success. Additionally, as an economist I had had to go through many rigorous mathematics courses and teach college level mathematics and statistics, I use on a daily basis, keeping me current with current teaching methodologies and developments in the fields. I recognize that for many students this is the first exposure to any sort of more complicated math and that not everyone learns the same way. My methods include visual and auditory reinforcement, out of the box thinking, and simplifying concepts so students do not get lost in equations and variables.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 to multiple high school students, including those with learning and social disabilities and have had great success, being able to bring students from failing to pulling of A's and B's in the course. Additionally, as an economist I had had to go through many rigorous mathematics courses and teach college level mathematics and statistics, I use on a daily basis, keeping me current with current teaching methodologies and developments in the fields.
Calculus,

Calculus

As an economist, calculus fundamentals and theory is crucial to my research and progression. In addition to studying graduate level mathematics, I have studied calculus-based economic theorems and proofs, as well as taught calculus-based courses in economics. My experience includes Calculus I, II, and III/Multivariate Calculus, with some exposure to and application of Differential Equations, as well. I have had great success teaching calculus, as well as applied calculus concepts to students in a classroom setting, as well as one on one tutoring.
GED,

GED

To date, I have earned a high school diploma, A.A.S., Bachelor's in Economics, and Master's of Science in Resource and Applied Economics. I am currently a Doctoral Academy Fellow working on my Ph.D. in Economics. In addition, I have been working with high school level material in a teaching capacity for over ten years, tutoring teenagers, young adults, and older adults alike in core subjects such as mathematics, English, reading, grammar, writing, history, social sciences, and physical sciences. Additionally, I have worked as an educator at the university level, assisting with economics and statistics based courses and have experience providing academic mentorship to those pursuing college-level degrees as well as those returning to take their GED. I thoroughly enjoy helping adult learners go back to complete their high school equivalency and college education and recognize the challenges that come with being an adult learner. I employ a multi-sensory practical application approach where everything for the adult learner is related or contextually relevant to their lives. This results in a stronger intuitive understanding of material and increased confidence.
Macroeconomics,

I am an economist by trade and have received my B.A. in Economics, as well as my M.S. in Resource and Applied Economics. I am now starting my Ph.D. studies in Economics. During my Master's coursework, I completed an econometrics series including Econometrics and Advanced Econometrics, both at the graduate level. Additionally, I co-taught an undergraduate Statistics for Economics and Business course. I have used econometrics in the real world as a research fellow for the American Institute for Economic Research, as a graduate student for the analysis of my thesis projects, "Willingness to Pay for Reindeer Meat Attributes: A Niche Market Study in Interior Alaska," and I am currently working as a Research Assistant on a research grant at the University of Alaska that is conducting economic valuations of fire treatments where my primary duties are econometric analysis and data coding.

Test Preparation

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I have been helping students prepare for standardized testing for over a decade and have a wealth of standardized testing experience, myself. I am not a naturally gifted test taker, but I am persistent and have developed many techniques to help mitigate any test taking deficiencies that I know teach students with great success. For the ACT, I have tutored many students of varying skill levels and high school ages who are preparing to test and have always observed an increase in confidence, efficiency, and performance. The math section can be tricky for many students, so I use a combined method to reinforce fundamental math concepts that will be required for a successful test performance. As an economist, I have become very comfortable with all levels of mathematics and it has helped me with teaching math from as young as the 1st grade level, all the way through the college level.
ASVAB,

ASVAB

ASVAB Qualifications I am a U.S. Army Veteran and scored well enough when I took the ASVAB to qualify for every MOS in the Army. Additionally, I am well versed in the subject matter for the ASVAB and have tutored other future soldiers/marines/sailors/airmen to get successful scored on their ASVAB as well and qualify for the military job that they are looking for. I understand that many ASVAB takers may have had a time gap in their education, so I make sure to adapt my teaching emphasis to the individual student's learning strengths and spend time working on the subjects that the student feels less confident in, so they can build a solid foundation a little at a time.
College Counseling,

College Counseling

I have completed four higher education degrees and am starting on my fifth. To date, I have completed my A.A.S., B.A, M.S., and a Linguistic Certificate from the U.S. Government. Currently, I am starting work on my Ph.D. I have gone through the college process many times, after coming from a neighborhood where many people did not go to college, being a first-generation college student, and finding ways to fund myself. Additionally, I have served a mentor for my students, whom I privately tutor. I have helped them set up their college lists, including how to identify reach, match, and safety schools, how to find funding for schooling, and picking prospective majors.

GRE,

GRE

I have recently gone through the GRE process myself in the past year, so I am very current on the exam's format and question types. I scored very well on the GRE, gaining admission to many well-ranked economics Ph.D. programs in the United States. As an economist, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing are extremely important skills that were necessary for me to excel. I have been helping to prepare students for standardized tests for many years now and have always had great success, especially in helping students review necessary mathematical concepts and improving their analytical writing skills. I have developed a very intuitive, visualized method for helping students with mathematical difficulties. My approach to teaching mathematics for the quantitative part of the GRE has been developed from thousands of hours tutoring and teaching mathematics to everyone from children as young as 6, to adults returning to college. I take pride in an individualized level of attention and customization for each student.
