About Yilliams

Hello! My name is Yilliams and I graduated from San Diego State University earning a B.A. in Mathematics. As an undergrad student I began to get myself involved in education, and decided to become a math tutor. Through the program Pathways from the College of Education at San Diego State University, I became an in class tutor for a Freshmen Integrated Math I class. My role as in in class tutor was to keep students focused and engaged on the subject. As well as to provide one to one or small group tutoring. This experience helped me see that my true passion was to help others through education. Later, as I finished my undergrad I got accepted to the Dual Language Program credential program as SDSU. As a student teacher I got the opportunity to create math lesson plans from scratch that went along to the established curriculum. Through teaching and lesson planning I learned how to tailor my lesson to accommodate to my student’s needs. Also, I was able to establish great relationships with my students based from what I learned as a tutor.

I have been tutoring for three years and teaching in a bilingual setting for a Freshmen Integrated Math I class for one year. As a tutor I had different age groups of student ranging from elementary to high school. Students ranging from learning how to read to, more mathematical complex concepts, and recently teaching Integrated Math I for one school year in a bilingual setting. Twice a week I would have tutoring sessions for my Integrated Math I students to help them solidify any misconceptions, or to prepare them for an upcoming test. Through keeping my classes mathematically challenging, based on their content level, my students were able to conceptualize mathematical topics essential for the next grade level.

My goal is to remove the stigma that mathematics is a difficult subject to understand, and that only certain students are good at it. I want my students to be able to conceptualize mathematics, instead of seeing math as simply procedural. Mathematics in fact can be procedural, but once the concept is truly understood, anyone can definitely do math!

Remember, it is ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them!
