About Hailey

Hi there! My name is Hailey, I'm 22 years old and I recently graduated from UC Berkeley (#1 public university in the world). After graduation I obtained a job through Denver Public Schools working for the Blueprint Fellowship program, which is geared towards raising the mathematics grades of students attending DPS. Therefore, I work a 9-5 job, but I'm looking to supplement the income that my position at DPS does not provide (no shock that teaching never pays enough, right?)

Although my BA is in Sociology, my emphasis in teaching is math. I have consistently tutored math since I was 17, and have worked for:

- Private tutoring companies (Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trig, Pre-Calculus)
- the Oakland Unified School District (Algebra, Algebra 2, Trig, Pre-Calculus)
- and for UC Berkeley (college math, music theory, sociology, and writing)

These vastly different work environments have exposed me to students from all walks of life. I have worked with both privileged and under-privileged students, as well as students with academic giftedness and students with learning disabilities. I pride myself on my ability to connect with students from drastically different backgrounds, as well as improve their grades.

In addition to my passion for math, I also love music and writing. I received a Certificate of Merit for piano at the age of 16, and have tutored music theory at both the high school and college level. My studies with sociology have also honed my writing abilities, and I have tutored writing at both the high school and college level, as well.

While I can help your son or daughter in any one, two, or all areas I've listed above, I can also work with them as a mentor - preparing them to be college ready. I myself was the first of my family to attend a 4-year university; meaning I was forced to navigate the complex and overwhelming world of college preparation by myself. While this made my high school years stressful and daunting, my self-determination and self-dependence allowed me to obtain a deeper understanding of the college preparation process. Thus, I believe my experience, as well as my passion for learning and belief in equal opportunity, make me a compassionate and motivating mentor.

I hope this brief summary has given you an idea of who I am, and if you have any questions I would be more than happy to talk.

Best,
Hailey
