Recently I have been in graduate school and/or teaching at Clark Atlanta University and the University of Florida. During this time I have tutored, TA-ed, and have been an instructor and adjunct lecturer. Most of my experience has been teaching mathematics to college students. However I have taught English as a second language, GED classes for all 4 of the subjects, ACT/SAT prep to students of all ages and backgrounds, in a variety of environments. I have tutored mathematics for the past 10+ years in some capacity.
Throughout middle and high school I competed in math competitions and was the highest and most awarded student for my grade level in my district. I also have attained extremely high scores on the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and the GRE, scoring above the 80th percentile in each section, each time I took them. I hold a Master of Science in Mathematics (2018) from the University of Florida.
I am currently concentrating on making educational materials for upper level undergraduate courses and lower level graduate courses.
My teaching philosophy is to expose the student to ideas and concepts, giving them the guidance, tools and strategies to successfully analyze and solve novel problems. This equips more advanced students better than just repeating the same task over and over, though at time that is necessary. This process can sometimes be slow but the results are worth it. I strive to develop conceptual thinking and interest in mathematics with the student, revealing the connections within mathematics and between math and other subjects. My end goal is for the student to truly understand the material so that they are comfortable with it, experience the creativity of mathematics, and can make use of the concepts in the manner that they are acquiring the tutoring services for.
I engage students in a way that allows them to witness the joy, beauty and fun of mathematics. Many times the difference between understanding a subject and not, is being exposed to the right material and questions at the right time, and/or
