Bio

Hello! I am a (somewhat recent) graduate from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Mathematics currently working in the financial sector. While in my undergraduate, I became aware that office hours were a necessity with certain subject areas. You see, while class was sufficient to cover the required teaching material, there was simply enough time to ensure that every student was retaining the information the way they should.

Hello! I am a (somewhat recent) graduate from the University of Georgia with a B.S. in Mathematics currently working in the financial sector. While in my undergraduate, I became aware that office hours were a necessity with certain subject areas. You see, while class was sufficient to cover the required teaching material, there was simply enough time to ensure that every student was retaining the information the way they should. Much in the same fashion, I believe that having the extra time to go over material is pertinent to retaining information. I always try to present the material in a way that perhaps is different than in the classroom, often times tying in the subject matter to real world applications. I always ensure that there is ample time to work through problems together, reviewing steps along the way. So often Math is a subject area that has a bad association, my goal is to make the learning experience as pleasant as possible through a hands on approach.

I have been tutoring in and around the Athens area since August 2010 for a wide range of students. I have since moved to Macon where I continue to provide the same level of excellence with students. While at UGA, I was a member of the Math Club as well as volunteering at many organizations in the Athens and Atlanta areas. My experience includes tutoring on a weekly basis for numerous clients as well as working with students over a short period of time to help them get caught up. I have worked with students aging 12-23 over the course of the last six years or so. I have tutored in group settings in the past, but I found that one-on-one engagements seem to be the most effective. I specialize in Math ranging from the common core, to High School Calculus, to College Courses including (but not limited to): Linear Algebra, Graph Theory, and Vector Calculus on Manifolds. Aside from my experience tutoring, I have also grown up in a teaching environment. These experiences have bolstered my ability to assess a student’s challenges, and rather than judge these challenges as inhibitors, recognize them as helpful information to best understand the student’s learning style.

My target tutoring clients do not have age, level, or rigor limitations. I am happy and interested in working with clients and students who range in age, stage, and skill level. Whether you are a parent seeking extra help for your child in any range of subjects, a young person trying to pass that one math requirement, or a student engaged in a deep pursuit of math, I would love to work closely with you and develop a course of action that will best serve your demand. Ultimately, I aim to benefit the students. I always encourage feedback and suggestions from both students and parents in order to make myself more effective. I am almost always available short notice, and will always respond promptly. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a time to meet!

Math

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

During my time at UGA 90% of the classes I took revolved around the fundamental understanding of how to write proofs. Discrete Math is the introduction to this idea, the logic behind writing proofs, and methods of how to go about achieving this. I feel as though I am qualified to tutor this subject for these reasons.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

I have been tutoring for over 6 years, hold a degree in Mathematics, and have helped numerous individuals with Finite Math.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have taken many classes while at UGA (including a linear algebra course) that require a vast knowledge of linear algebra. Most notably I have taken and tutored a course that studies the vector calculus over manifolds and the linear equations that describe them. I believe this would more than qualify me to hold a basic linear algebra certification.
Logic,

Logic

I took two logic courses while at UGA in the Philosophy department. These seemed to coincide with the proof classes in the Math department. Since almost every Math class revolves around how to write proofs, and the "logic" behind how to formulate them, I feel as though I have enough qualifications to tutor this subject. Additionally, each logic class I took I achieved an "A" overall grade.

Golf

I have been playing golf since I was 4. I have played on many junior tours in High School including the SJGT and AJGA where I held a national ranking. I have held part time jobs as an Assistant Swing Coach, and Certified Club Fitter. I firmly believe this should allow me to hold this certification.
Swimming

Swimming

I have been an avid swimmer my entire life. I have competitively swam for clubs such as the NBAC (North Baltimore Aquatic Club) and the ABSC (Athens Bulldog Swim Club). I feel as though my depth of knowledge would be more than enough to hold a certification in this subject matter.
