Bio

Until the pandemic, I studied at NIU, dual majoring in Physics and Chemistry. Therefore math subjects up to college level calculus and physical science subjects are my specialty. That being said, I scored higher on standardized testing in english and reading than I did in math in science, so I am confident teaching any core subject up to an undergraduate level.

Until the pandemic, I studied at NIU, dual majoring in Physics and Chemistry. Therefore math subjects up to college level calculus and physical science subjects are my specialty. That being said, I scored higher on standardized testing in english and reading than I did in math in science, so I am confident teaching any core subject up to an undergraduate level. I attended a small high school in St. Louis where I was mainly left to independent study, meaning I am very accustomed to doing my own research and can quickly pick up or refresh my memory on any subject.

Apart from my math-heavy dual major and NIU, I scored a 28 on the math section of the ACT in high school, and have only learned more since then.
But more importantly than just understanding the material, I remember hating math throughout elementary, and only coming to love it once I was instructed by the right teacher who seemed to genuinely recognize when I was struggling and was always ready to explain the material in different ways if I needed it. I have always striven to be like her when explaining math.

Other than dual majoring in Chemistry and Physics which has given me a deep understanding of physical science, this is the subject that I have always been most passionate about. I love nothing more than to help people understand why things work the way they do, and I found that often the best way to accomplish that is to simply find the way they learn best. I truly believe that everybody has a love for science somewhere in them, it's just about finding what aspect of science they find most interesting and building everything off of that interest. I heard it said once that the nature of the entire world could be gleaned from a single grain of sand, and that saying has helped me personally to better understand the science of the world around me.

Reading was my highest score on the ACT, a 34. More than that, when I was a child, I actually had to be punished for reading too much. I would stay up all night working through whatever book caught my

Reading was my highest score on the ACT, a 34, but standardized tests only prove so much. as a child, I actually had to be punished for reading so much, as I would routinely stay up for entire nights reading away at whatever subject or series had my interest at the time. During elementary, when we had to do a specific amount of reading, I was the person all of my peers would turn to for book suggestions, since I'd read so many and was aware of the subjects of many more.

Algebra 1

At Northern Illinois University, I dual-majored in Chemistry and Physics, two subjects that are incredibly centered around math. If that does not speak to my love for math, I'm not sure how else to convey it. I've loved math for as long as I can remember. With many members of my family working careers in engineering and science, I had many role models to instill the importance of the subject into me. Subjects from Algebra to Trigonometry are my specialties, but I have studied statistics, calculus, and business as well.
