I have always loved helping others and have experience teaching. In high school, I was a peer tutor at my high school’s tutoring center. My favorite subject to tutor was math. I worked hard to firmly grasp the material from my math classes, and every single day, I studied for at least an hour on the subject. I would do the problems over and over again, get help from my teacher, converse with classmates to fully understand the concepts, and find resources on the internet. Through all this hard work, I learned more valuable lessons than just the concepts itself. I learned how to study math. I learned that any difficult concept can be mastered with practice. I truly believe that with the right method of teaching, any learner can see the beauty in mathematics and perform well. When I was helping students at my high school’s tutoring center, I noticed that students made the same mistakes or were stuck in the same situations I was in when learning the math concepts not too long ago. It was during those moments that I knew I wanted to help others because I was there once too.
When I was taking Calculus II and III at DePaul, there were many times when I was doing calculus problems that required knowledge from my previous math classes from high school. When this happened, I thought to myself how fortunate I am to have a strong foundation in these concepts from all my hard work in the past. I thought about how tough it would have been for me if I did not work as hard as I did in the past with these math concepts. Becau
