Bio

While attending McKendree University, I began tutoring my peers in chemistry, physics, and math. After graduating with a Spanish major and math minor, I began working for Mathnasium (and later Sylvan), where I had the opportunity to teach students (ages 7-adult) using a more "outside the box" approach. That's when I realized the importance of tailoring lessons to not only meet the students' academic needs, but their personality needs, as well. Everyone learns at different paces and through...

While attending McKendree University, I began tutoring my peers in chemistry, physics, and math. After graduating with a Spanish major and math minor, I began working for Mathnasium (and later Sylvan), where I had the opportunity to teach students (ages 7-adult) using a more "outside the box" approach. That's when I realized the importance of tailoring lessons to not only meet the students' academic needs, but their personality needs, as well. Everyone learns at different paces and through different stimuli. I strive to provide a friendly environment where the student is comfortable to ask anything and everything. By really pinpointing trouble areas, we can work together to find the best-fit approach to meeting the students' goals.

I mainly focus on math, 4th grade through high school level (Pre-Calc), though I have worked with college students taking College Algebra and Calculus, as well. Over the years, I have also aided adults looking to refresh their skills as they need to study for nursing, teaching, and military entrance exams. Additionally, I would be eager to help out with any level Spanish work, (my major) as I have experience teaching a second language overseas (four years).

Whether it's elementary school homework, high school test prep, or adult standardized test review, I am happy to help!

Elementary (K-6th)

During my time at Mathnasium and Sylvan, a huge portion of the students were elementary age. In that group, I would say the largest numbers were students from 4th-6th grade because those are really critical years where the difficulty rises substantially. Long division, learning to graph points, and especially fractions are the bane of many kids' existence. Through my training, I've learned to help students actually understand what they are seeing, rather than just dreading the questions and hoping they can look at the numbers and guess.
