I have one semester of teaching mathematics on the college level. I also have experience working as a mathematics tutor with 6 years experience. I mostly tutor algebra and some calculus. At my undergraduate institution, Southeast Missouri State University, I double majored in engineering physics and applied mathematics and minored in computer science. Next, I attended Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville for my masters in computer science.

I have one semester of teaching mathematics on the college level. I also have experience working as a mathematics tutor with 6 years experience. I mostly tutor algebra and some calculus.

Next, I attended Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville for my masters in computer science.
I enjoy tutoring because it is satisfying to help someone achieve their goals in mathematics. It also helps me keep my math skills sharp. I believe in doing multiple problems so they become like 'muscle memory'. I relate it to lifting weights, when you lift 225lb once that shows you have the capability to lift that weight, but when you can do 3 sets of 10 that shows you have mastered that weight level. So when you can find the solution of multiple versions of the same type of problem that shows you have mastery.
I continue to practice these skills everyday as a math tutor.
My main occupation is writing code, so I stay familiar with it.
