About AYYA

I hold a bachelor's degree in Accounting and Classics (Greek and Latin). I've worked in the corporate world for many years, and tutored Math on the side during that time. However, I've come to realize my true passion lies in teaching Mathematics, and I want to do this as much us possible. After reflecting, I decided to change careers and become a teacher.

I am authorized to be a Substitute Teacher in Illinois. After being certified to Sub in 4 different counties, I sub almost every day at various schools at the high school and middle school level.

When I was in sixth grade, I took the SAT, and scored high enough to be placed in high school math through a special program. Since then, I've been a little ahead of my peers. Using this gift, I wanted to help as many people as I could.

As a tutor, I've worked with students of various backgrounds and age groups. My students range from pre-high school to adults in their fifties. I've also helped students with ADD/ADHD, and war veterans succeed in learning. I am very patient, and pride myself on being attentive and caring about how my students are doing in learning their class material.

My expertise is SAT Math, ACT Math, K-7 math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I have also worked with students taking Statistics, Probability, Chemistry, and Physics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I scored a near perfect on the ACT Math section when I took it in high school. I love seeing students succeed, and I enjoy very much to work with them to improve upon their original score.


I am very experienced in Calculus. I took AP Calculus BC in high school, and passed the AP exam with a 5 out of 5. I have also taken Calculus III in college. Since this time, I've helped many students improve their grades in Calculus.

Discrete Math

I've taken Discrete Mathematics in college. I enjoyed that class very much. While I was taking the class, I helped several fellow classmates understand the material. After the class was over, I have been tutoring students in Discrete Math for quite a while.


I got an A in Geometry, and I enjoy it very much. I have tutored this subject for quite a while, and many students and parents are very happy with my help.


I was a Classics (Greek and Latin) major in college. I took at least one Latin class every semester of college, and was inducted into Eta Sigma Phi (National Classics Honors Fraternity).
