B.S. University of Arkansas (Industrial Engr)
Louisiana State University (Master's)
I have always had an interest in finding easy, methodical ways to solve difficult math and science problems. My interests led me to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Mathematics at the University of Arkansas. After receiving my degree, I moved to Louisiana State University, where I am now working towards my Master of Science in Industrial Engineering.
My tutoring experience spans over 5 years. I worked for the University of Arkansas and Louisiana State University athletic departments as a mathematics tutor, and worked as a private tutor for a couple of years. My experience has allowed me to significantly improve the academic performances of the individuals I have tutored, and also develop customized tutoring plans for each of my students based on their rate of learning and understanding in the assigned subject.
Since no two people are able to learn in exactly the same manner, I always determine what works best for each student and incorporate that information into my teaching style. I have also found that it is extremely effective to pause throughout the lesson to receive feedback from the student, and ensure that they have completely understood the lesson. A lot of my students are visual learners and are able to grasp information when used in a practical manner; therefore, I use real world scenarios to engage the student. In addition, it is important for me to continuously give positive feedback to my students, as this strategy has proved to occupy their interest and significantly increase their potential to succeed.
I have great interest in assisting students and watching them achieve their goals, so working as a tutor comes somewhat naturally to me.
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!

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.
While working as a math tutor, approximately 50% of my students have needed assistance in finite math. I have about 5 years of experience tutoring finite math. During this time, I have mastered the concepts, and discovered numerous ways to communicate the concepts to my students in order for them to succeed.
