Even though I majored in pre-medicine at Clark University, I have always loved the field of mathematics. Despite my demanding schedule, I took several courses in math. These included Calculus I,II, and III, Differential Equations, linear algebra, Multivariate Calculus, as well as Basic Statistics, Probability and Statistics, and probability for actuarial science.

I am interested in tutoring students in middle school, high school, and college level Algebra I and II and Geometry. Most recently, I have tutored adults and teens who were preparing for the GED test. I found this job very rewarding as it was always a pleasure to see a student progress from struggling with math to succeeding in it. I enjoyed answering their queries when they had a problem. By listening to them, I gained insight about their knowledge of a particular type of problem.
I think that I was successful as a tutor because I am patient and approachable and value the success of my students.
While I was tutoring for the GED program students would approach me with worksheets. First, I would break the problem down into manageable steps. I would then explain what was being asked in the problem, and would relate to them how I arrived at that conclusion. I am not judgmental. This makes it possible for my students to say what they do not know.
Many times a student would ask me to explain a question many times and I never lost patience repeating it. I would go through each step and explain it carefully. Throughout this process, I encouraged the student to ask questions. It is important for me to know if my approach is helpful. I am open to suggestions.
