About Olivia

Hi!

I'm Olivia K. I just graduated from St. Olaf College (UM YA YA!) with a BA in Mathematics and a concentration in Educational Studies. Last fall I student taught and received my license to teach 5-12 math. I have been lead teaching middle school math since January.

I love teaching and tutoring, and I'm incredibly passionate about education and math (in particular). I believe that learning is a lifelong process, and that a subject area is not something that can be "mastered." Instead, I believe it is important to understand themes within a discipline and to grasp the big pictures and concepts of the material. That being said, when I tutor, I make sure that my students understand why they are doing what they are doing. I do not think it is enough to know how to simply solve equations. Students need to know why they are able to solve equations in certain ways,and what a solved equation is really stating.

I have been tutoring since I was in 9th grade, and I have tutored elementary, middle, and high school math topics.
I love working with students, and one of my favorite things is to see a student begin to understand a mathematical concept. I hope you will consider hiring me to tutor your student!
