About Casey


Bio

Hi there!

My name is Casey. I am a graduate with Highest Distinction of UNC-Chapel Hill with a major in Global Economics, Trade and Development. I have been a teaching assistant at UNC for two different Honors-level courses, and I have experience homeschooling high-school courses in physics, math and Spanish. For years, I have loved tutoring in a variety of topics–algebra, geometry, calculus, Spanish, English, physics, Excel, to name a few–and have worked with both elementary and more...

Hi there!

My name is Casey. I am a graduate with Highest Distinction of UNC-Chapel Hill with a major in Global Economics, Trade and Development. I have been a teaching assistant at UNC for two different Honors-level courses, and I have experience homeschooling high-school courses in physics, math and Spanish. For years, I have loved tutoring in a variety of topics–algebra, geometry, calculus, Spanish, English, physics, Excel, to name a few–and have worked with both elementary and more advanced students of almost all ages.

I like devising creative ways to learn and remember concepts– my own home is full of chalk-boards with my quirky drawings that help me learn things from class more quickly and effectively. Receiving affirmation that someone has learned something from a tutoring lesson is a reaffirmation that I understand a topic, which I find immensely rewarding. I like connecting with students through topics that might feel mundane in a typical classroom setting, and I believe that there is something interesting to learn in every homework assignment or school project.

I love solving problems using numbers and equations–math has been a hobby since I was in elementary school! I tutor friends and family whenever the need arises. I placed out of all college math by my junior year of high school, scoring 5's on the AP Calculus AB and BC exams. I have taken more advanced math courses in college, including Microeconomics and Advanced International Economics, which both required a solid grasp of Algebra and Geometry.

I completed a Spanish minor at UNC-Chapel Hill, worked as a translator for the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, conducted research in Spanish with the Ecuadorian Ministry of Public of Health and currently work as Field Interviewer with RTI International doing Spanish interviews with migrant farmworkers on North Carolina farms.

I have taken Business 520, "Advanced Spreadsheet Modeling" through UNC's Kenan Flagler Business School. Additionally, I have developed excel skills through my college physics and chemistry courses and through maintaining a personal business.

Please reach out to me with any questions about specific subjects, topics, or assignments–I will be honest with how prepared I feel to help with your tutoring need! I am pretty flexible and am happy to meet at a mutually beneficial location, whether that is at a home or a coffee shop.

Elementary Math

I have tutored a number of students in elementary school math. To name a few topics I have experience with: basic addition and subtraction, long division, multiplication tables, adding, subtracting and reducing fractions, and word problems. I can also tutor based on test topics, class handouts or homework assignments. Math has been a favorite pastime since I was young (my dad always challenged me with new math problems from a very young age). I passed out of all college-level math by my junior year of high school, but I love returning to the foundations (elementary and middle school math) to reinforce my own understanding. I really enjoy helping students of all ages better understand math concepts, and I create an individualized learning strategy for each student that I work with.

Study Skills

I have demonstrated my ability to be organized with studies from elementary school through college. I made straight A's in Elementary and Middle school, graduated 2nd in rank of 651 students in high school and placed out of over 40 hours of college courses, some through self-studying for standardized tests (AP). In college, I have proven success in courses of many disciplines–i.e.physics, organic chemistry, political science, anthropology, Spanish–while working jobs and volunteering over 1000 service hours through a UNC public service scholars program. I like to study smart, not hard, though, and I have a few easy strategies that could easily be communicated to students of all ages.
