The George Washington University (Economics)
Hunter College School of Education (Master's)
After tutoring in private homes for a year, I went off to China where I classroom taught English as a second language. I taught grades of Chinese speakers 6, 7, 8 and 9. I returned last summer to commence my graduate studies at Hunter College School of Education, as well as to assume responsibilities as a middle school teacher at a Charter School here in New York.
I enjoy developing relationships with my students, taking part in their growth and successes, and teaching them life skills along side the academic ones. While I specialize in math, I have been playing guitar for 14 years, enjoy sports, the outdoors, music, and international travel.
I scored a near perfect on the math portion of the SAT. I have received A's or A minus in 21 credits of college level mathematics. I have three years of classroom teaching experience, as well as two years of tutoring experience. I particularly enjoy the practical applications of math in both our everyday lives as well STEM subjects such as robotics, coding, engineering and programming.

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.
As a middle school math teacher in New York City, I am responsible for knowing the common core standards both inside and out. When I prepare for a lesson, each segment is driven by the desired student outcomes, which are backed by the common core standards.
I took finite mathematics as a freshman at the George Washington University. Not only did I receive an A for the class, I tutored other students both during and after the course. I went on to take multiple higher level courses that were built on top of the subjects introduced in Finite Math.
I have been playing guitar for 14 years. I began with 1-1 lessons, learning basic chords for songs I liked, and went on to theory and applications. To this day I continue to learn and improve my technique and method. I have taught students guitar based on their interests and goals.
For two years I was an ESL teacher in China. During that time, I became acquainted with many students who were studying for the IELTS. I had the opportunity to tutor them 1-1. All of my students scored highly.
During the spring of 2015 I took an online course in Linear Algebra, at the undergraduate level, from the University of Phoenix. I scored an A in the course. I led my class team in our group projects and subsequent final project. This course was predicated on the understanding of concepts gained from college algebra.
I taught a course titled "Study Skills" during the 2014-2015 school year. The students were 9th graders. My responsibilities included designing curriculum, planning lessons, and tracking student progress towards their goals. As a tutor, I find it helpful to learn as much as I can about the student before creating an individualized study plan for that student.
