About Othelia

Let' s make math fun! Mathematics is an anxiety inducing subject for many. With patient guidance, math can become less stressful and more rewarding. When tutoring a student, the clarity in their eyes once they understand how to solve a problem is a source of great joy for me.

I have been a lover of math and science for as long as I can remember. The skills you acquire through learning and practicing these subjects can be applied in everyday life. Examples include: shopping at the grocery store to find discounted prices and comparing prices per unit of different product's quantities, in a restaurant when applying a tip, and when your own children some day come to you with their own questions about homework.

A professor once said that math is not a spectator sport, and that truthful statement has long stuck with me. You cannot learn math by watching someone else do you. Your engagement and own written (or computer inputted) work is essential to your success and understanding. I also understand that an interpreter who is fluent in math aiding you through your studies who also speaks your language well can make the world of a difference. Well I am your interpreter; I can read, write, understand, and teach the the language of math

I have an Associate's in Physical Science and a Bachelor's in Mathematics with a concentration in Actuarial Science.
My experience throughout the years in helping others to learn math has shown me that I am competent in finding suitable methods for each individual student to understand the material at hand.

Please contact me without hesitation to begin tutoring lessons. I look forward to helping you like (and maybe even love) math. The more you like it, the easier it'll be!
