Over the course of my life, I've learned that I find joy in helping people. It doesn't really matter what the situations is: social, life decisions, or academia. I was able to accomplish this on a somewhat regular basis with teaching, but it didn't give me the ability to connect with students on an individual basis. Having taught as an adjunct professor and in the high school setting for five years, I understand how teachers think and how the system works. My goal is to assess where weaknesses lie in your understanding, explain and reteach when necessary, and build a better foundation so that tutoring is no longer necessary. I'm not out to teach you "tricks" or "shortcuts" to ace one test. When you leave my tutoring sessions, I want you to feel like you've gained the tools necessary to continue to succeed in the course you're in as it progresses.
If you've scrolled this far, then you've reached the point where I'm supposed to brag about my qualifications... I've taught Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, and Calculus (at varying student ability levels) for five years. I have a true curiosity when it comes to mathematics, so I try to teach in a way for others to gain an understanding of the underlying processes and ideas that mathematics express.
