About Holly


Bio

Hi, I'm Holly! I'm a senior at Brigham Young University, majoring in Math Education with a minor in Spanish Education. I've always loved learning, especially the process of discovering how and why things work. Both these pieces are very important to me, as many times education focuses too much on teaching students the processes of how to solve problems instead of why a procedure works--whether it's a math formula or a Spanish grammar concept.

Hi, I'm Holly! I'm a senior at Brigham Young University, majoring in Math Education with a minor in Spanish Education. I've always loved learning, especially the process of discovering how and why things work. Both these pieces are very important to me, as many times education focuses too much on teaching students the processes of how to solve problems instead of why a procedure works--whether it's a math formula or a Spanish grammar concept. I've found that I learn best when I discover things for myself, with teacher support, instead of just being told the answer. This helps me remember new concepts better so I can draw on them more effectively. I try to include teaching styles like this in my tutoring.

I'm currently studying math education and have taken math through Calculus 4. However, more beneficial than just knowledge of mathematics has been the opportunity to take math education-specific classes. As I've taken courses on simplifying explanations for students, helping students discover connections for themselves, and asking helpful questions, I have grown in my ability to express what I know.

I studied Spanish throughout high school, and then while living in Spain for a year and a half I was able to further strengthen my language skills. I've spent over a year tutoring students taking online Spanish 1, 2, 3, and AP, which has given me insight into common struggles students have and how to help remedy them. As someone who started out barely knowing how to count from "uno" to "diez," I know that learning a new language can be frustrating, but I also know that it can make sense with hard work and help.

I love to hear feedback from students and parents on how to improve my teaching practice so that learning can be a positive experience for everyone. I'm easy to reach and will respond to messages as quickly as possible. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to schedule a lesson!
