I graduated from American University in 2016 with a BS in Mathematics and Economics. As a student, I tutored for the Department of Math and Stats for students from pre-algebra through Calculus III, Linear Algebra, and Proofs. I have been a teaching assistant in College Algebra and Introductory Physics. I have also served as a reading and writing tutor, particularly on standardized test skills. My expertise is working with traditionally difficult students, those with learning disabilities and a distaste for their subjects.
I love tutoring, and I firmly believe everybody can be a great student. I really struggled to read when I was younger, but because I had a great teacher, I became really passionate about what I do. I want to make learning something uncomplicated and natural for a student by making them interested and engaged. That means taking a subject and tailoring it to their interests. I get to know the students I work with and hope to make lasting connections with them, so that they can connect to their future academic goals.
I am currently a data analyst and economist in the energy sector. Tutoring is my way to keep my skills sharp and knowledge up to date. I am planning on returning to graduate school in 2020. I am interested in developing long term tutoring relationships with my students. While I enjoy working on current coarse work a student is struggling with, I also have experience in creating an advanced study schedules for students who have fallen behind or wish to work ahead in their subjects.
