I finished earning my BA in Mathematics and minor in Psychology in 2021. I have a deep love for teaching others, especially math. Many students ask when doing higher-level math, "Why are we learning this?" and "I'm never going to use this in my life". One of my goals as a tutor is to help others to be able to see math applications in real-world contexts. As a tutor, I see it as a part of my job to help students see the value of learning higher-level math and answer those questions.

I finished earning my BA in Mathematics and minor in Psychology in 2021. I have a deep love for teaching others, especially math. Many students ask when doing higher-level math, "Why are we learning this?" and "I'm never going to use this in my life". One of my goals as a tutor is to help others to be able to see math applications in real-world contexts. As a tutor, I see it as a part of my job to help students see the value of learning higher-level math and answer those questions.
I see tutoring as a way to personalize learning. My style of tutoring is based on the idea that everyone learns differently. I like to get to know students' particular learning styles to help optimize the learning of different subjects. I do this through working with students one on one. I like to observe their methods of tackling problems and understand how they talk about themselves. I use psychology to help my students understand themselves and optimize their learning.
I have worked as a TA and Math Tutor for elementary, high school, and college students. I specialize in high school Algebra and Precalculus, but I can teach math from Kindergarten all through Precalculus. During college, I worked as both a grader and TA for Precalculus and also helped tutor fellow students. Also, I volunteered to tutor young children through a program on campus for a year and have experience working with special needs kids. Currently, I am tutoring students in AP Algebra 2 and 4th Grade math. Though I am relatively new to the tutoring scene, I do have a ton of experience working with students and helping them achieve their goals.
I do both in-person and online tutoring. I prefer to tutor in person since it is easier for me to learn about my students, but I also do online as an option. If you want to know more about me, my tutoring style and philosophy, and options/scheduling for tutoring, please send me a message through Wyzant's platform!
