"... In addition, I had the opportunity to shadow a local high school math teacher. At SLU, I worked in their Tutoring Center for one semester and during my second semester I taught a section of College Algebra. I am able to tutor many different areas of math, including Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. Of these, my favorite is definitely Calculus, because I think that there are many people with misconceptions about the subject, and I enjoy showing people that there is nothing to afraid of, and that it can actually be fun! Outside of math, my hobbies include video games and watching movies..."

"...I believe in helping students through the process of learning in a way that still allows them to do the work. I have found that just providing students with answers and checking their work does not help them to have a fundamental understanding and to gain important abilities. When I guide the student through the process but allow them to come to the answer themselves, or to identify their own mistakes, they are able to do so on their own in the future..."

"I received my Bachelor of Science in European history and theatre from Northwestern University. Both of my parents taught high school social studies, so you might say teaching runs in the family! I believe that every student has the capability to achieve academically, but that, sometimes, traditional classroom instruction isn't quite enough to lead each student to his or her potential. Working one-on-one with a student allows me to target areas of weakness, while increasing his confidence in his ability to achieve. Standardized testing isn't particularly fun, but getting into the college of your dreams is, and conquering the SAT and/or the ACT is an important step in the process..."
