"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion. I love working with students in a one-on-one setting that allows me to adapt my explanations to fit a student's individual needs.." ...

"I graduated in December 2012 from Arizona State University with degrees in Economics and Jazz Performance. Studying economics has lead me to build high levels of quantitative and qualitative understanding and analysis since the subject requires very strong mathematical and written skills. I love it! Studying math has given me an understanding of the relationships between quantities and how they change as well as logic and sound thinking. I moved to Chicago, IL in February 2013 leaving the heat of Arizona for the cold."
