"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.." ...

" Before the Peace Corps I graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont with a Bachelors Degree in Economics where I studied Micro and Macro Economics and Regression Analysis as well as Math and Spanish. My mother is from Spain and my father is from the United States, therefore I grew up speaking both English and Spanish fluently at home and in school. I love to meet new people, work with both children, youth and adults and teach and tutor in a very interactive and social manner, working through problems and homework with students, teaching through practice and studying alongside the student in a very social direct way.." ...

"I taught Geometry and Algebra I. I enjoyed the classes where I was able to teach students in a more one-on-one environment. After graduating, I got a job as a high school Mathematics teacher in a small town in Wyoming. I taught 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and a senior level Math. I enjoyed teaching in a more hands-on approach in Wyoming. In the fall of 2007, I was able to teach Pre-calculus and Algebra I in a school in South Dakota."

" That means I know calculus inside and out, and I especially what it means in real world terms. Additionally, I've worked with students from high school through college on calculus, physics, and introductory economics, and have developed an appreciation for different styles of learning.
