" My students were always successful with the state tests and I have recently had emails from two former students that told me that are working towards their teaching degrees because of my influence.

"These "sessions" ranged from explaining stuff to friends during lunch, doing volunteer tutoring after school, helping to coach the MATHCOUNTS (national math contest for middle schoolers - kind of like the math equivalent of the spelling bee, but way cooler) team at my old middle school, leading calculus team practice, and formal for-pay tutoring through online programs and local organizations. I've worked with students who were behind and needed help catching up, and with students who were ahead of the game but wanted to get to the next level of math excellence. The students that I have worked with have gone on to have ...

"Why? What’s going on? What’s our problem and how can we solve it together? They need to know you’ll care before they’ll answer. Many times the reason for an outburst in class or confusion about an assignment is an underlying need for help or an issue. This may be the minor need of extra practice on two digit multiplying, or the “why” of fractions. As a teacher, wife, sister, friend, aunt, daughter, and student, I have learned that you need to back up and figure out the cause of the problem."

"My path was becoming more and more clear and I loved every part of it. When I graduated from CSUN, I wasn't quite ready to settle into the "real world."

"I'm determined to see the education level of this country rise. As a dancer, I was often put in charge of younger kids and helped them learn routines, especially ones that were struggling. I had a knack for helping kids remember their moves through catchphrases and alternate explanations of how the movement was supposed to work. I carried that over to my tutoring, where I would aid friends by coming up with mnemonic devices and extended metaphors that allowed them to understand the concepts better. Also, the opportunity to work with students one-on-one really gave me insight into their learning style, and I could adapt my teaching to ...
