I received my education at the University of Minnesota Morris where I earned a triple major in Sociology, Psychology, and Political Science. I am a certified 8-12 social studies teacher. I am currently teaching 9th and 10th grade at a high school. Last year I worked with the Apollo 20 program were I taught Algebra 1 students. I have excellent math skills. I tutor Algebra 1, World Geography, World History, US History, Government, Sociology, and Psychology. My favorite to tutor is Algebra 1, since it is not just simply memorizing everything, but seeing the process unfold before you. I am very flexible when it comes to my teaching styles. I easily adjust myself to the student's need. I am also very big on responsibility as well. Outside of school I love to participate and watch sports. I played rugby and softball in college. I also danced for 12 years leading up to doing choreography work for college and being the dance coach at my school.
