Through out my life I have come to understand that education is the gateway for opportunity, and I love working with students to help them expand their opportunities. Education has allowed me to live and travel all over the country and world. I attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia where I double majored in Economics and Political Science to earn my BA. Upon graduation from college, I joined Teach for America in New York City. I taught middle school math for 5 years - 3 years in the South Bronx and 2 years in East Harlem. In my first two years of teaching I earned a Masters of science in Teaching from Pace University. While teaching, I integrated music, technology, and cooking into the classroom to motivate and inspire my students to develop an understanding of, and passion for mathematics. While teaching, I also began a school store in both of my schools where I used the profits to help fund much needed resources for the schools. My philosophy for working with students is to make their experience, fun, engaging, and meaningful so that they may understand the importance of the concepts that they are learning.
After teaching for 5 years I decided I wanted to make more of an impact within communities similar to the ones I worked with. Thus two years ago I returned home to Los Angeles to attend USC's Marshall school of Business. This past summer I graduated from USC with my Master of Business Administration.
My favorite subject to tutor is math. Any kind of Math including elementary math, middle school math, and pre algebra.
In addition, to loving mathematics, I love music and listen to all types of music. I find it super fun to develop songs around mathematical concepts. I like to work with music from a variety of artist including but not limited to Miley Cyrus, Adele, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, and Nina Simone.
