I am currently a double major at Rice University working towards a B.A. in mathematics and philosophy and expecting to graduate in December 2015. My education is geared towards a future in risk analysis and thus is heavily dependent on high level mathematics. My favorite subject is statistics. Not only does statistics incorporate other disciplines like calculus, but it also is very useful for modeling the real world. I have about one year of experience tutoring algebra and pre-algebra with good results.
I can tutor through 8th grade math including pre-algebra, algebra 1-4, as well as statistics, pre-calculus, and ACT/SAT mathematics prep.
My teaching philosophy is that practice makes perfect. When I am not working towards my degree, I am usually playing on a piano or listening to music while maybe skateboarding. I also like to watch lacrosse and rugby matches.
