I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Texas Southern University in Psychology, and am presently working on my Master’s degree in School Counseling at Capella University. I tutor students in Math from the elementary level through Algebra 1. I enjoy tutoring in math because it is often a subject that students dislike, and through working with them I have been able to help many appreciate that math is needed every day, and is not as daunting as it seems.
When I was in school, I didn’t know how to ask for help when I was having trouble understanding the information we were learning. I still managed to earn high grades every year, but there were several moments of self-doubt and fear of being perceived as incompetent for asking for help. As I began tutoring during my undergraduate studies, I realized that those negative thoughts were silly and there is no shame in seeking help when you don’t have the answers. When I work with students, I do my best to build their confidence in the subject area through practice and positive affirmations, and encourage them to ask any questions they may have. I never want my students to feel like they cannot or should not ask for help when they need it most.
