My name is Adrienne, and I am from Phoenix, Arizona. I moved to Denver 3 years ago to attend law school and to get a change of scenery. I recently graduated from law school and I am in the process of beginning my second career. Prior to law school, I was a high school mathematics teacher and adjunct professor in Phoenix, Arizona. As a educator, I taught high school regular and remedial math students in the areas of Algebra through Pre-Calculus, university entry business classes, and lower level math classes. As an undergraduate student I tutored for the university, a local high school, and I was a private tutor to a student during her sophomore year through her senior year.
My educational background includes a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics from Pepperdine University, a Masters in Secondary Education specializing in curriculum and instruction from Grand Canyon University, a Masters in Business Administration from Arizona State University, and a Juris Doctorate from University of Denver. My extensive education is attributed to my desire to be the best in my field. In my spare time I enjoy Crossfit, trying new restaurants, and movie night Fridays with my family. I also visit my Texas family about three times a year and take a major trip every other year. My most recent adventure was a trip to Italy!
My teaching philosophy is to take complex concepts and simplify them by learning a step by step process followed by demonstrations and student practice. Many times students have challenges in math because they are missing a step. As a tutor, it is my job to identify gaps and fill them so the student will be successful moving forward.
