My goal has been to become an educator for over a decade now. I was inspired at a young age by educators in my favorite grade school subject throughout High School. Ever since, I’ve wanted to leave marks of inspiration in other people. However, this is not my only objective.
I’ve seen fellow students struggle in the subject of Mathematics and as my experiences and awareness grew it seemed to me that the “great” teacher, the one that is able to communicate with a variety of people, were in short supply. My perspective on subjects allows me to view things in a variety of ways allowing me to create different methods of explaining the same problem. This skill helps me to find the most efficient descriptions of processes based on the student. Different people need different explanations for the same material. This has been proven time and time again from my helping with Calculus as a teacher’s assistant to Statistics; as a teacher at the college level to helping children learn fractions. My wish is to help students build a confidence through what they know and discover that they know more than they give themselves credit for.
