I am a graduate from Michigan State University with a B.A. in English literature, a specialization in creative writing and minors in Linguistics and Japanese. I am currently pursuing certification as a teacher of mathematics, Japanese, and English literature at the secondary level. I have worked for the last year and a half as a tutor of students grades 4th-12th in math, English, reading skills, study skills, and English and reading ACT prep.
My specialty in math is in helping students who struggle with the abstract nature of math to understand why the steps are the way they are, and in helping to improve the student’s fluency with math vernacular. Because I come from a verbal background, I work especially well with students who excel at verbal subjects, but struggle at math.
