### Komal

I am a graduate of Ohio State University. I received my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics on May 8. Starting August, I will study for a Masters of Science in Mathematics at University of Akron. I am very excited to study and teach mathematics. I feel that every math problem is a mini game. :) I believe that teachers should always be passionate and patient about the subject they are teaching. My favorite teachers have been the ones who are truly excited when they are conveying the lessons to their students. Teaching is not only a career that I'm pursuing after graduate school, it is also something I have done for the past 2.5 years. I have over 500 hours of experience teaching 55 minute classes following curriculum-based lesson plans to more than 150 students at MathWizard, an after school learning center. I have taught a 7-year old girl with Down's syndrome how to ride a bike without training wheels, a high school classmate with autism how to play chess, and my fellow knitting club members how to knit. Patience is my best quality, and this I feel is a key quality that all teachers should have. In my free time, I enjoy watching drama serials, playing squash (similar to racquetball), and baking desserts. :)
