I've always loved mathematics. I received a BA in math and physics and a MA in math from Wesleyan University. During those 4 years, I assist taught a number of courses ranging from calculus to discrete mathematics to probability. I also private tutored all levels of mathematics.
Summer of 2014, I was the head instructor at a children's academic camp (Johns Hopkins: Center for Talented Youth). The course was Paradoxes and Infinities, which is a survey of many different areas of mathematics and the class consisted of 7th to 10th graders.
I'm passionate about teaching because I find the challenge to articulate why principles are what they are, how to use them and why they're relevant exciting. I've been told that my approach to explain concepts in a variety of ways and directly demonstrate real world applications is effective. I love working with students, watching them grow and showing them why math is beautiful.
