I grew up in Hawaii but left the beaches to attend Boston College. In 2004 I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing with a Mathematics minor, and moved to New York City to work as a high school math teacher.
While teaching math full time in the subjects of Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, and SAT Prep, I also attended graduate school at night at Brooklyn College and earned my Master's degree in 2007 with a focus on Math Education.
I took a break from teaching to join Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a Christian missions organization, and traveled to Rwanda on a mission trip before returning to the east coast to work as a tutor. I served as the main math tutor at an education center in New Jersey for two years, helping students with their school work and aiding them in preparation for the SAT and other standardized tests including the ACT, SAT II, ISEE and SSAT.
While working as a tutor I also authored a memoir based upon my time in Rwanda and in 2011 self-published a book entitled, "A Remnant in Rwanda."
I love working with youth and teaching them the value of education, critical thinking, and living life for a great purpose. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, movies, everything Apple, and working out.
