I graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Economics and a minor in Spanish. I find economics fascinating and really enjoy talking about the science of the US economy. During college, I spent a year studying in Argentina and came to love South American culture. I'd like to live there again someday. I also like to ski (Tahoe is my favorite place), run on dirt trails around Black Mountain, and read good books. In high school, I enjoyed Algebra and Calculus, and I am most confident tutoring these subjects. I used to look forward to taking Algebra and Calculus tests because my teachers equipped me with the skills I needed to confidently approach tough test questions. This is the vision I have for my students: that they will be prepared with the knowledge that math questions are tough, and that they will have the skills and confidence to find solutions to these problems without fear. Math is hard. It can be one of the most frustrating subjects because so much discipline is required to truly grasp each mathematical concept. Once you've put in the work, math turns out to be a gem among school subjects because it is so rewarding. I'd like to help each of my students experience these joyous moments along his or her scholastic journey.
