I received my Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and English from Converse College in 2007. I was a Computer Science minor and and undergraduate Computer Science tutor during my senior year. I received my Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences from Clemson University in 2009, where I was both a graduate teaching assistant and a graduate research assistant before becoming a graduate teacher of record. My area of specialty is Algebra/Operations Research. I presented my research at FAU during the Southeastern International Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory, and Computing two consecutive years, 2008 and 2009. Since graduation, I have spent over three years teaching Mathematics at the college/university level. I recently relocated to Houston, Texas, where I intend to continue teaching, tutoring, and mentoring. I have worked with third through fifth grade students with reading difficulties for nearly 10 years. I am primarily a Mathematics tutor, but my first love is English, and I truly enjoy working with students in Computer Science as well. Since my MS from Clemson is a breadth degree, I am an expert in all six areas of Mathematics. My goal is to turn negative attitudes towards difficult subjects into positive attitudes with accomplishment and understanding on the part of my students. I am a firm proponent of education, believing that your education is the only thing that is ever truly yours. Once you attain knowledge it is yours for life, unlike material possessions which come and go. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, yoga, walking, and watching movies.
