I am a recent graduate of Hampshire College with a background in teaching math intensive subject matter to students studying the humanities. I’ve TA’d four semesters of college classes, and in that time, I have developed a passion for instilling a love of learning. My senior thesis was in the field of education; I developed an electronics curriculum intended to be taught to math-phobic artists and designers. Due to my personal history with learning disabilities, I have a great deal of practice reframing the perspective in which material is considered, learned, and taught, in order to cater to each individuals’ needs. I am a strong believer that absolutely anyone can learn to work fluidly with the concepts presented in math classes, and that material is best engaged with in modalities suited to an individual’s learning style. I tutor all maths taught before the end of highschool, from Elementary classes through Calculus BC. I believe firmly in teaching students the skills they need to solve problems on their own, and in doing so, helping them learn to perform this process for themselves in the future. I practice martial arts, and recently have begun some yoga. I enjoy dancing and running. I have three plants, and like to play tag. I used to practice some circus skills, and love to play a wide variety of games. I think feminism is rad, and that one of the best things to practice is seeing everyone as a person. I have a Bachelors in Electronic Design, and love to learn.
