I am a graduate of Harvard. I received my Bachelor of Arts in
Engineering Sciences - Applied Mechanics. I also have an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University. I started teaching in 1999 as a Physics/Teacher in Boston. Afterwards, I taught as an Electronics/Mathematics Teacher in Texas for about 7 years. It was in Texas that I started tutoring individuals in certain math subjects. I then taught in the Atlanta area for about 5 years. I taught Algebra 2 & Geometry at the Benjamin Banneker High School for a year and then worked 4 years at the Sunflower Learning Academy with students age ranged from K 12 in a range of Science & Math subjects. I taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, SAT Math. I also taught Math for K 8th grade. From my experience at the Sunflower Learning Academy, I just started tutoring all ages in the Math & Sciences.
The most important element for any child's self esteem is identity. We live in a society that embraces all cultures. Every child should be appreciated for who they are and what they can contribute to the American Melting pot. Consequently, I believe that every child has the ability & the right to learn. Once a student is comfortable with who and what he or she is destined to be then it is easier for them to appreciate and not be intimidated by other students. Each student has a unique contribution to make in this global society today.
In my spare time when I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, exercising, jump roping, playing chess, soccer, and running.
While I tutor a broad range of subjects which encompass Math, Physical Sciences & Engineering Sciences I am most passionate about are the high school math subjects : Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, and Probability & Statistics.
These Math topics exercise and challenge the critical thinking and analytical skills of students which are needed for them to function as responsible students in a global society.
