I have a Master's in pure mathematics as well as experience tutoring at all levels, pre-K through adult. I have worked extensively with disabled and otherwise accommodations-requiring students, particularly those on the autism spectrum. I have been a TA for several Calculus courses (I-III) at UC Davis and previously taught at the UC Boulder Upward Bound summer program; I have also worked as a teacher's aide, program coordinator, and camp counselor in multiple dynamic educational environments.
I believe that the first step toward a fruitful tutoring relationship is a strong emphasis on communication and trust. Most mathematics students struggle at some point with self-doubt and "math anxiety." The creation of a safe and productive environment in which to explore and experiment with mathematical methods is crucial to gaining the psychological footing that allows learning growth. This is the first factor that I consider when beginning a tutelage relationship.
In addition to mathematics, I tutor language arts and Spanish for non-native speakers.
In my personal studies, I am interested in all things networks, especially covert social networks and epidemiology. Outside of mathematics, I am a prose poet and essayist, and have a strong academic interest in school and workplace violence prevention.
