I received my Bachelors and Master's of Mathematics from the University of Cincinnati. Many of my courses focused on statistics. Since graduation, I have taught mathematics courses to college students. I have several years experience tutoring students in person as well as online. I have taught and tutored various levels of mathematics including beginning algebra, intermediate algebra, college algebra, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus. I enjoy teaching all levels of mathematics, but I enjoy calculus the most. When I tutor a student I try and build on a fundamental concept the student may already have an understanding of. I feel if a student can develop an understanding of a new concept using previous knowledge the student becomes more confident in their understanding of the new concept. I also feel a positive environment is most conducive for learning. I try to provide an environment that is not intimidating because I understand many students find mathematics in itself to be intimidating. In my free time, I enjoy running, zumba, watching NFL and NCAA basketball games, and spending time with my family. I recently finished my first half marathon and would like to eventually run a full marathon.
