I am a graduate of both Michigan State University and Brooklyn College. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Women’s Studies with a focus on African History. I also have a Master of Science in Math Education. Before I went back to school to become a math teacher, I worked as a bookkeeper for a non-profit, an organizer for a national conference that connects media arts and education, and as an editor for a local newspaper in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan. I have been a classroom teacher for eight years, teaching mainly math (but also science, literacy, and journalism) at both a high school and middle school level. I love working one-on-one with students to help them understand they can do so much more than they think they can. While I tutor multiple subjects, I am most passionate about teaching math. My goal with my students is to guide them through their challenges, facilitating their understanding through questioning, practice, and discovery. I want them to not just understand what they are learning, but to truly own their knowledge and begin to appreciate and LOVE what they are doing. In my spare time, I love to read, swim, dance, sing, and practice yoga.
