I love seeing that light-bulb moment on a student's face when they finally get math. Unfortunately math gets a bad rap for being hard and complicated, but I believe that the learner has yet to figure out how to apply the math to their everyday lives. I live to show them that. I live to prove how interesting math really is, and how it is an integral part of everything that we do. When I teach or tutor a student, I like to give lots of encouragement. Students needing the help with math need their confidence built up and lots of encouragement and support.

A little background on me: I graduated from Tarleton State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a Texas teaching certification and a minor in English. I often get asked "Why English as a minor?" and my response is always the same: English as a minor shows that I have great communications skills on top of my existing math skills.

While in college I tutored in the math clinic and was a supplemental instruction leader holding my own tutoring sessions outside the math clinic. I helped to tutor students in College Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Calculus I, II, & III.

After graduating, I taught middle school and high school math including 7th grade math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, AP Calculus.

So to say that I love teaching math is definitely an understatement. I also love connecting math to my everyday life and hobbies. My hobbies include walking my dog, programming my Android phone, watching TV, and movies.
