I graduated from Washington State University with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Biotechnology. While in college, I tutored for almost four years in classes ranging from high school algebra to college level calculus, and in a variety of environments, including tutoring in small groups and online.
I enjoy tutoring math because it is often one of the most frustrating subjects for students. I like to show students that math doesn’t have to be painful. In order to do this, I will often start with a basic problem that has an intuitive answer, identify the concept behind the problem, and then expand the concept in order to solve more complex problems. Teaching this way also provides students with a blueprint to independently solve problems in the future. In this way, I think it’s important to teach students how to be more self-sufficient in the learning process, and that includes relaying tips for taking tests and managing one’s time.
In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, watching the Portland Trailblazers, and cooking.
