I believe that anything can seem easy if it's presented in the right way, at the right pace. If I can make a student interested in a topic and engage with their learning style, learning happens much faster and more effectively, and doesn't feel like work. I endeavor to interest students in any topic (but especially math) by giving them a sense of a larger context. In particular, I love to bring college-level math concepts to students in a way anyone can understand, which often demonstrates WHY the math they’re doing matters. It also shows that math can be just plain cool, which I don’t think our curricula prioritize enough.

Besides teaching, I enjoy practicing parkour and tricking (acrobatic martial arts), playing video games, and reading fiction.
