Currently a Math Teacher in New York. Attended Health Science Technology High School, Edison High School, Eastern Michigan University, and Rutgers University. At Edison I played Football, Basketball, and threw the javelin. I pursued a major in Actuarial Science and threw javelin in college. I received my Bachelors of Science in Actuarial Studies in April 2016 from Eastern Michigan University. I encourage students to research my degree, as it is very promising and heavily rewarding. If you have any issues with mathematics, I am more than qualified to assist. I've instructed Upward Bound High School students, SAT/ACT courses for Y2 Academy, and college courses.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Practice Makes Perfect. It sounds very cliché, but as a college student, I can assure you that doing homework and working on practice problems is the best way to understand a subject.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Begin breaking the ice by asking about the student's study habits, and having the student list out his or her weaknesses regarding the subject. I will use this information to construct a syllabus and a general equation reference sheet.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Change the teaching method. There are multiple teaching methods and techniques. I am resilient, so I will keep pushing until I find one that suits the needs of the student.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Doing the first practice problem while verbally showing the steps. Afterwards, have the student try the next couple problems with a little aid until the concept is instilled in the student.
