I believe that the role of a teacher goes beyond the sharing of academic knowledge; it extends to providing mental guidance for students as well. Jim Henson once said, "[kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are." With the belief in mind, I try my very best to be a role model and inspire my students to act and speak with integrity at all times.
I graduated from University of California, Davis with a B.S. in Mathematics and a minor in Economics in 2008 and have been teaching ever since. In the past seven years, I've come in contact with about a thousand students at various ages. I learned to design, scaffold, and explain concepts using different methods according to students' best interests. I also worked closely with learning specialists to modify lessons and assignments for students with different needs. I've created common core aligned assessments that targeted students' ability to understand and explain core concepts. I've always been looking for ways to better my teaching because It is truly satisfying for me when i can make a difference in a child's life!
As an experienced teacher, I believe that while teaching can be tough, it is one of the most rewarding jobs! I teach with a passion and I believe every child is capable of learning and achieving any goal they have in mind. My previous background in classroom environment has afforded me the skills to become a great tutor and I can't wait to meet my students!
