I have a degree from James Madison University where I double majored in math and physics and minored in business. I have interned for NASA, managed a Mathnasium, and I am currently a data analyst for Parsons Corporation.
I have tutored privately, for a nonprofit, for tutoring centers at James Madison University, or for Mathnasium since 2009. I specialize in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus 1. I feel comfortable working with students of all ages and aptitudes. I have experience working with students with special needs, brain injuries, and ADHD.
I am passionate about teaching math because each student thinks and learns differently. I always try to explain math in a way that makes sense to the student I'm working with. If a student is frustrated, that just means I need to find a different way to explain the same concept. I want my students to feel comfortable, encouraged, and accomplished. When I teach I use leading questions to make sure the student is engaged.
Please let me know if you have any questions about my experience or methods.
