I taught in public schools for three years (2014-2017). My first year I taught Algebra I at Belmont High School in Dayton, OH and I taught General Science for two years at South Dearborn Middle School in Aurora, IN. I also substituted off and on in Hamilton county, OH for nearly ten years, including a long-term assignment where I taught Algebra II and AP Calculus.
I have a Bachelors degree from Northern Kentucky University where I majored in mathematics (with an emphasis on Probability & Statistics) and minored in the biological sciences. I’ve provided statistical support for a professor of biological sciences and worked in traditional tutoring centers and 1:1 in-home and library tutoring providing support to students in pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus and calculus. I'm certified in mathematics and science in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
I specialize in tutoring math topics from pre-algebra through calculus and statistics. I'm patient and easy-going, and I explain mathematical concepts well. I provide homework help and explain theorems and examples in a way that is easy to understand for the student. One of the greatest rewards in this endeavor is to see a concept "click" with the student, and hearing the student say, "Oh, I get it now!" In each lesson the student will practice several problems at his or her own pace as I guide him or her along and provide simple explanations in the event the student gets stuck on a problem.
