My love for learning started at a very young age while I was homeschooled and it drove me to teach myself in many of my studies. I loved reading books that were far beyond my age range and I especially grew fond of Mathematics. Mathematics could describe how the world worked in a completely logical way and it fascinated me.
Teaching yourself is a challenge but it developed my ability to also teach others. I learned by finding the simplest way to explain it to myself and thus I was able to explain concepts to others in the simplest way possible. Mathematics especially can seem intimidating and complicated, but it can always be simplified into something that is understandable to all.
I have always loved helping and serving others. I have danced Ballet since age 5 and have always had a teacher's eye. I tried to watch my peers and see what corrections I could give them to help them get better. Even now I am still dancing and helping others to get better even if they are my competition. I believe striving to help others to succeed will help me to succeed as well and help me to become a better person.
I have tutored in Calculus previously and I longed to do more. In High School I helped all of my friends understand Math and Science without thinking of making a career out of my gift. Now I can help so many more students through being a tutor. I also teach dance to 2 year old children all the way up to teens and it has been an absolute joy to see dancers become better with my help.
I majored in Mechanical Engineering in college and quickly grasped the complex material we were learning. I still remember my first engineering class when this student who sat next to me would daily ask me for an explanation of the problem we were working on. He knew I could help him understand.
I am a passionate reader, singer, dancer, and Aunt of 8. I love cooking and writing poems. I love teaching and I am excited to be a tutor!
