My first math lesson was when I was three years old. When I learned how to add numbers, I realized that there are numerous ways to find a solution, which propelled me to math being my favorite subject. I enjoyed seeing how numbers, logic, and operations come together. Now as a college student pursuing a dual degree in Finance and Business Analytics, I need to apply these math concepts into the business world.
Out of all the subjects I have taken, math has been the consistent honors class I take every year. In other words, I always take the highest offered math course that school year allows me to take. In my 5th grade honors math class, I got the highest prealgebra pretest grade out of the whole class. While other students scored in the 50s, I got a 82. Since then, I knew math was my passion. I also did math league competitions and math Olympiad throughout middle and high school. I understood everything the teacher said and quickly became a secondary teacher for my classmates outside the classroom.
My first tutoring experience took place in high school. While I took the most accelerated math subjects, I assisted others on their lower math subjects-subjects I took years before. I took my interest of math into AP Statistics, AP Calc, and Multivariable Calc and loved how the symbols created almost a new language of math. When I tutor students, my biggest advice is to understand and memorize the concept before applying formulas and operations into the problem. Practice is a big emphasis to succeed, especially higher degree math. I can teach basically any type of math lower than multivariable calculus, with exception to geometry, since I am not as strong as algebra or calculus. I really do not have a favorite math subject to tutor, since they all connect with each other and I have different styles to teach each of them.
Outside of math, I am a big sports fan, and love applying statistics to specific teams and players. I also love playing poker.
