I was born into a family of teachers and have felt the inclination to teach or tutor for some time. Since I started my own company and switched to making my own schedule, it seems like now is just as good a time as any to become a professional tutor! I went to a magnet high school for technology and science and in college, I studied Applied Mathematics with an emphasis in Physics so it's safe to say most of my education has been centered around STEM. Even still, I used to think I was bad at math until my second year of college taking an intro to business math class and decided I needed to switch majors. The rest is history. In my experience, math is one of those subjects that people seem the most fearful of learning; sometimes believing they are predisposed to not being able to learn it. I think that while it might be harder for some people, a lot depends on how it is taught, so seeking help from tutors is quite possibly the best way to go if you're struggling to learn it from a more standardized source. I promise to help you find what clicks even if I'm helping you with some software or something seemingly not super math intensive because I believe with practice, anything is possible and the "aha!" moments are always the best.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: University of the Pacific - Bachelor of Science, Applied Mathematics
Though my career and the subjects I offer to tutor are all math, science, and technology related, some would say most of my interests (besides movies, video games, and TV shows duh) would probably fall outside of that realm. I have many artistic passions including crocheting, knitting, drawing, painting, and making wigs. My business centers around that last one, so it’s less of a hobby and more of my profession, but it stemmed from my passion for hair and makeup. While it seems all of these are on the opposite side of some spectrum, I have a firm belief that all of these things firmly overlap with math and sciences and that my passion for one is the same as my passion for all. All of these subjects have applicable mathematical concepts, even the wigs. Ask me how! In terms of movies and shows, I might not be caught up on the latest and greatest but I am definitely willing to discuss most of these topics with anyone. For video games, I’m currently all about our new VR system which is a ton of fun and the way of the future.
