I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree at Central Washington University majoring in Mathematics. I have 4 years of tutoring experience as well as 2 years acting in a substitute paraeducator role. My main specialty is with Math but, I have worked with students on learning how to understand/interpret literature as well learn strategies to employ when proofreading. I can also offer a more generalized support with other subjects. Much of my experience as a para was spent supporting students who were in an alternative classroom setting and needed just that bit more support to help them reach their goals. I shockingly enjoy tutoring in math the most, because I have extensive experience in it and have learned quite a few ways to impart different topics from helping a variety of students.
The reason I have taken to tutoring is because I have always found a great deal of enjoyment watching as the switch goes on in a students head when they finally grasp a concept. Watching students slowly grasp onto topics and build up their confidence is a wonderful thing to witness.
In terms of my general approach/philosophy to tutoring, I think that students should be treated as responsible for their learning and understood as equals in striving towards their educational goals.
When I have time to myself, I tend to enjoy playing video games and reading to help destress.

My main interests are reading and playing the odd video game. Though I do enjoy playing tabletop rpgs when I can find a group!
