I have always known I have a passion for teaching, and throughout my math education experience I have sought out opportunities for tutoring and teaching. From my Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from the University of Minnesota, I taught as an undergraduate learning assistant as well as a tutor, mostly Calculus and Precalculus. Then, before I got started on my Master's degree from the University of Minnesota Duluth, I volunteered to tutor for a community center to help people get GEDs. And finally as I am working on finishing my Master's degree, I taught for two years as a teaching assistant for Differential Equations, Finite Math, and Calculus I and II. I would say the subjects I enjoy teaching most would be Calculus I and II since I've had the most experience teaching it, and I've seen some interesting problems and applications. Learning about math has always been enjoyable for me, and I think I started tutoring to share in that. But, as I've had more experience, I think the part I really try for now is the moment when students who are having trouble unlock the concept. I believe everyone has their own learning style, and by presenting the problem in new ways and making new connections, everyone can achieve their learning goals in math. Aside from tutoring and studying, I also enjoy traveling, exploring different foods and cultures, and playing video and tabletop roleplaying games.
