Bio

I grew up in Dallas, TX not knowing what I wanted to do for a career. Only in college did I realize that I felt most successful and confident when working with students. For me, teaching is also an opportunity to be a mobilizer and organizer for positive social change. I look forward to empowering my students to participate in the decision making processes that affect them most!

Tutoring style

As a tutor, I apply my classroom experience to support personalized, research-based learning. I can’t wait to be a resource that can help you grow, not only in math but also as a learner!

My greatest strength as a tutor is presenting new or unfamiliar concepts in a way that makes sense and sticks in your mind. I pride myself on the balance I create between student and tutor. Rather than giving a one-way lecture, our sessions will be collaborative and dialogue-driven. Whenever possible, I also like to connect the math to its real-world applications.

Other than the math itself, I hope to help you build time management, self-study, and test-taking skills that apply to all subjects. My focus is always how I can best support your needs. Please let me know when you have questions or concerns, and I can’t wait for us to get started!
