### Bio

For the last two years I have been a university mathematics tutor, leading lecture-like sessions and holding office hours for Calculus I and II and Linear Algebra. I have also worked as a private tutor, teaching pre-calculus and algebra II at the high school level. I struggled with mathematics when I was younger and have learned (and now teach!) effective methods to encourage students. The “aha” moments that I have seen within students are the moments that I now live for; it is my dream to keep seeing those moments for the rest of my life. (I hope to eventually become a mathematics professor!)

### Tutoring style

My goal is for my students to understand and find beauty within the material, rather than simply memorize it (as unfortunately some are encouraged to do). I work to break the material into various levels of understanding, find the area where the student feels most comfortable, and start from there. I try to express mathematics visually (in pictures/drawings) and to give the student a level of intuitive understanding between delving into formulaic problem-solving methods. Overall, I strive to make learning mathematics a fun and rewarding experience and show my students that it is not the cold and callous subject that some may perceive it to be.
