Bio

Growing up, I have always been curious about mathematics and statistics, whether sports, data, or number puzzles. I started my career in the engineering field, where I worked on numerous projects and collaborated with different communities. After leaving the engineering field, I had traveled to multiple countries and fell in love with teaching. My first teaching position was in Liberia, where I taught math and physics at a small, rural school. After moving back to the United States, I continued teaching at a private school, where I eventually became the math department head. I love to teach by example, which allows students to visualize a problem better.

Tutoring style

For tutoring, I love to assist students in exploring problems. Many students hate math and science, not because of the content, but because they don't see the use of the subject. However, when a student looks at a problem's application, they intuitively know some of the steps, which builds confidence when working through the rest of the problem. With that confidence, a student feels better and improves.
