"My love of math began in middle school when I learned about integers. Learning about integers was fun because our class was playing Bingo using integers. I wanted to learn more concepts and the more I learned my passion grew as well.

"My love of math began in middle school when I learned about integers. Learning about integers was fun because our class was playing Bingo using integers. I wanted to learn more concepts and the more I learned my passion grew as well. That love of math influenced my decision to major and graduate with a B.S. in Mathematics from Georgia State University. I began volunteering as a tutor between 2006 and 2009 in mathematics from elementary to College Algebra and started again in 2012, the same year I joined WyzAnt. It gives me a great feeling seeing students "light up" after understanding the concept and gaining confidence. When solving math problems there's more than one way to come to a solution. My goal is helping people remove their fears in math. When I meet with students, having a connection is just as important as being competent on a subject matter. I show empathy and meet them where they are.

The best way to retain information that is taught is by practicing and using relatable illustrations to better understand the problems. Students will first try problems themselves so it helps to see where they are truly having problems, and boost their confidence at the same time. Patience, determination, and hard work generate positive results. If you want a tutor who is willing to go the extra mile for you then look no further. I greatly look forward to working with you.
