"My love for teaching began with my quest for a career that would be challenging, would allow me to creatively problem solve, and would enable me to have impact. I spent the first three years of my career teaching high school math at a charter school. During my third year, I served as the school's testing coordinator and intervention specialist. I coordinated high stakes testing for 700 students, created and implemented test preparation courses, and designed interventions for struggling students. I led my my students to a 97% pass rate on the standardized math exam. As the test coordinator, I led my school to a four percent increase in English standardized exam pass rates and a five percent increase in Math standardized exam pass rates. I am passionate about helping students believe in themselves and be successful in their studies! I absolutely loved teaching and enjoyed my time in the classroom. I decided, however, that I wanted to experience education from another angle. I now work at Pearson, a leading global learning company. I serve as a user experience researcher, which means that I help product teams create and test excellent and effective solutions for learners. In addition to my three years of teaching, I have four years of experience in mentoring/tutoring. My expertise is in elementary, middle, and high school math (Algebra 1 and Algebra 2). I particularly enjoy helping K-12 students prepare for their end-of-year standardized exams. Although most of my experience is with high schoolers, I am equally comfortable working with middle schoolers and elementary students. I am passionate about students being confident learners, believing in themselves, and mastering mathematics. I believe that mastery of mathematics equips a student with exceptional problem solving and critical thinking skills which are needed for all other subjects. I truly enjoy teaching and tutoring. In fact, it is one of my favorite things to do. Now that I am no longer a classroom teacher, I consider tutoring to be my favorite hobby! As a tutor, I request 12-hour cancellation notice, but I do offer makeup classes. I am happy to meet for tutoring at a convenient public location (coffee shop, library, etc.). I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
