I received a B.A. in applied math from Rice University in 2015. I taught high school math in Houston as part of the Teach For America program for two years after graduating college. I taught Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus AB. The scores of my Pre-Calculus students were consistently among the highest in the district.
Before teaching, I had tutored for three years in college (all except my freshman year) as a volunteer tutor for underclassmen math courses and as a job tutoring high-school students.
I am currently working as a data analyst at a hospital in Boston.
I have always loved math, and I especially enjoy helping people understand math. I enjoy tutoring because of the specialized instruction I can give students and because of the relationship I can build with students. I aim to help students deeply understand why the material they are learning makes sense. When tutoring, I try to have the student talking and explaining things more than I am in order to make sure they truly understand.
I have scored a 5 on the AP Calc BC test and a 36 on the ACT math section (the highest score). While I have not taken the SAT or GRE, I have taken practice tests and I am confident in my ability to tutor the math sections of each of these tests.
Math courses I have taken: AP Calculus BC, multi variable calculus/calc III, differential equations, linear algebra, numerical analysis, partial differential equations, real analysis, number theory, probability and statistics, statistical inference.
