EducationBA in Mathematics, 3.9 GPA (Simpson University).
Mathematics Teaching Credential (SF State).
ExperienceI have been tutoring and teaching middle, high school, and college students in math for the past 7 years. I have a mathematics degree, and I am currently a high school math teacher.
I was a math tutor at the Simpson University math lab for one year, and then promoted to the lead math tutor in the Academic Success center at Simpson University for one year. I was a teaching assistant at Simpson University, and lectured and provided private tutoring for advanced math classes. I have excelled in all levels of high school math, and can tutor up to calculus 3. I also specialize in teaching proof writing techniques. I volunteered at Enterprise high school in Redding CA, and did my student teaching at Berkeley high school.
I am currently a high school math teacher at Madison Park Academy in East Oakland. I have taught Algebra 1 Recovery, Geometry, Geometry Recovery, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus (Math Analysis). Additionally, I am the math department teacher leader at my site. My experience as a teacher makes me an excellent tutor because I am up to date on any curricular shifts (Common Core), and I can understand what teachers want when they create assignments.
As you can see, a majority of my life revolves around math and teaching the subject. I love math because it is a perfectly logical system in which everything "works." It is the best combination of complex and simple that creates an elegant art form to me.
I teach all my students how to have a "growth mindset" in which the know that their brain literally grows when they make mistakes. I am an encouraging and patient math teacher. I know that sometimes math can be difficult wall to overcome, but I know how to get students to success.
HobbiesMy main hobbies include anything athletic or outdoorsy. I enjoy most sports, especially basketball -- I coached a JV girls basketball team for a season. I also love hiking, biking, kayaking, and other outdoors activities.
