## About

Currently, I am an entering college freshman majoring in Mathematics at College of DuPage. In the past, I have taken many math classes including pre algebra, numerous years of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, advanced calculus, and advanced statistics. I've had tutoring experience with a variety of students from elementary school aged kids to seniors in high school. Currently, I work at an after school daycare for the a Park District, therefore I am up to date with all the current curriculum changes involving math. I love helping students have a clear understanding of different mathematic concepts by helping with homework and going over practice and review sheets. I am also super flexible so I can adjust to whatever times works best for you!

I have always been enthusiastic to help people learn new things everyday. I love hearing that "oh" moment. The "oh" moment is when someone finally understands a concept that he or she has not been able to grasp for while. I love seeing the people i work with improve over the course of my time with them.

## Frequently asked questions

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Although I am a college freshman, I have already had a lot of experience with not only the subject, but also with the actual tutoring process. During high school, my school had a place to go for students to get math help from their peers. I was one of the peer math tutors there for a year. It taught me a lot about how to tutor probably and how to re word things so the studnet understands. Moreover, math has always been a key interest of mine. I know algebra like the back of my hand and I love being able to help other people acheive in the subject.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Normally I charge 20 to 25 dollars per hour. The farther a client would like me to travel for a lesson, the more my rate is just because of the costs of travel. I am always open for discussing, though, so just let me know!

### How did you get started teaching?

In one of the previous answered, I said that I had started tutoring students in a peer math tutor center in high school. Recently, I have also started working at an after school daycare for elementary school aged children. This helped me learn more about what their curriculam is like.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a range of children from elementary school all the way to high school. My main focus is on middle school and high school algebra and trigonometry.

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I think students need to ask themselves why are they struggling. Many students struggle just because their teacher is going too fast at a pace for them or it may just be because they do not understand the homework and never ask questions. I would hope that students try to figure out the main problem without finding a tutor so they can try to resolve that issue.
