About this tutor

EMAIL: [email protected]

I believe that every student can be successful in math class and building confidence through practice and analysis of misconceptions and mistakes is the key to student growth. Students must not shy away from mistakes, but instead view them as a learning opportunity, an opportunity for academic growth. The time I spent in the classroom teaching my students holds some of my dearest memories. I loved the opportunity to collaborate with the students to explore mathematical concepts, as well as, building those meaningful relationships with the students to ensure they felt seen and heard. I hope to continue to inspire, assist, and drive students to be the best math students that they can be as math tutors on this platform. Hope to see you soon!
