About this tutor

Middle and high school math teacher of 3 years. Before that I worked for local tutoring companies for 5 years. I love working one-on-one with students and breaking down difficult concepts into understandable steps. Obtained an advanced math degree from Texas A&M so can tutor all ages and subjects!

I love helping students gain confidence in math and challenge themselves! It's always my goal to help them see that math truly isn't a foreign language! It can be fun and even easy when it is broken down and explained in the right way.
