I'm a college student with ADHD. Through my own personal academic struggles I've learned tips and tricks that I taught myself and acquired to help me retain information! I use patience and visual techniques to teach people Algebra.
I enjoy seeing the fruits of my labor. Knowing you are equipped to go back into class is what makes me feel great!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I start the process by talking to the child respectfully and eating them know this is a judgement free zone and mistakes are embraced! I then ask what was the best lesson or most memorable lesson they've had, to try and find out how the learn. Then I take them through homework or problems that they struggle with and go through each step slowly with them as well as provide tips and tricks to boost remembrance.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an Advanced Diploma from High School where my highest math course was college level AP A/B Calculus. I received a B in the class and a 3.05 gpa overall.
I'm currently at Old Dominion University where I took College Algebra and received a B in that class.
I've also worked for a Public School System in Virginia as a tutor and a non profit as a Teacher's Assistant!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
One of the children I taught, in a group of 10 classroom setting, lacked necessary knowledge in grammar. They wrote at a fifth grade level after being tested. They were going into the 9th grade... After a five days a week six week program they got up to writing on a 8th grade level! I was so proud of him for not only wanting to learn but, using the tips and tricks actively that I taught him!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make sure you are comfortable with them and they don't make you feel insecure about how you learn and the pace you Lea are at!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
"What is it that I need and don't understand?" And if that's everything then ask "I don't know whatI don't know I got lost at this part and I need assistance!". Tell me where you got stuck and I'll help you get back on track!
