EducationUniversity of California, Berkeley - BA, Political Science , Loyola Marymount - MS, Special Education
ExperienceI received a bachelor's degree in political science from UC Berkley before getting my master's degree in special education. I initially wanted to work in law, but after having a change of heart, I decided to pursue my childhood love of mathematics. I am now in the process of enrolling in Fullerton College, where I will undergo a post-baccalaureate in physics before completing my Ph.D.Now that I have reunited with my passion, mathematics, I feel driven to share my knowledge and information with students seeking guidance and support. I especially love teaching algebra and geometry, as there is a wealth of resources available to help enliven these subjects and make them enjoyable to learn.Upon my graduation from Berkley, I joined a nonprofit educational group, where I taught special education for four years to middle school students. During this time, I helped build individual learning supports and structures to help students overcome their challenges. From this experience, I was able to learn many different teaching methods that helped me meet each student's goals and needs.As a tutor, I strive to tailor each lesson to meet my student's individual learning style. My goal is to help students strengthen their study habits, improve their test taking abilities, and find outlets to overcome classroom related stress and anxiety. Through practice and dedication, I hope for my students to be calm and confident when tackling a challenge.
HobbiesI enjoy playing tennis, doing yoga, watching Doctor Who, walking my dog, and going on road trips.
