I have been tutoring high school test prep since receiving my Bachelor's degree from the University of West Georgia in 2010. I have always loved teaching math, and I pride myself on making it accessible to all students in my care.

I am first and foremost a cheerleader and coach to all my students, and I celebrate their successes as they continue to grow in their academic careers. I constantly add new methods to my teaching style, so that I can always have multiple ways to teach students the way they learn best. Above all, I find ways to connect what they are learning to who they are as an individual.

About five years ago, I had a 6th-grade student who struggled with word problems as a result of ADD. I decided to ask him a bit more about some of his interests in other subjects, and he told me about his love for mystery novels in his ELA classes. Taking this cue, I asked him to read different word problems he was getting in math class - and (at first) instead of solving them, identify key points (plot, action, etc.) that an ELA teacher would expect him to find. Using this as a starting point, I connected the problem-solving methods he was learning in math to the ELA concepts he identified. His confidence in solving word problems continued rising each week, and his parents thanked me for my patience and flexibility.
