I am a certified teacher with a passion for math, science and education. I have a bachelor's degree in materials science engineering from the University of Michigan and I tutor grades 3-College.

My teaching style is characterized by an engaging and interactive approach that fosters active participation and interest among students. Through hands-on activities, group problem-solving tasks, interactive technology tools, and class discussions, I create an interactive learning experience that aligns with my teaching objectives in mathematics. One memorable teaching moment involved organizing a "Mathematics Discovery Lab" where students worked in small groups to explore and solve real-world mathematical problems. They collaborated, applied critical thinking skills, and engaged in meaningful discussions to deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts and their practical applications. To accommodate diverse learning styles and abilities, I adapt my methods by incorporating visual aids, manipulatives, and differentiated instruction. I also prioritize creating a positive and inclusive learning environment by promoting collaboration, respect, and empathy among students, fostering a supportive atmosphere for mathematical exploration and learning.

I had the privilege of mentoring a student who faced the risk of getting involved in crime and not completing high school. As his math teacher, I took on the role of a supportive mentor, guiding him and instilling a sense of purpose and hope in his education. Through consistent encouragement and personalized attention, I witnessed his remarkable transformation from struggling with basic math skills to successfully passing algebra and ultimately graduating. This experience showed me the power of mentorship, personalized support, and fostering a belief in the potential of every student to overcome challenges and achieve academic success.

When I am not tutoring, you can find me in the garden experimenting with new sustainable and agroecological methods, going on a motorcycle ride, and playing my many instruments- such as dobro, guitar, tanpura, and harmonica.
