I tutored mathematics for many years as I pursued my education, and I continue to tutor because I love it. I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics and statistics from UCSB and I tutor grades 6-College.
Instead of pulling information off of the textbook page, I prefer first to discuss ideas with students in a visual manner. From there we proceed to complete problem sets. Understanding the concepts are necessary for understanding the mechanics behind solving problems.
I helped an Indonesian classmate of mine pass a class. This was important for her because her student visa would have been entered a complicated situation if she did not pass.
My hobbies include playing the piano, hiking, meditation, traveling, spending time with loved ones and reading (mostly fiction these days)
