#### Education

Brevard College - BA, Math Education , Cal State Fullerton - Master's, Mathematics#### Experience

My style of tutoring is based upon the idea that knowledge of why somethings occurs is more useful than the knowledge that it occurs. More specifically, as a math tutor, I refrain from encouraging my students to mindlessly memorize facts and equations unless it is completely necessary. Instead, I make sure that they know why the answer follows from the problem. From my experience, teaching students to grasp the underlying processes and concepts has always resulted in better problem solving abilities. I have a variety of tutoring experiences that span across subjects, such as algebra two, geometry, statistics, and history. I have tutored students from middle school to their senior years of college. In eighth grade, as part of my participation in the National Honor Society, I was a tutor. Shortly after, I moved on to become the head math tutor at the Center for Academic Enrichment. After obtaining my bachelor's in math from Brevard College, I earned a teaching license from North Carolina State. In order to do so, I did student teaching at an early college in Buncombe County. My focus, in learning and in teaching, has always been math. I love math and want to make it more fun and exciting than it is typically portrayed. My teaching philosophy requires a certain level of patience. Therefore, I will not give up on my students.#### Hobbies
