## Profile

I am currently a math tutor at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, where I am a senior mathematics major with a music minor. At Concordia, I have been employed as a math tutor for the past two years, tutoring several mathematics courses including Calculus and an introductory-level math course. I grew my skills as a tutor through both of these experiences; tutoring Calculus allowed me to help students understand a subject I love, while tutoring the introductory math course was interesting in that I had never taken the class before, so I was learning the material alongside my students. The fact that I was able to do this and help my students succeed testifies to my flexibility as both a student and teacher.

In addition to my time tutoring at Concordia, I have had previous experience tutoring throughout my education, both formally and informally. I thoroughly enjoy helping people understand mathematics, so that they can answer the questions "how" and "why" something works rather than only memorizing the specific steps to a solution. While knowing how to solve a problem is important, I believe in learning the fundamentals of how math works so that, when confronted with an unfamiliar problem, students can break it down into familiar parts and derive a method of solution on their own.
