I am a current senior at Ohio University. My major is in adolescent to young adult mathematics education. I have experience teaching in both urban (Fort Hayes Arts and Academic School in Columbus, OH) and rural (Tri-County Career Center in Nelsonville, OH) cities. I also am set to spend the next school year co-teaching at Alexander City Schools in Albany, OH.
I entered Ohio University as an Civil Engineering student, so I have plenty of experience of real-world applications in higher mathematics. I decided to switch to education for mathematics, when I realized that a lot of students dislike mathematics as they do not see any real life use to the material. I want to be able to enrich students with an appreciation for the materials use in every day life.
Most of my time spent at these various schools has been in the role of a "co-teacher". My job in the classroom was usually to go to students individually and check their understanding. Because of this, I have a vast experience of sitting one-on-one with students, or even in small groups. During my time with these students I have expelled a lot time into the well being of students, as well. Because of my age and my diversified background, I feel like students feel more comfortable expressing their concerns with the material with me.
In High School, I took courses such as: College Prep Geometry, College Prep Algebra 1&2, College Prep Advanced Mathematics, College Prep Trigonometry, and Advanced Placement Calculus. I had a score of 29 on the ACT.
In my collegiate endeavors I have taken many mathematical courses, such as: Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1-4, Statistics, Probability, Discrete Mathematics, Applied Linear Algebra, History of Math, Number Theory, Abstract Algebra, Differential Equations, and more.
I have also taken multiple years of education courses at this point; so I am versed in the area of sharing my content knowledge. I am looking to make tutoring my full-time commitment, and am able to work with students' contacting, scheduling, understanding, etc. As mentioned, I have covered almost every form of mathematics necessary for tutoring; and am willing to expand my knowledge to meet your needs!
