## Profile

I've been a tutor and a teacher for the past three years. While studying at the University of Maryland, I tutored student athletes in math and sociology courses, where I found I was a patient tutor who is adept at teaching students the concepts behind math. I loved my time tutoring there, so after I graduated, I served for a year with City Year, an Americorps program. In this program, I was an assistant teacher in a fifth grade math classroom at a low performing school in the DC area. Every day I would run math stations and small math groups while also participating in classroom instruction, then run a behavior group in aftercare.

After City Year, I spent a few months tutoring at Mathnasium, before becoming a private in home tutor for individual students. I am most effective teaching math, and have a lot of experience with math courses up until Calculus. In high school, I got a 5 on my AP Calculus BC exam, a 4 on my AP Statistics exam, and an 1800 on my math SAT 2. I teach math by communicating the basic concepts, and trying to get students to derive and understand what they are doing, rather than by having them memorize a set of facts, because this way they can understand how to check if their answers are wrong, and remember how to do the problems when they don't remember the equations.
