Tutor Information


I am a National Tutoring Association (NTA) professional advanced level certified tutor, and a Purdue University graduate, with a degree in Business Management and Information Systems. I have about 19 years of mentoring and tutoring experience combined. Over the last 9 years, I have been primarily focused on tutoring in middle and high school level mathematics both as a volunteer and as a private tutor. During that timespan, I have tutored over 160 students on a 1-on-1 basis across the US and Canada, both in-person and online, recording over 2000 hours. I approach tutoring and mentoring with patience, understanding that each student learns in a different way and at a different pace. I like to ensure that when I'm helping my students, that they're seeing the connection and relationship between each concept to what they're being taught in school, so that they become more accustomed to forming patterns and drawing meaning to what they learn. This is important in building motivation and confidence. Simultaneously, I guide students to become effective problem solvers, critical thinkers, and independent learners.
