I received my Bachelor's degree in Biology at Long Island University- Brooklyn Campus in Brooklyn, NY. I am currently working on my BSN at Remington College School of Nursing in Orlando, FL in hopes of becoming a nurse midwife someday. I tutor a broad range of subjects: math, science, and english. But my preferred subject is math. I like the challenge that it brings me; It allows me to "think outside the box" and I love playing with numbers. Tutoring is something that I truly enjoy doing because I strongly believe that education is the key to major success and being able to help someone achieve is what makes it even more entertaining. In my previous experiences as a tutor, my main focus was to make sure that my student felt great about learning and understanding what I was trying to help them with. I want my students to be able to have fun while they learn because it makes everything clearer and the material then becomes simpler. When I am tutoring a student, no matter the age group, I try to teach and explain the material in a way that I would've wanted it done if I was in the student's shoe. I relate it to their daily lives and activities, in my opinion that helps the student understand better. In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, traveling, and reading. I have a love for dolls, therefore, I try to collect barbies and porcelain dolls.
