I am currently a third grade math/science/social studies teacher in Houston, Texas. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Elementary Education and am currently working on my Masters in Education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I have spent time teaching abroad and worked briefly with the Peace Corps as a Teacher Trainer in The Gambia in West Africa.
While I tutor a wide range of subjects, I love teaching math and believe all students can be successful in the subject, if the material is presented in a way they understand. It is important to remember that not everyone has the same learning style. Sometimes finding that 'right' way can be a challenge but the light-bulb moment at the end makes the challenge my favorite part of teaching.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, swimming in lakes, reading on pebble beaches, and just generally spending times outdoors.
