I have over 100 hours of tutoring experience with middle school and high school students in a wide range of subjects, from Pre-Algebra to Calculus BC. I also have public school teaching experience in the form of volunteer work. I ran my own freelance tutoring business out of Miami, Florida. I also have experience having worked at an official tutoring company in Coral Gables, Florida from 2018-2019. I'm now an undergraduate at the University of Florida and I'm seeking a Bachelor's in Mathematics and a Doctorate in Pharmacy.
Mathematics is my life's passion and I fully intend on making it my life's work. I have been studying it and practicing it on my own for years and I fully intend on continuing this journey in the hopes that I may educate myself through others in the process. It is too often the case that I see students who, be it through poor instruction at school or other externalities, feel unconfident in their own potential. I used to be one of these students. I went to a public school in Miami-Dade and it took me a lot of work and life challenges to discover and cultivate my natural talent. I want to share with my students my love for mathematics and show them that they're probably more capable than they ever before thought.
My teaching philosophy is centered around helping my students build an intuition and intrinsic understanding in the subjects I teach. I would like my students to be able to know where their equations and formulas come from and understand not just how and when to use them but why to use them. Necessary motivations, strong conceptual backbones, and clear learning expectations are, in my opinion, they key to success in any mathematics curriculum. My style is flexible to whatever my students needs happen to be. I can explain things however you need me to and I'm well versed in a variety of education tools for illustrating mathematical ideas, such as Desmos and Python programming.
I can tutor Statistics, Algebra, Calculus, and other high school level and early college level courses and below. I look forward to working with you in order to help you clear up your confusions and ace your courses!
