I am currently employed as a Mathematics teacher at Farmersville High School with 2 years experience teaching Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. I am Texas certified to teach mathematics grades 8-12, but can definitely tutor younger grades also.
I got my start working with kids in High School, skipping my lunch once a week to mentor local Elementary School students. The rewarding feeling I received when helping kids hooked me in. Since then, I have been tutoring and mentoring students for the last 12 years.
In May 2012, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Child Learning and Development and another Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Dallas with Latin Honors Magna Cum Laude. While in school, I conducted research for the Blackberry Project examining adolescent cell phone use.
I have had great success with the young adolescents I work with. Some children just need a good role model to talk to, while others are struggling with subject matter. A lot of the problem, in my experience, generally stems from either organization or motivation. I do not just want to tutor your child. I want to set them up to be successful in life. My forte is in mathematics, where the last assessment I took, I scored a perfect score on the Math SAT. Also, Science is a strong suit, as I took two years of college-level Physics in high school and several Biology courses throughout college. English is equally a strong subject for me, due to the literary nature of the many psychological reports I have completed. My father has been a high school mathematics teacher and business teacher, and my girlfriend is currently a 3rd grade elementary school teacher. I surround myself with people who love helping children. I am ready to help right away.
Thank you for your consideration thus far. Please let me know if you have any specific questions I can answer for you.
