Experienced Tutor Available For HS Students
Hello! My name is Michelle and I am a recent college graduate from Boston University back home in NJ. I spent the last year as a part of the AmeriCorps program serving as a math tutor at Great Oaks Legacy Charter High School in Newark, NJ. I absolutely love math and believe that many students have been discouraged from learning as a result of confusing teaching tactics, impatient teachers/parents, and overall the idea of math being too "nerdy" or difficult. My main goal is to challenge those misconceptions and allow students to find enjoyment in math as well as understand math's real-life application. More often than not, students typically ask, "when will I use math in the future," and typically hear nothing for an answer. The actual answer should be limitless and show them the beauty and mystique that surrounds mathematics, from its purest sense to the various applications of it. Overall, I love meeting new adults and kids, learning/teaching, and am a proud multilingual!
