...I absolutely love my job teaching and working with young people. I understand that math is not everyone's favorite subject as it was not always mine throughout high school. However, once I started in Calculus classes at Northwestern, I found that I really enjoyed math.

...I want to reach a deeper understanding of the material through enthusiastic investigation and practice. My philosophy is that a genuine understanding is key. When we are absorbing information to regurgitate it on an exam, we are only temporarily beating the system.

...I enjoy talking to a student about what they have read, finding a new book for them to discover and helping students connect their everyday life to what they have learned in school. I have taught different levels of elementary and middle school. This has made me aware of the struggles students face when reading, writing and learning the foundations of math.

...I have worked with many students who have difficulty memorizing unit circle in degrees, and radians with their values. Some of the topics I have worked with are converting the angles from radians to degrees & degree to radians, graphing trigonometry functions, applying properties & identities, law of Cos and law of sin. Also I have worked on many more topics that come along in trigonometry.
