...I also learned a lot about American History while working on a curriculum that focused on U.S. History from the time of the creation of the Statue of Liberty up to the 1990's. For three years. when my son was in elementary school I presented an "American Heritage in Song" program, which chronicled the music and history from early colonial times up through the jazz age.

...Trigonometry: just 4 questions on triangles and trigonometric functions (sine, cosine). What engenders a love of math? How can the door to its beautiful and fun aspects to be opened onto the numbers and their qualities, then remain open through algebra and beyond?

...Once I graduate with my BA, I plan to return to school to earn my credential in Math in order to begin my proper teaching experience. In my first 2 years working at the elementary school, my main focus was helping the students (mostly 4th and 5th grade) solely in Math. As a young individual, I'm able to relate to the students and use vocabulary that they are able to understand.

I majored in English at Tufts University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with Highest Thesis Honors, then proceeded to get my PhD in English from USC. Nearly the whole time, I supported myself tutoring everything from math to the SAT to college essays. I have worked at other tutoring companies, test prep companies, and colleges.
