Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I'm a UC Davis student with an intended major of Mathematics with an emphasis in education, and a minor in Music Performance, and I have a passion for both learning and teaching math. I graduated Folsom High School with a 4.00 UC&CSU GPA, where I took two years of calculus and one year of physics, and was heavily involved with the music program. I have spent Hundreds of hours tutoring in all levels of mathematics.

Math has always come natural to me, and from an early age I enjoyed helping and teaching my peers. That joy grew as I advanced through middle school, and in High School I was hired by my school's Peer Tutoring Program, where I could help students for a longer period of time, and really transform their relationship with math. As a tutor, I like to appeal to my students' logical thinking skills, and teach newer concepts in terms of things they already understand well. Rather than just teaching formulas and procedures, I try to give my students a real-life and intuitive understanding of the topic, which gives them a good foundation for later topics. This intuition helps my students understand new topics very quickly, and entirely on their own. In general, I strive to give my students a deep knowledge of math that will keep on teaching long after our time together is done.

I specialize in high school calculus, pre-calculus and physics, but I'm also very interested in teaching algebra, geometry, middle school math, as well as college calculus and linear algebra. I also offer SAT Prep and AP Calculus (AB&BC) Test prep. No matter what I'm teaching, though, I always let my passion for teaching shine. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
