# Mrs Maria J. of Holt MI USA Tutor Profile

## Tutor Personal Information

Name: | Mrs Maria J. | |||

Gender: | Female | Age: | 31-40 |

Full-Time, 10 + Years of Experience

I believe that my mathematical knowledge, interpersonal and organizational abilities, as well as my experience teaching mathematics, would make me a good fit for this position.

I have a master's in mathematics with the specializations statistics, probabilities and systems reliability, and I am a doctoral candidate in field of mathematics, specialization: application mathematics. I have worked full time teaching physics and mathematics for eleven years for a high school in addition to working part time as a tutor preparing students to take college entrance exams in the areas of math and science. The many mathematics works that I have written, presented, and published has given me a great opportunity to communicate with and learn from other mathematics professionals. Mathematics, teaching, and learning are great passions of mine.

I have come to realize how important math skills factor into the success of my students in college and beyond. My goal is always to teach my students the ability to apply mathematics and physics beyond my classroom and into other classes and the real world.

Please contact me at your convenience. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Maria
