Bio description: I have two bachelor’s degrees, including a degree in mathematical statistics from the University of Illinois. I have lived and tutored in the U.S., Kazakhstan, and the Czech Republic to students of varying abilities and age groups. My experience tutoring has predominantly been in mathematics, including at the Sylvan Learning Center, to K-12 students. The subjects I have tutored include everything from elementary mathematics to Calculus II and SAT/ACT prep. I became interested in mathematics while I was in college. I came to love the problem-solving as well as the detail and precision involved. And I love teaching, watching students' progress and seeing their facial expressions when they understand a concept. I find that one of the more challenging aspects for students is understanding the concepts in mathematics. It is one thing to memorize equations and algorithms, and another to understand why they work and apply those math concepts to everyday situations. As such, I try to tutor in such a way that students can find enjoyment and meaning in the topics that they are learning. I also try to create positive environments for students so that they can build on their content knowledge of math and develop greater confidence in themselves.
