Teaching since:
March 2007

I have over ten years of experience teaching College Algebra, English Composition, Business classes, and more. I have helped administer after school tutoring program in St. Louis. I have had success in helping students with whom others were unable to achieve improvement. I get excited when I see students learn to love learning (especially math).

I began attending college when I was 15 years. I scored high enough on my ACT/SAT exams (97th percentile) to earn a full tuition scholarship. I graduated from college with a 3.98 GPA. I also have two children who are full of energy. I know how to sustain the attention of young minds.
