Sunday after 1PM
EducationI'm currently a 26-year-old Junior finishing up a BS in Economics online at Penn State University.
I have taken Pre-Calc thru Differential Equations at the college level and passed with a B.
My profile picture is almost 10 years old, but I find it most fitting to my personality.
ExperienceI've successfully homeschooled a 14-year-old 8th grader in Pre Algebra/Early Algebra.
I love teaching kids, and building their confidence. Self-confidence in learning was my area of struggle, and I've overcome that. I love helping kids realize that they CAN do that tough math problem, or have that conversation in Spanish, or conquer that vocabulary list.
I've got a great background in Biology, as this was a previous major. I have an intense love for life and living things.
I just switched from a Physics major to an Econ major, so I can do that stuff pretty doggone well!
I've passed every college-level Spanish class I've taken (from beginner to advanced) with an A, and can carry on a decent conversation with a native Spanish speaker.
Why I want to teach:
Math used to be the bane of my existence. I HATED Math with a fiery burning passion because I just could not understand it. Naturally, I eventually made it a challenge to pass Calculus. I failed before I passed, but when I passed I passed with a B. That satisfaction inspired me. I now love Math...because I GET IT.
I want to help others reach that same level of satisfaction and accomplishment, or as I call it, the AHA! Moment.
HobbiesI'm a huge nerd. Learning about the world is my first and foremost favorite thing ever. I have sixteen food allergies so I cook at home a LOT and have gotten really good at it! I love reading and writing poetry, listening to music (a wide variety from country to punk to folk to soul) and singing it, gardening, and my freshwater fish tank. I also love to do yoga and meditate. Nature is one of my favorite things in the world, so hiking is pretty far up there in my hobbies. I like to bring my field guides with me and identify all the plants.
