I have been a curious student my whole life and I like to pass on not just knowledge, but my love of learning. I graduated High School with a GPA above 4.0 and immediately joined the US Navy in their Nuclear Propulsion program. I spent 4 years in the Navy learning about nuclear reactors and then decided to start a family when I got out. Since then I have finished my BS in Physics with a minor in Math graduating Cum Laude. I also was inducted into the physics honor society, Sigma Pi Sigma, having attained a GPA in Physics of over 3.0. I also have my MS in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum from Drexel University and I am certified to teach physics and chemistry in the state of Pennsylvania.
Having experienced so many different environments in my life, I have learned not only a large amount of information, but I have also learned how to translate that information so that others can understand it as well. Because we all learn differently, it is important to find a teacher that can modify her teaching style to fit what the student needs to learn. I believe with my experience and knowledge that I can help nearly any student gain proficiency in the subject they are currently struggling in and hope to help them gain confidence along the way. I believe learning should not be confined to school, it should be a part of our everyday lives.
In 2012 I started tutoring students in math and science and found I really enjoyed the challenge of stepping in and meeting students where they are. Soon after, I began homeschooling my own kids as my oldest entered kindergarten. In 2017 I began teaching online and found I really enjoyed planning courses and finding ways to make math and science more approachable and enjoyable for students. This has led me to create courses that more students can have access to high-quality, mastery-based math courses without breaking the bank.
