what makes her an awesome tutor

Growing up I was never too keen on doing math, so I can totally relate to students and their negative attitudes towards math. It wasn’t until my senior year that I met the most awesome math teacher. She helped me realize the beauty of math and I went to university to study math. Ever since that first day of her math class, it has been a goal of mine to make sure that everyone around me loves math as much as I do!

Life Goal: Realistically, to work as a learning strategist, but I still have my childhood dream of being an astronaut. I would totally participate in a one-way trip to Mars.

Favourite Mathematical Weapon:  Calculus.. it's the most powerful weapon of thought. It is such a beautiful and powerful form of mathematics that helps explain real life and the physical.
