what makes her an awesome tutor

I'll work with you at your pace to make sure you grasp every concept. I have no problem going over concepts multiple times if it means it will help you succeed! I like to approach a math problem from multiple angles to help the student understand not only in one way, but in many ways so they have more mathematical tools at their disposal for future problems. The happiness I get from helping others is what motivates me to make sure you succeed. With my enthusiasm for mathematics, patience, friendly and positive attitude, I'll have you loving math (almost) as much as I do! I'll even throw in a few math puns here and there that'll really stick in your head and help you out during a quiz, test, or exam!

When you're not crunching numbers: I’m probably out at a rave or a concert. Music is one of my greatest passions, in combination with dancing. I feel alive and love dancing around to my favourite artists playing live music. If I’m not out raving and dancing, I’m probably still dancing around wherever I am, or painting, or just being a couch potato watching Netflix!

What's the best thing about you? I’m a free, open-minded spirit! I love to explore, try new things, make new friends, and just live life!

nerd alert! 

I use every little bit of free time I have to do my homework or assignments. You could say I have great time management skills. In high school, I would use my free period not to hang out with my friends, but do my math assignments. If I couldn’t figure out the solution to a question, I would hunt down my teacher at lunch or in his free period, or go to him early morning before classes started to get help! If I can’t solve a math problem, it’s very unlikely that I’ll think about anything except that until I have found the solution!
