#### Experience

I have over 9 years of tutoring experience and 2 years of teaching experience!!While an undergraduate student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), I spent the majority of my time tutoring my peers. During my sophomore years and junior years, I tutored for the Freshman Engineering department for two different programming courses (C and MATLAB). As a senior, I began tutoring for various mathematics classes ranging from lower-level Algebra to upper-level Calculus and Differential Equations. During my time as a graduate student, I tutored both mathematics and physics courses. Overall, I have spent 5 years employed by the university as a student tutor for math, physics, and programing courses.

In addition to working for the university as a tutor, I have also worked privately. I began work as a private tutor while in high school when I began tutoring 7th grade math. I have continued working with high school level mathematics while tutoring my younger sisters and their friends as they have progressed through their education. Within the past seven years, I have also privately tutored several different students enrolled at ERAU, University of Central Florida, and several different community colleges. Privately, I have tutored the following subjects: Algebra I and II, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I and II, and Algebra-based Physics.

As for my teaching experience, I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) for the ERAU Mathematics Department while I worked to obtain my master’s degree. As a GTA, I taught mathematics courses for students enrolled in Beginning and Intermediate Algebra. I was responsible for coordinating lesson plans, administering self-made tests and quizzes, and holding office hours each week. I also responded to student tutoring needs, and provided supplemental tutoring. I served as a GTA for four semesters (Fall 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2011, and Spring 2012) and had a high level of success.

Post-graduation, I began working for Florida State University (FSU) as a tutor for their Athletics Department. While employed with FSU, I developed a strong ability to both mentor and teach student-athletes on a one-on-one basis. As I worked with each student, I determined his/her specific needs and geared my instruction towards the techniques which would foster the best environment. I succeeded in improving each of my student’s grades and helped them to develop a better understanding of their coursework. I also gained a sense of how to work with students from different educational backgrounds and time constraints, i.e. students that traveled every week for team competition. I have now worked for FSU for a year and have tutored the following subjects: Algebra I and II, Calculus I – III, Practical Finite Math I and II, Business Calculus, Physics I and II (Algebra and Calculus based), Pre-Calculus, and Computer Programming. I also obtained my CRLA Training Certification in November 2012.

As for my testing, I obtained the highest PSAT score in mathematics at my high school in both 10th and 11th grade. On my SATs, I earned a 760 in math and on my GREs, I earned a 750 in math. Also, while enrolled in AP Calculus in High School, I earned a 4 on the AP exam.

While in school (undergraduate and graduate), I enrolled in the following courses: Calculus and Analytical Geometry II (grade: A), Calculus and Analytic Geometry III (grade: A), Differential Equations and Matrix Methods (grade: A), Mathematical Methods for Engineering and Physics I (grade: B), Probability and Statistics (grade: A), Boundary Value Problems (grade: A), and College Math for Aviation (grade: A).

#### Hobbies

I feel that I have the passion to teach and educate that you are looking for. I love seeing students succeed in both the classroom and outside lives. I once had a student, while working as a Teaching Assistant, who struggled with the material and would come to see me almost daily during my office hours. His grades improved ever-so-slightly throughout the semester and when it came time for the final test, he finally earned an A. Nothing can compare to the look on his face when I gave him back his test; it was truly awe inspiring. It is the little moments like that one that drive me to inspire and teach and do more for the student.I truly feel that I was put on this Earth to study and teach math and to develop those skills in other people. I love to learn just as much as I love to teach so much so that I occasionally Skype with my graduate math professor to learn other forms of math that I had not studied while at school. He sends me notes, teaches me different concepts, and assigns me homework and tests. I do this all voluntarily because I want to study the subject and learn as much as possibly can!

As for my hobbies, I like to do just about anything. I love being outside hiking with my husband, running with my dog, or even just to feel the warmth of the sun. I grew up in New Jersey and so I absolutely love being in the warm weather down here in Florida. I enjoy playing sports; hockey and swimming are my favorites! While in college, I obtained my Private Pilot’s license, and although I haven’t flown in a while, I do love being up in the skies. I also enjoy SCUBA diving, cooking (baking mostly!!), and watching movies. My husband and I are BIG movie fanatics and enjoy watching as many as we can during our free time.
