#### Education

Truman State University - BA, Mathematics , Truman State University - MA, Education#### Experience

I am a certified mathematics teacher for 6th-12th grades in Missouri. I attended college at Truman State University for both my undergraduate work and my master's degree. My bachelor's is in Mathematics and I hold a Master of Arts in Education. I have taught in middle school and high school classrooms for three years in various mathematics classes. I have found that I enjoy teaching in general, but being able to work with students who are struggling in the subject is my greatest enjoyment. I believe that math should not cause anxiety and work with each individual to understand the concepts without fear. Math is often times an obstacle in a student's education and I work to remove that obstacle from their path. One of the best ways to break down the barriers in mathematics is to apply the concepts to real world scenarios, so that the student can see the practical application of the math. When math is a series of problems with no connection to the world, a student has a difficult time understanding the concepts. I strive to make my tutor sessions a hands-on environment, where the students are free to move about and learn. For example, when teaching ratios to younger students, I find that making Kool-Aid brings the concept into an application the student can grasp.#### Hobbies
