Spent one full year teaching middle school math in California through City Year. ALL tutoring students improved by at least one grade level. Some students in my math class improved as many as 3 grade levels (couldn't multiply at beginning of the year, proficient at algebra by the end). Implemented Common Core so I have a base knowledge of the required skills. Graduated Fordham in top 10% of class, 3.804 GPA.

HobbiesI LOVE math and science. I also love art - I've painted with acrylics and oils, done some metalwork, dark room photography, charcoal drawings, and sculpture - my interests are in combining science and art, because there are so many connections. Love working with kids, I have a ton of experience with kids of all ages (newborn to college-aged - if they're still considered kids!). I'm also passionate about social justice issues and reforming education. And I recently have been exploring outdoor adventure activities & travel - Spent a lot of time hiking in California (including a 10 mile hike up to the top of Yosemite Falls!) and drove cross country over the summer.
