Economics Graduate student with a strong interest and passion for mathematics and even a stronger passion for teaching!

Methodology

I chose to cater my teaching methods towards my students. Each student has a different learning style and thus I make sure I change my teaching style in order to help each of my students succeed! One of the most important aspects of my teaching is my ability to take any subject matter, whether it's math, business, economics, finance or coding approachable and exciting. Sometimes school can be boring and as a fellow student, I completely understand! It is my job to break that cycle and make sure you not only learn but have fun doing it as well!

Background

I am an Economics Graduate Students well versed in mathematics including statistics, calculus and algebra. I not only have years of experience working with numbers but also years of teaching, mentoring and tutoring. I am just as passionate about teaching as I am about mathematics and I can guarantee I will make math more approachable and dare I say....FUN!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $ 15/h

Details

I completely understand and empathize with the high costs of education. My rates have been set by me but I am fully willing to negotiate based on circumstance. Money should never stop anyone from having access to quality education! Please contact me for rates and we will work out a rate that is beneficial for both sides!
