Bio: I love math and I love to teach! I studied math and French at the University of Redlands and just graduated in April. I've had several teaching positions in the past and I enjoy helping my students and watching them progress and get better over time. I think everyone can be good at math and enjoy solving math problems as long as they have a good teacher and a passion for learning! Next year I will be traveling to Paris, France to teach English in French middle and high schools.
