Mathematics is the teaching of perseverance to turn dreams into realities. My journey into the education field began with tutoring at the University level at Kent State University, which also included projects for the Mathematical Sciences and Education department offices (2012-2014). After graduating from Kent State University, I taught for Akron Public Schools at the Akron Alternative Academy, North High School, and Akron Juvenile Detention Center (2014-2016). At that time I had accepted an opportunity to work in a school that has grown my perception of teaching into a more arts-infused approach to appeal to the numerous learning styles, and this is where I have used my creative nature to develop a themed algebra video series and several scenario projects. I tested the waters with online tutoring in February of 2018 with varsity tutors. This experiment quickly evolved into over 500 sessions completed across multiple online platforms and also presented an opportunity to develop curriculum for test preparation which is a project that has inspired me to pursue a masters program in educational technology specializing in instructional design. It is an honor to be involved in the realizations of success that expand far beyond the classroom walls and I look forward to continuing to develop success stories.
