My background

I was homeschooled kindergarten through ninth grade and attended private school in tenth and eleventh grade.  After graduating at the age of 16, I took classes at a small Christian college while still living at home my senior year of high school before transferring to Union University where I began school as a double major Computer Science and Mathematics.  As a freshman, I realized my desire was to teach math, so I changed majors and graduated with a degree in education.

I started tutoring students in math when I was in college.  For four years, I loved teaching math to fourth graders up through Algebra II.  For the next five years, I learned what it’s like to be a stay-at-home mom caring for small children.  We had four additional children, all under the age of four, come through our home during that time through fostering with the state of Tennessee.  Now that I am homeschooling my two children in kindergarten and preschool, I have the joy of once again opening up our home to math students.  I currently tutor two students in basic math and pre-algebra and will soon be adding three additional pre-algebra students to my schedule.  I look forward to investing in each of their lives as we prove math can be understood by anyone.
