#### Education

California State University, Long Beach - Expected Degree- Bachelor of Science, Mathematics Education#### Experience

For four years I've been working as an Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) tutor. I'm also pursuing my degree in math education. Looking back, selecting the field of education as a career choice was never in the cards for me. What changed my direction was a trip to my high school to get some guidance from some of my former teachers. They pointed me in the direction of an AVID course. Following their advice, I headed for an AVID class. The classes were split into subjects, and there were certified tutors present who helped students to learn the material. It was during one of these tutorials that I noticed a group of students who didn't have a tutor. The reason given was that the previous tutor wasn't qualified to help these students. That was when a light went on for me. I soon discovered that I enjoyed lending a helping hand to students in understanding math problems. I quickly grasped that sometimes students are easily mistaken as not being able to comprehend the material. But in reality, it may be the tutor who isn't prepared and lacks the proper tools to teach. My strong connections with students as a tutor have inspired me to become not only an educator but a mentor as well. My students have become the teachers and have taught me what empathy is all about. Outside of tutoring, I also enjoy playing basketball, playing Call of Duty, talking about cars, binge eating, and watching movies.#### Hobbies
