#### Hobbies

I'm incredibly passionate about education, and want to go to graduate school to obtain an MAT or an M.Ed in order to become a high school math (and hopefully English as well) teacher. I love working with kids of all ages (even college students like myself), and like to teach/tutor using inquiry-based learning. This method consists of asking questions to guide a student to the correct answer to ensure understanding and avoid simply "giving answers". I like to read, play guitar, or just relax with friends in my free time, and the 2 hrs a week I spend tutoring a 9th grader during the semester are 2 of my favorite hours of the week.#### Preferred Subjects

SAT math, ACT math, GRE math, Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus I, Praxis II (0061, 0063) Math, Writing, Logic, Abstract Algebra (group theory, ring theory), Introduction to Real Analysis
