ExperienceUpdate: I am now a full time mathematics teacher.
I graduated from a magnet high school in Richmond Virginia. When I was in high school I finished my school's highest level of math when I was in my junior year (AP Calculus). In my senior year I took math classes at a local college where I did math with people twice my age. I graduated from high school with a 4.25 gpa and I was accepted to the University of Richmond with full tuition paid.
I was requested to tutor inside a local school system when I entered college and I have been doing it ever since. In the past 6 years I have tutored HUNDREDS of students..mostly in middle and highschool, yet I am capable of tutoring math from Kindergarten through Calculus. I specialize in high school mathematics, especially Geometry.
I never give up on my students even when their teachers do because I believe every child is capable of learning and every child is unique. I have gotten students to pass SOL tests when they have only been to 9 classes the entire school year. I teach my students different techniques to master math. There are many methods to solve problems and I teach my students multiple ways in order for them to decide which way works best for them.
I know math is a subject that scares many students but I aim for my students to not only understand what they are doing but to love what they are doing. There is nothing better, than to see a child grasp a topic that they struggled with...their eyes light up.
My name is Kandace and I am a native of Richmond. I transferred from the University of Richmond and I am a super super.....senior. I am a volunteer EMT-B and I work as a mathematics tutor (weird combo...I know).....Oh yeah I am also an artist. I love to paint and make dream catchers and dream catcher earrings (oh yeah I am native american). I also love the theater, especially "Wicked" (I wear a Wicked jacket all the time.) Oh I almost forgot my little buddy...I have a 1 year old spoiled rotten maltese named Halo. I am a sucker for dogs. I swear there isn't a dog that I don't like. I am a member at a local non-demoninational Christian church. I am working on 2 degrees which consist of 3 majors and 1 minor (that is why I have so many supers with the senior.) My main goal is to get into Medical school. I want to be an OBGYN.
