I am a former high school Math teacher. I taught math for 6 years, primarily Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Teaching was not what I had hoped and dreamed that it would be. I felt like administration put too much focus on grades and standardized test scores, as opposed to ensuring that students were truly learning the content. So I quit, and decided to start private tutoring. I enjoy tutoring one on one with students, because I can really give them the instruction that they need without the distractions of the classroom. On my blog, Pastries, Pumps and Pi, I share my love of math. I also want my audience to experience my adventures in food, fashion and more!
