Sophie: Math

Math Tutor

Background
Hello everyone! My name is Sophie and I have been a math teacher at Humboldt High School in St. Paul for 4 years. I graduated in 2016 from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Geo-Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. I then started graduate school at the UMN, and obtained my Masters of Education in Mathematics in 2019. I currently teach 8th and 9th grade Algebra, and I absolutely love learning and working with students on mathematics!

Free Time
In my free time, I love spending time outside with my dog Rydell, doing crafts and sewing, playing sports like softball and hockey, and going up north to Duluth. I also love trying new things and I am always open to new suggestions

Goals
I know there is often anxiety surrounding mathematics, so I approach learning math with a calm, kind, and non-judgemental demeanor. The goal is to help students gain confidence in math, learn strategies to problem-solve and organize materials, and eventually to help students be able to articulate and explain their thinking process while solving problems. I believe that all students are capable of doing and enjoying mathematics!
