Kim Le

Math Tutor – Saint Paul

Math Corps made me think how I could explain things differently if kids didn’t understand right away.

Kim Le, Math Corps tutor, American Indian Magnet School

Kim Le was looking for direction in her career. With a degree in math and a few years’ experience in retail management, she was curious about teaching, but realized she needed to build professional skills and earn money for graduate school. Math Corps provided her with relevant experience and was a perfect transition to teaching.

Kim served two years at American Indian Magnet School in St. Paul. At first, she was a bit tentative about serving middle school students, but ended up loving it. She enjoyed getting to know her students on a personal level, and they excelled with one-on-one attention.

Now a high school math teacher, Kim is grateful for her Math Corps experience. She regularly employs the skills she learned as a tutor.
