About Hilary
Bio
I started teaching after graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in Pure Mathematics in 2005. I have been teaching high school math in Oakland, California for the past 8 years. After struggling through the first few years, during which I sometimes worried that I did more harm than good, I learned to embrace the challenge of this profession and have developed my own curriculum and teaching strategies that enable me to get to know my students very well and to challenge them to learn the most rigorous mathematics possible. It has been the greatest joy of my life to watch many of my students completely re-imagine their futures and become the first people in their families to attend college.
