As a senior in high school, derivatives started winding their way into Lucinda’s dreams, and she never looked back. Lucinda attended Carleton College, where she majored in mathematics, concentrated in education, and graduated magna cum laude and phi beta kappa. After graduating, Lucinda went on to work as an AmeriCorps Math Scholar Coach at the Schuler Scholar Program in greater Chicago, where she completely redesigned the high school-based math curriculum at her site placement. Lucinda worked closely with other curriculum designers to develop interdisciplinary math and humanities programming, including a workshop incorporating time, infinity, and art. After two years in Chicago, Lucinda went on to teach English in Spain for a year. Lucinda is currently working as a Design Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning, a new graduate school of education that is a joint project between MIT and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation.
Lucinda has been tutoring for six years and has worked extensively with students in middle and high school. She has a wide range of experience with math in those grades, from AP Calculus BC to traditional 7th grade math. She has tutored both privately and as part of non-profit organizations, including the Beyond Sports Foundation in Chicago, which helps NCAA-bound athletes improve their academics through focused mentoring and tutoring.
In addition to being a huge math nerd, Lucinda loves hiking in the lovely outdoors surrounding Boston, playing frisbee, and cooking complicated new dishes.
