Tifin works to ensure high quality circles among GMC leaders and strong thinking among circle participants. She trains leaders in math circle methodology, and is working to help school teachers use this methodology in their classrooms. Tifin has taught mathematics in the US, Kazakhstan, Tunisia, Switzerland, and Brazil. She consulted in math programs around the world, in schools in Bangladesh, Switzerland, Italy, and Senegal, where she worked with teachers to help them teach mathematics in a way that challenges students to see mathematics as inspiring instead of intimidating. She developed curriculum for LearnZillion, an online educator support website, where she created engaging lessons that allow students to develop their own understanding of the concepts through creative thinking and problem solving. She worked for Project AERO, training international teachers from around the world in mathematics content and practice. In her spare time, Tifin enjoys traveling, long distance running, cycling, and hiking. She is a nomad and home is wherever she is at that moment.
