"I graduated as valedictorian and moved to Santa Barbara, California to study aquatic biology at UCSB, where I graduated with honors in aquatic zoology.

" I mainly helped students with math, but also helped with other subjects like English and Chemistry. Also, I have always been helpful to friends and family in need of help understanding math. I understand the difficulties one might face with math and try to think about why a certain person might struggle. The best way to learn math is to completely understand it."

Therefore, I understand both sides of the equation, and I strive to reach that wonderful moment where they feel as if they 'get it' and feel good about themselves with confidence in their abilities in a particular subject. To me, that is the greatest reward of teaching.."

"My favorite age groups to tutor range from elementary school to junior high school. I believe tutoring is mostly about building a relationship with my students. When I was younger, I was blessed with a mentor who taught me so many of the ethics, morals, and philosophies that I know today. He also taught me about the importance of learning and education."

"Discovering a love of sharing the joy of learning with students, I added some classes from the Curry School of Education to my course load. I took classes on technology in the classroom, curriculum development, and teaching theory among others and used the skills I learned here to teach in summer and Saturday enrichment programs. I recently moved to Los Angeles and found myself missing the interaction I had with the students I knew while attending UVA, and I am so excited to meet my future pupils! Nothing can beat sharing the joy of learning (especially learning something new for the first time) with someone else. My favorite subjects to ...

" My tutoring style is very student-based, where I pay close attention to what concepts they are most struggling with and break down complex ideas into more manageable chunks. Also, I believe the SAT tests more critical reading than any other skill, and Iencourage students to be very detail-oriented about what the question is actually asking. Through tutoring at Chapman, I am used to students coming to me because they are having trouble with a subject, or just because they want to stay on track and excel. Through my experience teaching violin, I am comfortable with students of all ages.." ...

My teaching style is mostly inquiry based (meaning I like to help students figure out the answers themselves by asking them questions, but it can vary depending on the subject.
