Sarah "...I believe that the best way to make sure a student remembers a theorem or formula is to teach them how and why it works. Therefore, whenever it is both possible and practical, I like to walk students through demonstrations of proofs to deepen their understanding and their ability to apply the theorem or formula in question. My second most commonly tutored subject is English, particularly grammar. As a linguistics major, I have a nuanced understanding of how grammar works and, further, of how to conceptualize it and explain it in terms that a student will understand..."
