" I firmly believe that learning Latin is as valuable for one's development as a student and a scholar as Math or English Literature. I also understand that learning it, especially at the introductory levels, can occasionally be rather intimidating. I try to make myself as relaxed, fun, and seemingly approachable while I am teaching/tutoring as I can to lessen the intimidation factor of that crazy dead language we're learning. Although I grew up in Boston, I moved to Los Angeles six years ago to enroll at USC and (in large part due to the weather) have never left." ...

" As a teaching assistant in economics at Johns Hopkins University, I learned very quickly that it is not uncommon for students to feel anxiety over math, and I feel that anxiety is both unjustified and reparable. It is my belief that anyone can master the tools necessary to solve the puzzles that math problems present, if only they can approach the problem with confidence and flexibility. Imbuing students with that confidence is one of the greatest rewards of being a tutor, and I find enormous personal satisfaction in cultivating the critical thinking skills necessary to achieve it. In my free time, I enjoying cooking, dancing and puzzle ...

""But I'll never need to use this stuff in real life" is a refrain I'm not afraid to challenge. I hope to give students a new perspective on not just the importance, but the utility and beauty of math, no matter what field they plan to go into. Coming from a large family, I spent many a family gathering helping my younger cousins—from ages 5 to 22—with their math homework. I've worked closely with kids, teens, and college students in several capacities: as a Big Sister, an advisor to a youth Venturing Crew, a technical director for high-school theater productions, and a Resident Advisor (RA) to college freshmen. Originally from the ...
