"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."

" That was not without it's challenges initially, however. Due to my weak academic background from high school, I spent my first year and summer at school catching up to the typical physics program, and had to spend extra time learning the advanced mathematical techniques needed to succeed in the program. Towards the end of my four years, I had a chance to explore other areas I was interested in, such as theater design, music theory, and fencing. When I finished my BA program, I tried my hand at research. I spent a year working on a project with Fermilab working on locating the Higgs boson." ...

"At Northwestern, I was a Gateway Science Workshop facilitator in Calculus, leading other undergraduates in a small-group setting through worksheets in order to solidify their grasp of difficult Calculus concepts. My students in this program wrote rave reviews to my director, who personally congratulated me on my diligence and helpfulness. All of my students did very well in their Calculus classes, and some even became fellow facilitators. Based on the reviews, the director of the program promoted me to be a Senior Facilitator of the program, leading the Calculus section." ...

" I am a very logical and rational person, and I believe that is reflected in how I teach my students. I do my best to have students understand concepts rather than just memorizing them. Although learning process may be more difficult, problems will become much easier in the long run. I try not to force students into doing something but rather, encourage them."

" After graduating with distinction from the University of Virginia in 2008, I worked as the special assistant for the science advisor at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. I then joined Teach For America, teaching Biology, Chemistry, and Earth Science at a high school in Brooklyn, New York for two years. After Teach For America, I thought my teaching days might be over as I enrolled at the University of Chicago's Medical Scientist Training Program as an M.D./Ph.D."

" That means I know calculus inside and out, and I especially what it means in real world terms. Additionally, I've worked with students from high school through college on calculus, physics, and introductory economics, and have developed an appreciation for different styles of learning. Math is the language the universe speaks, and I'm very excited to learn about that as a physicist. As a tutor, I hope I can share some of that enthusiasm with you.."
