"I like to draw, I like figuring out puzzles, I like to flip problems upside down (usually not literally) to solve them and explain to others how to reached the end. I am a recent UCSD graduate with a passion for learning and a drive to help others. Consequently, I’ve worked in education most of my life and aspire to become a medically/educationally transparent pediatrician. I feel all knowledge is accessible to anyone who wants it, so if you ask me, I’ll teach you anything I know how. If there’s ever a concept I come across that I don’t know, I’ll have fun working it through with you any way possible." ...

" As a result, I have learned how to identify students' learning styles, and most importantly, how to make unpleasant topics interesting -- or at least less unpleasant. Moreover, I have experienced the frustration and the struggles many students face in different subjects. In college as a music major, general math requirements were the bane of my existence. I had to retake classes and attend tutoring sessions myself. But eventually, I discovered how to tackle it, and down the road, chose to stick with the math and study economics. All of this has taught me how to be patient and positive toward my students, and taught me the importance of ...

"I have taught students of all ages and find it particularly rewarding to work with those who have learning challenges. In my free time, I love reading mysteries, horror novels, true crime books and general fiction. I also spend time furthering my knowledge of Forensic Science (I'm actually a trained CSI!).

"I believe that a good tutor can adapt to fit individual students’ learning styles (in fact, I even did some research on this!), and I enjoy coming up with both fun examples that make the material relevant to the student and memorable. I spend a lot of time in my lab, doing research with both typically developing and at-risk infants and children, to try and figure out how to find ways to identify risk factors for disorders such as Autism at an early age. Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking and cycling, reading (especially classic novels, current fiction, and classic science fiction), and going to see live music shows (mostly jazz and alternative ...

" I always try to find ways to make the subject matter easy to relate to. I don't believe there is such a thing as a difficult subject, I just believe that each student has strengths and weaknesses, and that it is best to focus on the strengths and use them to overcome the weaknesses. For example, some students struggle with word problems in math, but they enjoy drawing pictures. I like to teach students how to draw pictures to solve word problems."
