I enjoy developing creative ways to make sure these mistakes become a thing of the past. I would identify myself as a nerdy jock.

" In short, I believe in the modern-day revival of the Renaissance man. When it comes to teaching and tutoring, I love that light bulb moment we get when something finally starts to make sense. I'm addicted to it. I love getting that feeling when I learn something new and I love spreading that feeling to others. I am encouraging and patient with my students and have a knack for making seemingly senseless problems feel relevant and practical. Most importantly, I believe in actually teaching students how to approach and solve problems as opposed to simply doing it for them." ...

"While I love teaching and tutoring, I am a research scientist at the core with plans to continue graduate school in neuroscience after spending several years working in the biochemistry industry.

" I have tutored different levels ranging from highschool (all subjects) through College level (mainly math, physics, and biology) and have also helped people prepare for the ACT and ASVAB. I have seen many of my students improve and feel that it is all about finding how the course of study relates to you. As my mentor for my Interior Design program told me, "I don't understand it unless I can clearly see how I can use it". I truly agree with this statement. I feel like if you do not see how the information will be used in your life, you can develop a mental block against it." ...
