"Memorizing facts and formulas only gets one so far, whereas it is the learned ability to solve any unique problem that enables a student to excel. I not only teach course material, but do so in a way that develops a student's ability to rely only on the fundamentals and logic of the subject matter to work through any difficult problems they may face. I can empathize with this because as a Senior Biochemistry major at Georgia Tech, problem solving is essential to my success. I am very good at discerning where and why students struggle, simplifying and communicating complex ideas, and connecting with people on a personal level.." ...

As soon as the students are able to go past that initial mental block, they are on the way to success.

" Before then, I took it for granted that I was a "smart kid." I was determined to not let that class defeat me, so I took it again (this time the Honors version), got an A, and enjoyed the challenge so much that I ended up majoring in an applied mathematics degree (Actuarial Science). After five years working in the actuarial profession, I've moved toward teaching because I enjoy interacting with people more and helping them achieve their goals (and enjoy themselves along the way!) My teaching style is to ask questions that gently push students to see ways they can solve problems on their own. I'm also interested not just in teaching ...
