I would like to be your tutor! I am currently studying Psychology and Business at The University of Texas at Austin with plans to apply to dental school in the future. I was always more of an independent thinker during high school, and I would usually try to solve things myself. However, I struggled a lot when the time for my SAT came around--to the point where I actually ended up needing a tutor myself for the math portion! Nonetheless, I acknowledged the power of tutoring when I ended up surpassing my own expectations for the exam! I wish to spread the benefits of knowledge and confidence in younger students. My goal is to gain a better understanding of what it means to help others, as well as practice my communication skills. Thank you for choosing Varsity Tutors and I look forward to hearing from you!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I strongly believe in treating others as you would like to be treated! Therefore, helping students learn in ways that I myself would have liked to be taught is of utmost importance to me.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A typical first session will consist of introducing myself, my background, my credentials, and simply offering the student an opportunity to express their concerns, to which I would try my best to respond to appropriately.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I understand what it feels like to be stuck on a new problem, trust me. I will help guide you through the process by breaking it down, simplifying terminology, and presenting a clear solution.
