I am passionate about math and am currently studying differential equations at University of Nevada, Reno. This is the second semester of my Freshman year. I am an Applied Mathematics Major and a Computer Science Minor. One day I hope to write software for learning machines and image classification. I have experience tutoring regular to advanced mathematics for learners ages 9 through 19. I take pride in my ability to be articulate, and in my spare time I listen to music and play Super Smash Bros. I also watch lots of cool Math videos on YouTube and will probably talk about/reference them a lot. Math has been this fun but demanding adventure in my life. I've had the fortune to have great teachers and generous sponsors. I hope to change peoples fundamental perceptions of math to something more meaningful, critical, and positive.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
A lot of the time when a student becomes discouraged, it is because the logic they are required to perform does not fit anywhere in their intuition, and they do not really have context for why it is important or useful. This is where I feel most math teachers fail in their instruction, and I try my best to help compensate. Often when these deficiencies are addressed, students find the more rigorous parts of math tedious at worst, and possibly enjoyable.
