David

My background is as an exercise science major at The University of Texas at Austin. I also took many classes that counted as prerequisites for physical therapy school. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring. In my mind, what makes a good tutor is someone who can listen to and interact well with the student. A good tutor is also interested in the subject material, as well as making the subject material meaningful to the student. It shows when a tutor is motivated to help a student learn—if the tutor isn't motivated, the student won't be motivated. In a tutoring session, a student should feel open to ask questions and express concerns. I feel that I have succeeded as a tutor when a student asks questions not just about the course material, but beyond the course material. That means I have sparked a curiosity for learning.

Outside of academics, I enjoy sports, specifically triathlon. I competed on UT's club triathlon team for four years, and I absolutely enjoyed it. I believe the hard work, dedication, teamwork, and drive necessary to succeed in sport carries over to academics. In addition to triathlon, I enjoy pretty much any outdoor activity—hiking, rock climbing, camping, etc.
