My love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning and the desire to enhance my knowledge. As a future medical school student, I know that hard work and dedication are necessary to success. Over the last few years, I have been privileged to tutor lots of students from kindergarten level to college. The most satisfying part has been making the students realize their own potential and see their grades improve.
I tutor in many different subjects such as various levels of math, science, history, English, Test-taking strategies, and writing. I strongly believe that each student has his unique way of learning and it is my responsibility as their tutor to figure it out and prepare my lessons to fit their needs.
I am generally available to tutor in the evenings during the weekdays. Weekends are a bit more flexible. I can travel to students or set up an online session.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping make a difference in your studies!

How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I would gradually give the student more and more responsibilities and assignments to do on their own. This would eventually make them an independent learner.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
The main issue with reading comprehension is getting the main idea of the passage. I would have them focus more on the first and last paragraphs. In each paragraph, I would suggest that they focus more on the first and last sentence and write down the gist of the paragraph at the end of each paragraph. Besides this, giving them plenty of practice problems would be the way to improve their reading comprehension.
How do you evaluate a student's needs?
In my first session, I would work with the students to find their strengths and weaknesses. Once I have a good understanding of that, I would gauge the way they learn the best.
