I am a recent grad from Rutgers University. I got my Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering that taught me a lot of things. First of all, you cannot be good at everything. If you are, you are lucky, if you are not, you are like me. I work hard on things I am good at, but harder on things I am not. Sometimes, working hard is not enough. Working hard in the right direction with effective time management skills is what got me here.
In my school years, I tried running away from certain subjects only to find myself chasing them later. I always use to run away from Math, and then I took engineering with whole and soul of Math. This made me realize that if you find something difficult, don't run away from it, make it fun, interesting and give it time. That's exactly what I did and in no time I was as good at Math as any other Engineering courses.
Engineering courses were a lot about applications in real life and my lectures used to be so interesting because now I could begin to make sense of everything. That is when I realized the importance of using examples and scenarios to study and learn concepts. It have me a boost of confidence because now I could talk to educated professionals and sound like them. It was so cool.
Teaching has always been my passion. I love to teach. So far I have taught students at different levels of education, skill sets, areas of expertise and interest levels. I can say that I have done a pretty good job at motivating my students to become independent learner because learning is easy but it comes with a price if you are dependent. Everyone is capable of learning, they just need to know how to.
