I am a Posse Scholar at the University of Virginia. Posse Scholars receive full-tuition scholarships for our leadership and academic merit. I am a leader and a great team player. I have tutored in the Day in the Life program at The University of Virginia, learning from other teachers and Professors. I believe a teacher should be motivating, kind, and respectful to his student. While not being a student at UVa, I tutor in Houston, as learning and teaching are some of my passions.
