I graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2014 and have been working a variety of jobs from helping out at local hospitals to tutoring and being a research assistant. So far, I have enjoyed tutoring the most because I love seeing students' aha moments. My interest in tutoring begins from my time as a student. I loved to tackle tough problems especially in my math and physics class and was also intensely curious about problem solving in general. My own methods relied heavily on intuition. which was quite irritating as I like to know exactly how things work. Over time, I realized that this intuition was more than luck. In fact, it was a working knowledge of ideas and concepts on a particular topic acquired through hundreds of hours of prior preparation combined with a particular sense of translating a problem into terms I could understand. This understanding reflects in my own teaching style. I like to use discussion to first elicit a student's understanding of the subject. Then, with structured guidance through problems I further develop the student's understanding so that they can see the big picture, including strengths, weaknesses, and implications of a particular concept. These naturally build into developing critical thinking skills. While I currently tutor a wide array of subjects, I am most interested in tutoring Math (geometry, algebra 1/2/prealgebra, trigonometry), Physics 1 and 2, General Chemistry (Honors, AP, or college level), and the MCAT Foundations of Physical Science and Critical Analysis and Reasoning sections.
