I have a B.S. in Biological Sciences from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. I hope to matriculate into a medical program next year. In college, I tutored General Physics, Calculus, Biology, and Chemistry at the office of student educational services.

I have had the opportunity to teach people of ages ranging from 16 to 48 with different goals, aspirations, and ambitions. Each person has had special qualities and unique difficulties in his or her study skills in different subjects. Hence, I ensured that I approached each student differently with the best possible method that would help him or her best.

In my previous experiences, I have connected deeply with my tutees especially to understand the underlying course of their difficulties. My primary goal is to help people become great scientists and to excel in their classes.

In my free time, I love playing soccer and reading scientific journals.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I like to enable students to become passionate about what they are studying.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would try to understand the student's personal background of that subject, as well as the student's interests and passions. I also will wish to know the best learning style of that particular student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Understanding how the student learns best and what learning mechanism works best for him or her.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Correlate the specific subject or topic to something that the student can be familiar with and (most importantly) be excited about. Bringing in real-life examples would also be ideal!
