Understanding the process of how to solve a question is crucial when it comes to math and science classes. That's why I help my students to figure out answers on their own as opposed to telling them the answers. I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun.
I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies. I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university. After graduation, I went to Africa for six months. I spent three months in Tanzania teaching English and three months in Mozambique working as a research assistant at a health clinic. My international teaching experience helped me become a more creative teacher because I often had to improvise on the spot when my students didn't understand me, which happens quite a lot when you and your students don't speak the same language. Since returning from Africa, I've been working as a math, science, and English tutor for high school students. Forging meaningful relationships and watching my students succeed are what I like most about tutoring.
