I am a graduate of Rutgers University where I attended School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree for Biological Sciences in May 2015. I do specialize in tutoring Sciences and Mathematics although I enjoy tutoring other subjects such as History and English. I am a patient and understanding person who absolutely loves to help people which is one of the reasons I love to tutor. I try to go above and beyond in helping my students to truly understand and connect with the subject I am helping them with. I believe it is very important for me to be able to relate with my students, therefore, I reach out to them on a personal level in such a way to understand why they are having difficulty in the subject and explain to them how I would try to overcome any mental block. I also try to understand the best way they learn so that I can approach them in a way that best suits their needs. Every student is different and everyone's needs are just as different. I make sure to understand my students to the best of my abilities and connect with them to be able to give them the academic support and help that they need.

Q & A

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

I would get to know the student and see what they need help with. I would try to understand what they think they are not understanding and see what their perspective is on the subject.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I believe students need reassurance in their skills. I always try to remind them of that. Once they think they can, they will. I also give them tips and tools on what they can do to increase their knowledge on the subject. I try to cater to a student's specific learning needs.
