I graduated Stephen F. Austin High School with a distinguished diploma and Cum Laude. Currently, I am studying at Texas A&M University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in History. While studying at Austin High School, I tutored students in a one to one setting for Honors Chemistry I. I also tutored between six and ten students in a group setting for the U.S. History AP exam. Following graduation, I have tutored students in a one to one setting via Skype or in person over the topics mentioned earlier. Professionally, I have tutored children below the age of 8 in basic mathematics and reading comprehension, while also serving as an assignment grader and answer key maker.
Overall, I enjoy teaching subjects ranging from the humanities and social sciences to fundamental math and science; however, I personally love to teach History and Writing due to their importance in the realm of personal and intellectual development. History is the story of how the world arrived at its present state, and it is filled with hard lessons and memories learned from those long past. Written language is one of mankind's greatest achievements, as it allows us to communicate with and pass on knowledge much farther than our voices can project, and much deeper than simple memory will allow. Taken together, these subjects give students the power to analyze and record their observations and stretch their creative talents. I believe that education, and specifically knowledge, is the first step towards removing ignorance and discord in our world, and I always try to impart that belief on my students through the Socratic Method; rather than giving the answer, I try to lead students in the right path, as the feeling of wonder when experiencing inspiration and discovery itself justifies the place of knowledge in personal development.
In my spare time, aside from intellectual growth, I like to play video games, read good books, and watch movies from all genres. Also, spending time with family and friends can never be overemphasized.
