I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin, focusing on a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. I have a background in both Mathematics and other Natural Science fields and am both willing and comfortable teaching either of these subjects. Furthermore, I have studied and taken the SAT and MCAT, and would be happy to help others who want to take these tests.
My prior teaching experience includes mentoring in both group and one-on-one settings. While most of my teaching has been done with my students of similar age, I would be comfortable with younger students as well, having been an older sibling for most of my life. From personal experience from the point of view of both a teacher and a student, learning is not always a straightforward process. Teaching plans should be compatible with individual students, taking into account their goals, needs, and learning styles. For example, I personally like to incorporate secondary lines of reasoning. When learning words, I look at roots, when learning theorems, I study proofs, and when learning mechanisms, I examine comparable systems. In addition, I am a rather visual learner, and favor illustrations such as graphs, tables, and diagrams as learning tools.
Besides working as a tutor, I enjoy watching and playing sports, especially football, basketball, and soccer. I enjoy cooking and would like to improve both the quality of food I produce and the repertoire of dishes I can make. I have interests in other subjects, such as geography, history, and architecture. Various other hobbies include watching TV shows, walking around, listening to music, and playing video games.
