I am currently a graduate student at Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester conducting research in Biophysical Chemistry. I recently graduated in June 2017 from the University of California - Irvine with two Bachelor degrees. One was in Biomedical Engineering and the other was in Materials Science and Engineering. With two engineering degrees, I feel comfortable working with students in all realms of Math and Science.
I have experience in teaching students of all levels, in a variety of settings. Since my sophomore year of high school, I've worked as a Private Tutor. I have worked with students ranging from ages 10-16. I have private tutored students in Middle School Math and Science, AP English, AP Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus.
I am experienced in teaching a wide variety of subjects but, I love teaching Math classes the most. I love challenging the minds of my students and teaching them new ways to approach and solve problems. I believe that education is not about teaching students how to work through problems to do well on tests. It's about teaching them good study habits and helping them to develop a genuine love for learning.
The point of education is to teach students how to become critical thinkers so that they may apply their knowledge to solve real world problems. Learning should be exciting for students; it shouldn't feel like a chore. This passion and enjoyment of learning should be applied to every aspect of life for my students.
Outside of the time that I spend reading books, I enjoy spending time outdoors being active. I enjoy hiking, swimming, tennis, and running. I also have a deep interest in the arts. I love to sing, dance, and I look at the amazing photography of famous Photographers and of my good friends.
