I am a student at Lehigh University pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Manufacturing Systems Engineering. I have previously tutored students from elementary school through high school. I have also volunteered as a Teacher's Aid, in a Special Education classroom, where I helped reinforce the lessons taught. My favorite subjects to tutor are Math and Science. I thoroughly enjoy the complexities of piecing information together in order to solve Math problems and their applications in Science. I love sharing this enjoyment with other students. While tutoring, I like to have the student tell me what they already know about the problem and then I explain the basic ideas involved. With this foundation, students can then try to set up and solve the problem. Other than academics, I enjoy sports, reading, and board games. My favorite sports are basketball, soccer, and rock climbing.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to go through problems and have the student solve them. I like to both work out the problem and then just provide guidance when the student gets to a point where s/he is stuck. I believe the best learning is through experience.
