I am a graduate of Cornell University. I graduated Cum Laude with my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a focus on structural engineering. I am now in the process of applying to graduate schools to continue working towards my Master of Engineering in Structural Engineering. While at Cornell, I tutored Calculus 2 and 3 to freshman engineering students, as well as taught a supplementary course in Calculus 2 for engineers. These supplementary courses were designed for older students to give mini lectures and practice problem sets to students who were struggling in a course, the idea being that older students who have already taken the class may have a better sense of what helped them learn the material than a graduate TA or professor. I mainly tutor Math and Physics, and within these my favorite topics to teach are Newton Mechanics, Algebra, Calculus 1 and 2, Trigonometry and Differential Equations. I do my best to approach challenging topics in a variety of ways until we can find the method that best enables the student to understand the material. In my experience, a concept that made no sense the first time it was taught can become clear if just looked at in a different way. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, soccer, attending theater, knitting, and traveling whenever possible. I've had the great opportunity to spend a year living in Spain and exploring Europe, and I am passionate about continuing to travel and explore other cultures.
