I am a current senior at UC Davis, although I did my first two years of undergrad at Duke University in verdant North Carolina. Although I'm just about finished with my Bachelors degrees in Economics and Psychology, I will be spending an extra half-year here to get a minor in Biology. I tutored friends in high school on and off, and have been tutoring full-time at a tutoring agency In the past, I've taught a variety of subjects: writing, economics, math up to calculus, chemistry, psychology, SAT/ACT prep and others; however it would be safe to say I favor tutoring writing (for its ability to unleash the creativity in anyone), economics (the fusion of logic and reasoning with money-matters), and SAT prep (because who doesn't enjoy tearing apart the Collegeboard's tests and their patterns?). To me, the most crucial part of tutoring is new understanding. I absolutely relish the process of deconstructing an idea and reforming it in a way that clicks for my students, and trying new methods of explaining until a student can explain the concept back to me. But more importantly, tutoring should be fun for both of us, and I really enjoy making the teaching experience more casual and relatable.
