I graduated from UC Davis in June 2014 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biological Sciences, with an emphasis in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, as well as a Bachelor's of Arts degree in English, with an emphasis in Literature, Criticism, and Analysis. I have worked as a tutor for six years. During this time, I have had the most experience tutoring pre-algebra, algebra, advanced algebra, geometry, Spanish and college-level algebra. I think based on the amount I have tutored and my overall experience, my favorite subject to tutor is math because there is always one, and only one, right answer. Through effective communication and patience, the student is not only able to learn the mathematical process, but also the ability to think analytically. I would say that my tutoring philosophy is based on encouragement and always validating the opinions of the student before steering the student in the right direction. The student must be willing to learn and absorb information, as well as willing to work with me on a schedule that will match our goals and get the desired result. I am very enthusiastic about learning with these students and making sure that they are getting the most out of every session.
