I recently graduated Delaware State University in May 2014 with a degree in chemistry. I will be starting graduate school in August pursing a degree in forensics science. I've tutored at Delaware State University in Math and Chemistry, and I will continue to do so at Varsity Tutors! Although I have a degree in chemistry, my favorite subject to tutor is math. There are so many different methods to solving a math problem and getting the same answer. It is super easy for me to adapt and find a method best suited for the tutee, whether it is drawing pictures or using props.
My teaching style can be described as "relatability" (yes, I made that word up!). I strive to make learning the particular subject relatable to real world instances because, let's face it, no one wants to learn something that they think they'll never use again or something that won't help them in life. Using the client's interest and conveying it in the problem yields better results makes learning fun.
Outside of tutoring, I'm a culture freak. I love reading up on new cultures, listening to their music, and trying their foods. The world is so much bigger than the US and other cultures besides your own are so fascinating. I always have a book in my hand, and if time permitted, I can read about 3 books a month. My favorites are ghost stories/horror, mystery novels, and crime/detective novels.
