I am a senior at Arizona State University in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, majoring in Anthropology and minoring in both Sustainability and Statistics. While my anthropology and sustainability courses focus on the cultural growth and changes of society, my statistic courses allow me to focus on the numerical side, providing to a comprehensive education and outlook. The integration of these fields gives me a greater understanding of society, globalization, and the learned versus psychological traits and behaviors that govern it. I am inspired to take my future into my own hands and develop a study where I can use the knowledge of formulating and conducting my own research to uncover and improve the day-to-day lifestyles of many.One day I hope to share my love of cultural development, differences, and behavior. My plans include not only finding healthier and safer ways to improve the lifestyles, but inspire others to take charge of their own life in a positive direction.
Undergraduate Degree: Arizona State University - Bachelor of Science, Anthropology
What is your teaching philosophy?
I have been many types of student throughout my years. I have been truly motivated, I have been discouraged, I've gone to tutoring because I just don't understand, and I have just chosen not to do something. With that in mind, I feel that I am able to relate with a multitude of students and help them with whatever troubles they might be having in school. I can relate and modify my teaching strategies to how the student's attitude is.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, I want to figure out what the student is struggling with, whether it is motivation or comprehension. I have the student try to do some of the assigned homework so I can get a sense of how they work. I then want to talk to the parents and ask them how the student normally does their homework and how they act in school and at home.
