I started tutoring because I enjoy explaining things to people, and my friends said that I am very good at that. I've been teaching math for over a year, and hope to continue teaching for many more years. My primary focus is on eighth grade through junior year math, though I can tutor any age or experience level. I am also great with physics.

I like to use a method that focuses on ensuring general understanding. I think it's more important that a student understands how an algorithm or function works, rather than to memorize what the function is. This method works for general schoolwork, standardized test preparation, or even competition-level math.
