I graduated from the University of Miami with a BS in Physics. While in high school, I attended math competitions across the country including one at Princeton University and another at New York University. My love for mathematics eventually led to virtual tutoring through Florida Virtual School where I tutored over 150 hours in Pre-Calculus, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Chemistry. I love to teach because it lets me share my enthusiasm for mathematics and science with other students and helps me get a deeper understanding of material that is useful for my higher level mathematics and physics courses. As a tutor, I break down complicated problems into manageable concepts so students can gain confidence in solving these problems on their own.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I like to teach students how to break down all problems into simple manageable parts, especially in mathematics subjects. Instead of memorizing methods, I encourage students to understand the core concept of problems and possibly relate it to real life examples so they could get to their answer using logic.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

First, I introduce myself and ask the student to tell me about him/herself. Then, I ask the student what he/she would like to get started on or what he/she struggles with the most.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Students become independent learners when they have developed a genuine interest in a subject and an effective method of studying said subject. Therefore, as a tutor, I can help them by using cool, real life applications of the subject material to make it interesting and provide them a variety of study equipment and methods, including interactive websites, YouTube videos, textbooks, etc.
