I have tutored the San Diego and Santa Cruz areas for eight years as an independent tutor. I have experience with students of all ages, especially with high school and college students. I received an Associates of Science for Transfer in Mathematics from Palomar Community College in May 2015, and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of California at Santa Cruz in September 2017. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, as well as researching for a book on Alexander Hamilton's economic policy.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is much like that of Socrates. One should first draw from what the student already knows before introducing new information.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

While being an independent learner is ultimately the student's decision, I can help the student understand why such habits are beneficial both academically and personally.

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

I get to know the student, their learning style, and try to get a general idea of the problem areas.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I ask the student why they have put time aside to study the given subject and remind them that overcoming the difficulties they are having in understanding the subject will help them achieve their goal. If the student becomes especially frustrated, I tell them that there is nothing wrong with setting the material aside and coming back to it later.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would try to use something more common to their understanding or learning style to demonstrate the concept.
