I am a graduate from University of the Pacific. I have recently completed the blended masters program at UoP with a M.S. in engineering sciences as well as a B.S. in civil engineering. My hope is to utilize the knowledge and techniques I have developed over the last five years to help students instill good study habits as well as become more successful in the classroom. Overall, I wish to make learning fun and worth while as education is key to any future; whether developing a better understanding of general/advanced mathematics and sciences or studying for the daunting SAT/ACT tests, striving for a higher level of education is something I wish to convey to each and every tutee.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Practice makes perfect; there's more than one way to skin a cat, and "It ain't what a man don't know that makes him a fool... It's all the things he does know, that just ain't so." - Josh Billings

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

Become familiar with things that they like, what they do at school, and connect on a personal level. Then, I would approach the situation as to what they need from me in order to feel like they are gaining something from the tutoring experience. Everyone has a method of problem solving and wrapping their mind around concepts; I take it as a challenge to learn what the method is and grow the tutee's understanding.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

No. Independence is gained through self motivation and desire. I can help a student understand a concept and help them realize the importance of what they are doing, I can teach them a method and how to approach a problem. What they do as an independent learner is up to them and their desire to succeed without someone there to guide them.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

One who is motivated generally finishes a task because there is an "end goal" in mind. For people who work out, it's a certain level of health, or weight loss/gain. For sports, it's getting to the championship or breaking a record. Studying needs to viewed in the same light; I will help them paint a picture of their end goal, and we will work together to make that a reality.
