I am pursuing my Bachelor's in Chemistry at New York University. Helping fellow students has always been a passion of mine. I think that the goal of tutoring shouldn't be to simply help students pass tests or raise their grades. My goal whenever I tutor is to help the student feel confident and comfortable enough to continue growing independently long after tutoring sessions. I have tutoring experience in Reading, Math, and Sciences with all ages of elementary students, as well as Calculus and Chemistry with high school students. All these varied experiences have shown me that everyone learns in different ways. Some people need practice with fundamentals, others learn with visual representations, and so on. My goal with tutoring is to help people find the way they can understand something, allowing them to continue independently in the future.
My peers and I enjoyed this so much that we started a volunteer program for NYU undergraduates to tutor in elementary schools. This has further exposed me to a large array of teaching and learning styles which I try to draw on when understanding how to help teach. This experience is a major reason why I choose to continue helping students like myself. School can be frustrating, but finding the ways that allow you as an individual to learn can transform learning into a much more fun and rewarding experience. Once I get to know individual students, I can help create practice work or assignments to solidify new skills. For some people this could mean practice problems. For others, this could mean watching assigned videos and following along. If one method doesn't seem to work, I will try something new!
I specialize in high school level Sciences and Mathematics, ranging from Pre-Algebra to AP Calculus prep. This also includes preparation for SAT Subject/AP tests such as Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics (1&2). I am also experienced with elementary aged students teaching Reading and Math.
