I graduated from Tufts University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Cum Laude in 2009. Since then, I've worked as an engineer and a consultant on technical projects of all sorts, collaborating with a diverse set of team members and clients along the way. If I know anything at all, it is that communication is key. An understanding of who you are working with and how to connect to that person productively and positively will take things much further than expertise of the subject matter ever could on its own.
Although learning math generally requires the application of strict rules and procedures, the way in which those rules and procedures are absorbed ought to be approached in any way but strict. Each student has his or her own style of learning, and regardless of that student's strengths and weaknesses, there are always methods of presenting math in a relevant, accessible way. Every student deserves a teacher with whom he or she can communicate comfortably, openly, and positively, and I strive to fill that role in order to know the student and provide the most meaningful approach possible.
