My name is Natasha, and I'm a graduate student at MIT. I started tutoring from my first year of undergrad because I had such wonderful experiences when I was in high school learning with friends and upperclassmen. I am personally a social learner- I learn best when I'm talking and wrestling with concepts out loud and in a group. When I can express myself coherently, I know I have mastered the material.
When I started tutoring, I received a formal job, from my undergraduate university, at the Learning Den at Johns Hopkins University Office of Student Support. I hosted lectures every week in a variety of subjects spanning mathematics, engineering physics, to chemistry and the biological sciences. Here, I encountered a variety of students and different learning styles, and learned how to adapt to each one. Working with students exposed me to various styles - visual, audio, interactive and many more types of teaching. I find that every student has their own way of incorporating the material, and I want to effectively teach in a way that helps you learn in the method most conducive to your understanding.
Currently, I enjoy working with physical and mathematically oriented subjects. Mathematics, coding, physics, chemistry, and biology are my favorite topics to teach since there are numerous ways to arrive at an answer, and I love the creativity permitted in problem-solving.
