I have voluntarily taken a leave of absence from my current position to spend some time with my family and friends in my hometown, Austin. I graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with minors in bioengineering, chemistry and math. I find enjoyment in the mentor/mentee relationship and I would love to be a part of your tutoring experience.

Q & A

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

During the first session, I would like to get the student's background in the subject(s) we will be working on together along with the student's strengths and weaknesses.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

During the tutoring sessions, I will also discuss studying advice so the student can learn to strengthen their skills outside of tutoring.

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

There are always different ways to tackle any learning difficulties. The student and I will find the best way to conquer any issues.
