I graduated from University of Houston with a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in history. While at school I took a wide variety of courses ranging from molecular biology to Chinese history to cognitive psychology. I love generally learning about a wide range of topic and am a bit of a jack of all trades. One of my great joys come in helping other students with whatever course work they had trouble. I believe given time and enough work from the student and from the tutor anybody can tackle any topic. When tutoring I find that no one strategy works every time and as such a tutor should adjust their ways based on the topic and the student. However, what should not change is the attention and effort put forth. I'm currently pursuing my passion in teaching by working on my teaching certificate with plans to teach secondary school. When not preparing for school I like playing basketball, tennis, playing the piano, following sports (go Rockets!), and reading.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Having patience and making sure the student understands the core concept of what he or she should learn.

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

I would like to get to know the student a bit, and find out just where the student has trouble.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By developing good and effective studying habits. This can be done by finding out what strategies would work for the particular student, and by teaching memorization techniques.
