I am currently a third year dental student at the CU Dental School and I would one day love to become a Pediatric dentist! I absolutely love working with kids and I think that becoming a teacher/tutor can be a valuable tool to one day use in my practice. Although I have a strong background in math and science, I also love to read and even dabble in some Spanish. I can work with all age groups and I think every student can teach me something as well! Learning how to relate to kids and giving them insight on how to solve problems can be very rewarding!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I think in order to teach, I have to learn about the student's background knowledge and any fears/anxiety that may be associated with the subject. My job is to start with the basics, form a relationship, and instill some confidence in the student to then proceed into solving problems.
