I hope to one day be a high school math and science teacher; in pursuit of this goal, I teach as much as possible, and I have taken classes towards my undergraduate degree at the University of Chicago, Loyola University, and Northeastern Illinois University. I am presently enrolled at Depaul in order to finish the requirements to be certified as a high school physics and math teacher in the state of Illinois.
I have over three years of experience in tutoring Latin, Attic Greek, math, science, test preparation, ESL, and college application essay editing. I attained the bulk of this experience tutoring students in the North Shore suburbs and students at selective enrollments high schools in Chicago. I believe that compassionate teaching based on the understanding that each student is an individual with particular strengths and weaknesses is the key to helping students improve and gain academic confidence. I provide my students with the resources that they need in order to succeed in their classes and to take ownership of their own learning. I am a firm advocate of the idea that a tutor's principal mission is to teach a student how to teach themselves, how to problem solve, and how to work in an organized fashion. Although I believe that learning should be taken seriously, I cultivate a low stress environment in my tutoring sessions so that my students feel at ease and can work at their own pace; I often pepper my lessons with silly jokes and trivia.
When I am not teaching or studying, I enjoy playing stringed instruments (viola, guitar, sitar), practicing Aikido, cooking spicy food, and watching films.
