I am a Binghamton University and Townsend Harris High School graduate. I was a tutor for psychology students at Binghamton and really enjoyed helping others learn. I would like to continue to tutoring by helping high school and college students in their math and science courses. I have performed well on standardized tests including the GRE, SAT and ACT so I am also willing to tutor students for those tests and assist in general test prep. I really enjoy tutoring and sharing my knowledge with others in order to help build confidence and academic skills.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Try your hardest and be confident in what you know!

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

In my first session I get to know the student and assess what areas the student needs help in most.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By teaching study skills and focusing on success in order to motivate the student to continue to learn.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

When struggling I will encourage the student to take a break and remember how far they have come and what they have learned so far.

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

I will break down the skill into smaller steps and focus on each of the smaller steps individually. With a complicated concept I will try to use several examples to make the concept clearer and more relatable.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

I have found that allowing the student to approach the problem or topic first without my assistance first in order to see what they can do on their own. Then I can see where they need my assistance and how much help they need.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I give the students practice problems and have the student explain their thought process. Then I have the student teach the material back to me. If the student can do that, he or she knows the topic very well!
