I am a recent college graduate with degrees in physics and astrophysics. I work for a technology startup in St Paul, and aim to attend graduate school in technology policy. I began tutoring in high school, and have since continued enjoyed helping my peers to see a puzzle in a new light. From four summers as a leadership camp counselor, I have gained confidence working one-on-one with a student to help them consider new perspectives, and from four years of discussion sections in college where I presented solutions to the class I have learned to present my work cleanly and comprehensibly.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
The first step is listening and learning where the student is in their understanding of the topic. Then I work with the student to find a new way to look at the problem that helps them understand similar problems in future.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
It's all about learning the process that leads to a solution. If I can help a student find a new path to a solution within their preferred learning style, they can take that thought process and apply it in other scenarios.
