I am a junior studying chemical engineering at the University of Michigan. I have experience with preparing for and taking the ACT and SAT, as well as expertise in a variety of high school-level subjects. I am an easygoing person with a lot of patience, and I have experience tutoring peers from my high school, as well as my younger sister. I love helping people understand new concepts and I strive to make material interesting to students, as I believe a vested interest in material can drastically improve a student's understanding and performance.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Be patient with students, and provide them with opportunities to master material on their own
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introduce myself, and find out a little more about them; their interests, hobbies, and favorite TV shows. This will help me provide relevant examples and really connect with them in the learning process.
