Throughout high school I had inspirational teachers that influenced my need to enrich the lives of students. As a graduate from Stony Brook University with a Bachelors Degree in Earth and Space Science for Education, I am confident that I can utilize my knowledge to benefit the learning processes of students of various ages. I believe it is important to relate students academic and extra curricular interests to what I am tutoring, therefore we can focus on the positives! Nothing makes me happier to see a students light bulb go on after struggling with a subject! My goal as a tutor is to engage students throughout the learning process. As a self proclaimed science nerd, I believe that we should ask questions. I will encourage my students to go beyond what they are learning and ask "why" the world is the way it is!
It is important to me that not only are my students gaining knowledge from me but I also learn from them. Children are our future. I find I t is imperative that we as educators teach them the fundamentals of science and math so they can grow into the thinkers that change the world!
