Learning is one of the most rewarding experiences in life, so I'm passionate about helping people a discover that experience. I've worked in various teaching-related roles for the past 4 years, between summer camps and volunteering at after school programs. I've tutored for 3 semesters at Northeastern in Algebra 2, Pre-calc, and Intro levels of Macro and Micro economics.
I absolutely love tutoring math, seeing homework problems get completed is incredibly satisfying. More importantly, learning to think through a problem critically and really understand why your answer is right is a very important skill that applies to all problem solving in any phase of life. The reason I've chosen to study Finance and Economics is to apply that same critical thinking to bigger/more applied situations such as running a successful business and developing economic policy.
My tutoring style is very conversational. It's important for me to identify what a student understands and what they don't, from there I work to outline the reasoning that goes into finding the right answer. I'm here to guide a student, and empower them to perform the same sort of critical thinking on problems they face in the future.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning facts and trying to memorize them for a test is no fun, and super difficult for a lot of students. Learning to understand the principals that guide how the universe works is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. I help students understand the principals that make an answer right, not just the answer itself.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like to ask a student what they're trying to accomplish, either with the assignment they've been given, or with the class they're taking. I think having a clear understanding of the purpose behind the work and the class is the first step to success and an important motivator for students.
