I am passionate about helping others because I am a firm believer of great things truly being built when we work together. I want to help my students engage in themselves, with the firm belief that core learning occurs from introspection first. I know the personal attention students need being an alumni of the best high school in the Midwest. I studied across a number of disciplines in my collegiate career from pre medicine coursework to a few courses shy of an economics degree. I have tutored students at all levels, from colleagues to elementary students. I currently work as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. I aim to not only influence my students' learning strategies, but also influence the way they think!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy involves a combination of neolearning and traditional learning strategies that utilize methods that are tailored to each individual student. These strategies have demonstrated growth and hone deeper understanding of subject knowledge.

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

I would like to learn more about my student, what they like in general and specifically the subject they want personal attention in, and what they don't like or wish to overcome.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

All my teaching strategies revolve around becoming an ideal learner. Therefore, students may evolve their learning from when we work together to resonate my strategies in everyday life.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Motivation is finite, and it is dependent on what fuels an individual. I can help my students stay motivated by maintaining involvement and providing truthful feedback.

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

I would break the concept down into smaller workable aspects, and solidify each aspect, eventually weaving it all together and testing the student on the concept again. This may seem like it may be overdoing a skill or concept, but it is extremely important to me for the student to grasp every concept or skill I am teaching her.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Students who are struggling with reading comprehension need to give me an opportunity to teach them golden strategies that will definitely improve those areas into eventual strengths.

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

The strategies I found most successful involve connecting with the student on a personal level in order to gauge what learning strategies are inherent within the student.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I could help a student with engagement by explaining the terms of the subject matter in terms that resonate with the student.

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

I would quiz the student and make sure my students are following my thought process throughout each exercise.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

When a student begins to answer questions correctly by themselves with no help, it will be manifested that the student is thoroughly confident.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I evaluate a student based on competence that would be best demonstrated through evaluation tests and self-awareness.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

The student needs to feel comfortable to be able to engage in complicated concepts, and it is my duty as the tutor to ensure that they feel that way immediately.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I would use every resource to help the student in every capacity, as it is my preference to teach my students sustainable strategies to impact their success for life.
