I am a junior at Cornell University where I am working toward a Bachelor of Arts in Physics. In the past, I have worked at Kumon as a math and reading tutor. I am most passionate about teaching Math, Physics, and Spanish. I try to bring that passion to each tutoring session so that the lessons are both interesting and enriching. My ultimate goal is simple: when a student is able to explain a topic or even teach it back to me, I am confident that they have truly mastered the material.

Q & A

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

It's important to gain an understanding of the student's foundation in the subject area. I would assess the student's command of the current subject material, but I would also make sure that they have a strong foundation in the subject from prior classes before focusing solely on new topics.

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

There is always more than one way to look at a concept, so I would adapt my teaching style to fit the needs of the student.

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

I believe that when a student can explain a topic (or their thought process in solving a problem), they have truly mastered the material.
