I am a graduate from NYIT with a degree in Life Sciences Biology applying to medical schools. I have prior experience tutoring at Kumon, teaching elementary and middle school students a wide range of topics in math, reading comprehension and writing. I have a passion for science and mathmatics and understand that these may be topics many students dislike. I aim to help students by using examples from the real world as well as other techniques that make it easier for the student to appreciate and understand these topics.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Make the material easy to understand and interesting for the student.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Ask to see where they are in their subject matter and what topics give them the most difficulty. From that I would try to give them a few practice problems, and see why they might be struggling with that topic and how they approach the problems.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can try and teach them the importance of studying on-the-go, and the importance of using their free time for their benefit.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would help a student stay motivated by showing them how better grades will lead to a more confident and well-rounded version of themselves.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would give the student a few practice problems in that topic and see where in their thinking process they seem to be making their mistake, and show them a better method.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
With a student struggling with reading comprehension, I would ask them what their hobby is, be it sports, technology, etc. From this I would ask them to read a few articles on a website or journal based off this topic, and by doing so they could learn to like to read as well.
