I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree at the University of Virginia, where I plan to study Business, and I graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in 2015. I have extensive volunteer tutoring experience, having worked with kindergarten and second grade students as a reading tutor and middle school students as a math tutor. I am passionate about tutoring because of my own life long love of learning, and because I believe that all children are capable of accomplishing amazing things if they have a committed support system. I tutor reading, writing, math, economics, french and test prep. Over a broad range of subjects, I particularly enjoy tutoring reading and writing. In my spare time, I enjoy practicing yoga and exploring the greater DC area.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Practice, practice, practice! I believe the only way to achieve mastery is through repetition. Even though it can be tedious, the confidence you gain is worth it.

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

I would get to know my student first, and then begin with diagnostic tests to assess their strengths and weaknesses.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Have the student set specific goals that we can check off as they progress. The student or parents also might want to create a reward for accomplishing certain goals.

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

I would find an alternate way to explain the concept. I also would direct the student to alternative resources that could help them.
