I graduated from high school in 2015 and am currently attending Vanderbilt University for a Chemical Engineering degree with a minor in Biological Sciences. I love all math and science, but my favorite subjects include Chemistry, Calculus, Trigonometry, and Economics. I also love listening to and creating music, fishing, reading, computer games, the Oxford comma, discovering other INTJs, and anything that involves cats.

I was hired by Varsity Tutors in May of 2016. Before working for Varsity Tutors, I have had informal experience in high school tutoring peers and younger students in mostly math and science. I also tutored ACT prep, and helped a peer raise her composite score 3 points. I like to emphasize understanding concepts rather than simple memorization because memorization does not promote a clear understanding of class material or strengthen critical thinking skills. I firmly believe knowing concepts allows students to expand their problem solving skills into unknown territory and allows them to better address unfamiliar questions and problem sets.

I recognize that not all students learn best through the same teaching methods. I like to try multiple ways of teaching styles until I find something that works for the student. I will put a lot of stress on fundamental material, why a subject's foundations exist, interpreting the information in practice problems, and lastly, applying fundamental material in practice problems or real world situations. Ultimately, I absolutely love helping a student reach his or her full potential!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I value concepts over memorization. One truly can only fully understand a subject if one knows the "why" behind it.

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

Address what the student feels he or she is struggling on most. I would have practice problems prepared, depending on the student's needs, to work through together.

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

I would help them pick out the main ideas and important information in paragraphs, and explain how to strategize and come to such conclusions.
