I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I primarily grew up in San Francisco, CA and Austin, TX. I study and work in New York City as student at Columbia University. I am currently a senior studying Biomedical Engineering with concentrations in computer science and electrical engineering. I attended high school at St. Andrew's Episcopal School where I focused extensively on mathematics and science. My high school also nurtured strong discussion and writing skills. Although I was also involved in sports and musicals, I enjoyed participating in academic competitions, in which I could explore my engineering interests, such as Science Olympiad and TEAMS. In high school, I primarily tutored in biology, physics, and mathematics. Tutoring was my way to gain teaching experience and give back to my school. In college, for similar reasons, I currently work as a TA in computer science. I also conduct glaucoma research in a clinical research lab.
My tutoring approach is very methodical; I identify and isolate issues, while imparting fundamental knowledge and problem solving tips. The key to mastering any subject-I believe- is the ability to identify and understand grey areas and edge-cases in the material. I help my students identify these critical questions and answer them to the best of my abilities. I will admit, however, when I don't know the answer to a question. Rather than mislead my students, I always prefer to research an answer or attack the question together. I help my students get to the bottom of things.
