I am currently a student at the University of Texas-Austin, and in the Honors Biomedical Engineering Program. Throughout high school and into college, I have tutored students of all ages; anywhere from my employment at a mathematics tutoring center to private lessons for students my age. Other parts of my life include playing sports (tennis, soccer, ping pong, basketball), jamming on the piano, and doing extracurriculars at school.

I believe the most effective teachers are not those who know the most, but those who motivate their students to want to know it all. I like to keep the student as engaged and focused as possible in the work. From my personal experiences in high school up to the Biomedical Engineering program, I have learned the variety of ways students learn and try my best to implement the most appropriate method. Last but not least, I try to ensure the student has fun and genuinely enjoys the sessions with the tutor.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Understanding is the number one priority.

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

Go over the student’s personalized needs, create a schedule, and begin in areas the student requests the most assistance.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will teach the method, then expect the student to complete problems on their own.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

An initial assessment is key. This allows me as well as the student to truly understand their weak spots and to improve from there.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I would start out with a story about the subject being applied in real life that is interesting. This usually gets the student curious and from there the lesson goes smoothly.

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

I would ask the student to answer questions in front of me, and check the work in addition to the answer.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

I would give the student questions that I know they can perform every now and again, just so they get a confidence boost and become willing to tackle the more difficult problems.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I begin with talking to the student, the parents, and an assessment. Then as the lesson goes on, I begin to get an understanding myself.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

Multiple teaching styles, the necessity of breaks, and hands on fun can all be catered to the student.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I will have my personal notes, all sorts of practice questions, and hands on material.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would tell the student a story in a fun way about the subject.

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

I will use a different teaching style and potentially give the student a small break.

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

They would go through passages more slowly and really understand individual words. Breaking down the sections is the most effective method.
