I am a 2nd year student at the University of Chicago studying Economics. While I tutor high school mathematics and reading as well as most Advanced Placement subjects, I have the most experience working with students on standardized test prep. Through preparing for and taking countless standardized tests I've developed a rigorous understanding of how best to tackle them.

Throughout high school I spent afternoons working with classmates through our school's tutoring program on a variety of subjects. Now in college I teach and coach debate at a local high school. In addition to being able to coach debate, I also have substantial insight on the college application process and would be more than happy to provide advising.

In my free time I enjoy exploring new outdoor activities and trying new foods.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

With regards to the subjects I teach, practice is the most important thing. I find that a rigorous understanding of concepts is best developed with guided practice and student participation.

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

Most important is what a student hopes to gain/learn. After setting goals, I'd like to learn a bit about the student themselves and where they are with respect to the subject at hand.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I encourage my students to come to their own conclusions. When working through problems I will help them along when necessary and teach conceptual topics but they themselves must solve the question.

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

In the context of standardized test prep and mathematics, a student grasps the material when they can apply the concepts to solve different/new problems.
