I am currently a junior at the Macaulay Honors College at the City College of New York. I am majoring in chemical engineering, and because of this, I have plenty of experience with math and science courses. These are also the types of courses I have tutored in the past. I have experience tutoring Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and AP Chemistry to students from my high school in Queens, New York. My passion for tutoring comes from a passion for knowledge in general. I value education, and I believe that every student has the potential to excel in school. Sometimes it takes a good tutor to bring out that potential, and that is what I strive to be. I especially love helping students develop problem solving strategies, which is why mathematical subjects are my favorite to tutor. I believe that it is important to think like a problem solver, which means that students need to understand the "why" behind the equations rather than just memorizing them. When students struggle in math, it is often because they are trying to learn through rote memorization rather than by gaining a deep understanding of the topic. My goal is to help students attain this understanding. Incidentally, most standardized exams also test students' problem solving skills; they often need to apply information they know in a new and creative way. My tutoring strategy therefore works well with standardized tests, such as the SAT and the ACT, as well as with school subjects. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano or saxophone, acting, and reading.
