I am currently a second-year undergraduate student majoring in biomedical engineering while also on the pre-med track at Stony Brook University. Science and math are my greatest interests and that is what I enjoy most, along with Spanish. I am also able to tutor in SAT math and ACT math and science.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I try to do my best to make learning fun and enjoyable rather than just teaching and lecturing. I think making a subject relatable and enjoyable makes it easier to learn and gives a student the desire to succeed.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would consistently review the topic in as many ways possible that I know so the student would understand. I would also take the concept and break it up into small parts so the student can gradually understand.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I would give the student questions on that topic and ask them to complete it. If it is not done mostly right, I would teach the student the concepts again.
What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?
I would use my laptop, my phone, possibly a whiteboard, the student's notes, textbook and online practice questions.
