I am currently a graduate student at the University of Chicago. I have been tutoring for over four years, with hundreds of hours of experience in various subjects. The reason I love being a tutor the most is because I can relate with my students. I myself once had to go through the same learning process for each subject that my students now face as well, and so I know what that feels like, and love to help guide others through it. Likewise, I truly understand where those confusions often lie, and--most importantly--how to best overcome those obstacles to reach the a proper understanding of the material at hand.

A little bit more about me! I'm an avid reader of a plethora of genres, and my other hobbies include baking, playing tennis, writing poetry, and watching Star Trek reruns. I'm also involved in various cultural and human rights organizations at college. In any remaining spare time, I can usually be found reading the news on actual physical newspapers.

Regarding my tutoring philosophy: as a tutor, I believe that the most important way to help my students understand their material better is by simply being there for them every step of the way. This way, students can feel comfortable making and consequently recognizing their common mistakes, which we can then work on to eventually fully grasp the material. I recognize that each person is unique and learns differently, and so I always try various learning methods to find the best technique for an individual's specific learning style that allows them to succeed the most.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that proper understanding stems only when a student can feel comfortable and confident about the material. Therefore, I encourage interactive learning methods to keep students engaged. I also believe in working with my students, instead of simply teaching to them, so that they can be more willing to address the areas that they need work on, thus allowing us to work together to achieve a better understanding of those key concepts.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The best way to help a student become an independent learner is to work with them. Rather than simply providing them the answers, I believe that it is also my job to teach students the essential tools of an independent learner, such as time management, the ability to recognize mistakes, and a willingness to learn so that eventually they can begin to grasp the material more easily on their own.
