I am a sophomore Actuarial Science student at St. John's University, which basically means I love math! I want to help everyone love math as much as I do and help everyone understand it.

What is your teaching philosophy?
To learn something, you need to understand why it is the way it is; you will never learn by just memorizing things.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introducing myself, and letting the student know who I am and feel comfortable with me, is the most important thing. Then I can get into the work and try to identify the student's strengths and weaknesses.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Showing a student independent study skills is very important because someone won't always be there to help them.
