I am currently a graduate student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center where I am studying for a masters in medical science. I recently earned my bachelors degree in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University.
I have a strong passion for mathematics, science, and engineering and an even stronger passion for teaching and mentoring younger generations. I am a firm believer in connecting the concepts of the subjects I tutor to real world examples and in incorporating hands-on learning methods.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
When teaching a concept, I like to start from a point the student understands and build up to the new concept. Essentially, I like to guide my students to the answer instead of just telling them plainly.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, I would be sure to outline the student's learning/academic goals and determine the student's learning style. With this information, I can then tailor my future sessions in a way that best facilitates my student's learning.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By equipping the student with the necessary skills and confidence to succeed in learning without someone guiding them step by step. This can be achieved by first working through a concept together and then allowing the student to do it on their own under my supervision. Over time, the student will grow more confident and will become a successful independent learner.
