I'm a freshman studying at New York University with an interest in Finance and Computing Data Science. Eventually, I want to combine my passion for social impact and business to create a lasting beneficial change. In high school, I have experience in public and private tutoring. I was part of the National Honor Society and World Language Honor Society in high school, tutoring any student who needed help in any subject.
Outside of academics, I love being outdoors, whether that be hiking, biking, running, or playing sports (basketball, soccer, football, etc.) My passion for the environment comes from me being outside all the time! I also sing in my free time, with experience in the local, state, and national choirs. Watching Netflix is another fun pastime of mine.

SAT Subject Tests Prep
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Helping a student think of solving problems in a different perspective or thinking about the subject in the context of another will help the student become an independent learner.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I will try to explain the skill/concept in a different way, whether that would be through a visual model or by taking on the concept from a different lens.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
When beginning to work with a student, I find it most useful to understand how the student is thinking about the problem at hand. By understanding how the student is thinking, I can better adjust my teaching to relate to the student.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I would help the student get more engaged with a subject by explaining the subject in a different way, specifically in a way that may relate to their lives or goals.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I would ask the student to explain in their own words the concept or skill, and then I would practice another problem with the student just so I can be sure the student knows the material.
