I first started tutoring others while in high school. I casually tutored some of my friends and peers who needed help in mutual classes, such as AP Calculus, AP Stats, and AP Physics. I became more involved with formal tutoring as a member of National Honor Society. I was active in tutoring both peers in my own age group, as well as those younger than me in subjects like Calculus and Physics. After I went to college, I went back to informally tutoring some of my friends in classes that we were taking together or that I had already taken. Some of these classes included general chemistry and some organic chemistry, as well as calculus and statics and dynamics in biological systems. At my university, I am getting back into formal tutoring by becoming a teaching assistant for a biology lab/lecture that I took in the past and did well in. I have always enjoyed trying to help others understand subjects that are more difficult to grasp. I believe I have a good understanding of effective teaching methods. I believe that the best ways to learn material are through practicing problems, through making sure each component of a problem is understood, and through methods such as mnemonic devices.
I am currently an undergrad at Stony Brook University. I am a Biomedical Engineering major on a cellular and molecular track. When I am not in school and have free time, I enjoy fishing, playing and watching hockey, and catching up and spending time with friends.
