I am currently an undergrad at Vanderbilt University, majoring in Mathematics and Political Science. I have been tutoring students since high school, mostly in science and math. I've found that STEM courses are intimidating to many students, and I hope to get rid of that fear and promote an appreciation for numbers and the sciences. In my tutoring, I focus on helping students understand the concepts beneath the problems, so as to facilitate learning rather than memorization. I strongly believe that every student is capable of reaching a strong level of understanding in any subject, given the correct tools, a teacher who can offer what they need, and some hard work.
I am also available for standardized test prep. The SAT and ACT are one of the biggest hurdles in the college admissions process, and a score can make or break an application. Luckily, students can prepare for these tests fairly easily - repetition, time-management, and concept-review are all most students need to improve their scores, and I am happy to teach them how to do it.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, running, reading books about international politics and history, watching TV and movies, and listening to music.
