I first discovered my passion for teaching while running statistical analysis and data science workshops for my undergraduate consulting group. When I realized that we could improve the quality of the work we did for our clients by including rigorous data analysis, I made it a priority to help my fellow consultants develop the skills they needed to use these tools. In this context, I developed workshop plans for individual project teams, teaching consultants both the conceptual foundations of the tools we'd be working with and how to apply them with statistical computing software to their data set. My work has helped students on a wide variety of project teams not only provide quality analysis to their clients, but also develop an interest in statistical techniques.
I have a passion for mathematics and statistics, and I believe that anyone can learn to use these tools to answer interesting questions in a wide variety of subject areas. I care deeply about helping students understand how math and statistics can be interesting and useful, and how they can leverage their own ways of thinking to motivate intuition about these topics. I believe that no one is "bad at math", and anyone can succeed with the right study plan!
Outside of tutoring, I will start a job in the trading division of a large investment bank later this summer. I am also an avid athlete: I love to run, and enjoy just about every fitness class you can imagine. The more intense the better! Additionally, I plan to pursue a PhD in economics, focusing on the economic impacts of gentrification and how we can address them through housing policy.
