I am currently an undergraduate student who is part of the Honors College at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am pursuing a Bachelors in Science Degree in Neuroscience with a Minor in Music. I am available to tutor students in a large variety of subjects , but I especially enjoy serving as a tutor for mathematics or science-related disciplines. In the past, I have had 2-3 years of experience (online and in-person) tutoring numerous high school students in disciplines as Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Biology, and Chemistry. Even when not formally serving as a tutor, I have always felt inclined to provide other students with advice concerning time management skills and studying tips to ensure their prospective academic success.
I also enjoy to serve as a test-prep tutor, particular for the ACT and various AP tests. I believe these tests have large implications upon determining one's aptitude for success in college, and, thus, I believe that their importance should not be undermined. Personally, I have also participated as a student in ACT-prep classes to become better educated on useful test-taking strategies and tips. Relatedly, I am also willing to provide advice to younger high school or middle school students regarding how to adapt to college academics, or, in more general terms, college life.
As a tutor, I believe it is most vital to be persistent and patient when helping other students. I strive to employ a more independent-tutoring approach, in which I attempt to help a student as sparingly as possible as to allow a student to arrive at a solution mostly on his/her terms. For me, learning and problem-solving require individual insight and reasoning, and, thus, my job as a tutor will encompass helping a student comprehend basic/underlying conceptual principles so that the student can arrive at an answer as independently as possible. Additionally, as a tutor, I will impart knowledge stressing the importance of time management and balancing skills on academic prosperity, and, also, I will attempt to make learning more enjoyable by connecting what a student is being taught to real-world applications.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching and playing baseball and tennis, singing, playing the Alto Saxophone, playing the Guitar, and going to the movies.
