I completed my high school education at Walter Payton College Prep and just finished freshman year at Harvard. I have always had a passion for both learning and working with others. I have never been afraid of asking others for help on homework or classwork and have been eager to help classmates seeking help.
I first got exposure to tutoring as a volunteer in the LIT program, a program designed to help under-privileged kids catch up in reading and writing. On top of being a part-time tutor, I have experience helping kids working as a camp counselor at Fred's Camp and Camp Chicago as well as taking on babysitting jobs around my neighborhood.
In my experience as a tutor, the most important thing I realized was that there isn't a cookie cutter way of teaching any subject to any student. Each student is different, and I pay attention to their learning style and adjust accordingly. I strive to not only make sure students can solve each problem but that they thoroughly comprehend the concept as well. After finding the weak points in their understanding, I introduce problems and ask questions that specifically target those areas.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you to reach your academic goals!
