I'm a recent graduate from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (Hook 'em Horns!). I've been involved with teaching K-12 for 3 years now during my college career and have had a passion for teaching ever since my first job in high school at a math tutoring company. I scored well on both the SAT and the ACT thanks to many prep courses for the SAT and adequate prep materials for the ACT. In high school, my favorite subjects were by far Math, Biology and Spanish, and I made sure to apply my love for those subjects through studying Biomedical Engineering with a Spanish minor. I have also scored well on the MCAT in hopes of going to medical school someday.
My personal philosophy with teaching focuses on being personable. I'm still a child at heart and I believe that I should not have to sacrifice professionalism for having a silly personality. I also believe that being a tutor involves being relatable to my students and being understanding of both failure and success. There were many times that I failed in high school and college, and I am not afraid to tell my stories to help motivate my students. I also believe in breaking down concepts as much as possible and trying my best to understand how others understand concepts. I look forward to working with you and enjoying the privilege of watching your academic improvement!
