I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Biomedical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. While this coursework has given me an extensive background in engineering and the physical sciences, I enjoy English and Mathematics the most. I have always been passionate about writing, "debuting" countless short stories to my family (my favorite captive audience) growing up. Up until high school, however, I had a more complicated relationship with math. Rarely the kid to instantly grasp a mathematical concept from a textbook explanation, I learned how to approach each challenge from multiple angles. This mindset transformed my view of math, and I came to appreciate even the more advanced problems as the enticing critical thinking puzzles they really were. Most importantly, it made me enthusiastic about solving difficult problems, and I have applied this mentality to all of my tutoring experiences ever since. Working as a Kumon instructor for four years, I helped children aged 5-14 through math and reading worksheets. Since then, I have tutored for standardized tests (including the SAT and ACT), volunteered at math competitions, and worked as a counselor for an accelerated math and physics program held at my college.
I believe that my job as a tutor is to push my student's understanding beyond the specific question at hand so that they feel comfortable doing similar exercises in the future. I know how it feels not to get something the first, second, or maybe even third time it is explained. However, rest assured that whether it is basic kinematics or MCAT Biochemistry, we will work together until we figure out what makes sense for you.
