I have always had a passion for learning: the only thing I enjoy more than grasping a difficult concept is helping others gain that same understanding. I have always been near the top of my classes, which, along with my genial nature, led to me helping classmates learn as far back as elementary school. This informal tutoring continued into high school and college. Because of this experience, as well as my volunteer work in elementary special needs classrooms, I am experienced at tutoring students of all ages.
I received a college preparatory diploma from St. Louis University High School and am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Physics. With a perfect ACT score and perfect scores in all 6 of my AP classes, my knowledge of high school material and test taking abilities is exceptional. As for college, I have taken math classes up to Partial Differential Equations, and physics classes up to Modern Physics II.
As a physics major, my favorite subject to tutor is obviously science. However, math and test prep are also very fulfilling for me to tutor. I find the most effective way to tutor these topics is to first establish a thorough understanding of the core concepts, then show how the rest of the concepts naturally follow. Thus my tutoring style relies less on rote memorization and more on discovering connections between different concepts.
