I am currently a rising fourth year student at the University of Virginia working on a major in biomedical engineering. As a long-time science student who has experienced many academic trials and tribulations, I have a fairly good sense of the tremendous benefits tutoring can have, and it is quite rewarding to help other students get through difficulties and develop greater appreciation for various subjects. For three years, I formally tutored students through my high school's Math Honor Society. Since then, I have informally tutored my younger brother (a rising college freshman) in chemistry, calculus, biology, statistics, and physics. In addition, I have worked with a couple other students privately over the past five years in their homes. Outside of my studies, I greatly enjoy music, biking, hiking, and playing basketball.

I would describe my tutoring style as quite relaxed and highly focused on individual needs and goals. It revolves around listening to what the student has to say, observing where he/she struggles most, and working to serve as a guide in his/her learning. My knowledge and experience equip me to tutor algebra, geometry, calculus, general chemistry, and high school to college level biology at high levels. However, my favorite subjects to teach are algebra and calculus due to their broad applicability and my personal experience; students tend to have big breakthroughs in these subjects, especially when they begin without much expertise or confidence.
