I am a undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, where I am working on a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. One of my biggest passions is helping students succeed in various math subjects, whether that be algebra or calculus.
At one point in my life, I absolutely hated math. It seemed like all we did was read and answer questions from a workbook. There was no critical thinking or creative problem solving. However, after being influenced by great math teachers I started to see how math could be applied to almost anything, and I began to enjoy the challenge. I have helped all levels of students from elementary school to college.
Through tutoring I strive to instill a growth mindset-- that is, the idea that anyone can succeed if they work hard and persevere. I use an engaging, questions-based approach to tutoring, and I believe that the best way to learn is through making mistakes.
