I am a rising freshman at Harvard University pursuing a concentration in computer science. I'm also interested in potentially going on to law school after my undergraduate studies. I have a wide range of interests but I spend most of my free time either reading, painting, exercising, listening to music or dragging my friends to interesting locations to take photographs. My favorite book genre is psychological thrillers and I like listening and singing along to almost all types of music.
Through school, I have been successful in all of my academic endeavors, largely due to the variety of techniques I've learned over the years to help understand information. I've tutored students my age in subjects ranging from essay writing to standardized test preparation to math so those are going to be the primary subjects I plan on tutoring. I've found that often students struggle to understand material not because they are incapable, but because they aren't learning in ways that align with how they think. For example, I find that visual learners like myself like to see things in front of them, whereas auditory learners benefit much more from a verbal explanation. I also think that the most important part of learning is figuring things out by yourself, so my teaching style largely consists of providing support in addition to explanations and challenges that help my students learn to think creatively in order to solve problems.
As a recent high school graduate, I understand the pressures associated with standardized test preparation and the importance of tests such as the ACT and SAT. I will be tutoring preparations for both of these as I myself have taken both tests twice and improved my score in addition to helping others improve their own scores.
I think learning is an enjoyable process but can often feel tedious due to the straightforward nature of many traditional teaching styles. I hope to make each tutoring session engaging, informative, and enjoyable, ultimately helping you to achieve your academic goals. I look forward to working with you!
