I have a bachelor's degree from Boston University in Neuroscience with a minor in Engineering Science and a master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. During my studies and time in two research labs, I have come to know a wide variety of topics, including not only neuroscience and biology, but also speech science, biomechanics, programming, and signal processing.
I have been tutoring fellow students since high school, when I would help out with English and Chemistry homework for various honor societies.
As an undergrad, I instructed high school students and learners of all ages in neuroscience basics. I also worked as an LA (aka TA) for a class on applying neuroscience concepts and models in MATLAB. In graduate school, I continued to teach learners of all ages, at that time about my biomechanics lab and the research we did there. I also gave high schoolers a more in-depth coverage of neurorehabilitation at UNC Splash.
For me, the most satisfying part of tutoring is finding a way to approach a problem or concept that makes it engaging and approachable for my student. That way I get to be there for the best part of the learning process - your 'aha!' moment.
