I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Stanford last June, and I hope to go on and become a School Psychologist one day. Some of my best experiences in school involve being a part of student groups and advising other students, whether it be through my tutoring help or advice for future schooling or careers. I am very invested in others doing well, especially after having nieces and nephews that I've guided through middle school and high school. I hope to gain more tutoring experience in order to better prepare myself for graduate studies and meet more people in the great area surrounding Palo Alto!
As of now, I have a year of official tutoring experience through my high school helping students with Algebra 2 and Geometry, and I have recently tutored math and reading comprehension to elementary, junior high, and high school students for a few months through an organization in Fresno, California known as Math Crazy. I try to make students as independent as possible while doing their work, but at the same time, I oversee their progress every step of the way. If I feel they need help, I will offer my advice, or if I'm simply curious to know how confident they feel with what they've done so far, I never hesitate to offer my assistance. I also find it important to prioritize what their goals are in terms of work that needs to be done and concepts that need to be learned. I make sure to include parents on the structure of the tutoring sessions and execute a method that works best for everyone involved.
As for my more personal details, I'm a pretty laid back guy who likes to relax at home or just hang out at my friends' houses. I would consider myself in touch with my inner child since I still love watching cartoons and get excited over what most consider tiny things in life, haha.
With all that said, I look forward to meeting some new students!
