Greetings. First off, I enjoy learning and I like to help others to enjoy the process. I am a Phd candidate in at UCSB in the field of Earth Sciences. I have been employed as a tutor over the last four years and am currently teaching classes at UCSB. From my experience, I believe that the teacher/student relationship is essential. There are many other people who understand mathematics and science very well, but being able to translate that information in a way that the student will learn and want to learn the material is just as essential. I consider myself to be a very good teacher in this respect. I relate well, am easy to get along with, relaxed, and funny. It's quite important to me that the student is enjoying the learning process. Other than the subject being taught, I hope to also implement study and organizational skills, which are helpful for all classes. I like people to find that even though the subject may be confusing and overwhelming at times, the feeling of understanding and accomplishment is more satisfying and will last much longer.
