I'm a senior undergraduate student of Mathematics and Computer Science at UDC. I have an associates degree in Computer Science. I have experience tutoring my peers from when I was in high school, and for a few months during my first semester of college I helped teach a high school AP Computer Science class. It was a very rewarding experience. I have continued to help my peers in a less official capacity as I've continued my own education.
I love to learn new things and always ask questions when doing so. I find it personally important to reach a true understanding of whatever I'm trying to learn; and so, I find it hard to accept new things without that understanding. I believe that when teaching it's my responsibility to find a way to communicate to the student this deeper understanding, and not let them just "accept" a fact or learn too mechanically. Learning, not just doing, in any subject or area of life, is a form of personal growth; it allows us to look at the world in new ways, reevaluate our beliefs, and form connections which ultimately lead to new inventive ideas.
