I'm an undergraduate studying Mathematics and Computer Science at UDC, and I also have an associates degree in Computer Science. Moreover, I have experience tutoring my peers from when I was in high school and for a few months during my first semester of college when I helped teach a high school AP Computer Science class; it was a very rewarding experience. This is along with the last year, or so, of tutoring I've done professionally though WyzAnt. Finally, 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 therefore I find it hard to accept new things without that understanding. I believe that when teaching, it is 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.
