I am an alumni of the University of Texas at Austin, providing a strong background in science and math. I graduated in the top 3% of my high school class, ensuring automatic acceptance into state schools.

I have experience tutoring students from age 12 to adults in college. These subjects range from the core classes of math, science, English, and social studies to higher level courses. I have experience tutoring AP courses for high school level students as well as SAT/ACT prep for juniors and seniors. I am very open-minded and creative when it comes to catering to the learning needs or preference of each student. We all learn concepts and grasp material in a different way, so my tutoring methods are unique to the individual.

I am the oldest in my family, so I have a great deal of patience with my students. I believe that a balance of strict guidelines in terms of what is expected from a student on their end in addition to praise is important. I create a sense of easiness with the students so that they feel comfortable to ask me questions without the fear of judgement on my end. Furthermore, I like to keep a very open line of communication between myself, the parents, and the students so that we are all keeping track of progress, making sure we are on the same page. Might I add that a 20-point jump in grades is pretty impressive! From failing to a solid B given the amount of time, perhaps less than a month! These improvements are not impossible and maintaining such grades are definitely attainable.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I began taking piano lessons myself when I was just ten years old. After learning the fundamentals and basics, my teacher began providing me with pieces that I was to learn pretty much on my own, and show progress each week. I continue to sit at the piano and play what I can. Each new piece is a challenge in itself, and makes the end product that much better.

Sociology

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Human Biology with a concentration of "Problems in Developing Countries." My concentration paralleled numerous lower-division and upper-division sociology courses. I also conducted an independent research under the mentorship of a sociology professor during my undergrad at UT.

Tennis

I played tennis in middle school, non-competitively. I also played tennis during some of high school, competitively. I continue to drill with my younger sibling.

Violin

I played the violin and was an active member of my school orchestra since 6th grade. I was second violin, first chair all of my freshman year in high school. And continued to make all-city and all-region orchestras.
