My Education: Learning doesn't have to be constrained by others expectations. My high school learning environment included tutoring, classroom instruction and independent learning in equal parts. I understand the advantages of each and how they can benefit a particular student's learning style. I enjoy the challenge of finding alternative ways to present different ideas.
Age 10: Tutoring and independent study enabled me to score in the 50th percentile on the SAT (math- 650)
Age 16: Oglethorpe University: Differential and Integral calculus (calc. I &II). Physics I and II.
Age 17: Georgia State University: Multivariate calculus. Differential equations. Vector calculus. Microeconomics. Macroeconomics. Statistics.
Age 18 to present: I attend Rice University as a student-athlete who has maintained a 3.5 in the Mathematical Economic Analysis curriculum.
Experience: I privately tutored a friend last summer while she was taking a Calculus I class at a local university. She had minimal background in precalculus and trigonometry and had not taken a math class in over a year. Despite these obstacles, she ended up with an A as her final grade. I really enjoyed the experience. I enjoyed the challenge of finding new ways to present the material when she initially had a difficult time understanding it. I honestly felt that she understood the material after I had tutored her.
Extracurricular: I enjoy playing and listening to music and I completely enjoy athletic activities. I enjoy the competition as well as the camaraderie. Baseball has become my main focus, but previously, I had obtained a black belt in tae kwon do and was the Georgia state champion in the 50 meter freestyle event. Later, I was fortunate enough to represent the United States as part of the 16u and 18u gold medal USA Baseball Teams. Presently, I'm a member of the the Rice University Varsity Baseball Team and am recovering from Tommy John surgery.
