I love teaching.

I finished my undergraduate education in Economics, but I have a very broad range of education from mathematics to ancient history. My tutoring methods heavily revolve around understanding the material through practical examples to help students learn better! I find that when they can tie a problem to something they can see and touch or visualize in the real world, they have a much easier time understanding the material. I help them learn intuitively what the subject is about, so eventually it becomes second nature to them.

I have math tutoring experience at my college for 4 years, and have tutored economics for 2 years. I also have experience teaching Latin and other classical studies like ancient history and mythology.

I have a knack for understanding how individuals learn and have been able to apply their own learning methods to the subject at hand to give them a better and more understanding experience.
