I have been helping my fellow students informally since the start of high school. After graduating from MIT I feel like I can continue to assist others with a desire to learn and excel. I understand that some, if not many, students benefit greatly from a more one-on-one learning approach and I look forward to passing on my knowledge and the study skills I have learned to the next generation.

It is true, I spent a good deal of time sending messages on my phone. This is however due to the student coming to the lesson completely unprepared. I was told that chemistry help was needed and when I arrived she had no idea what topics she wanted covered and spent at least 20 minutes just flipping through the book looking for what it was she wanted to study. When we finally came to a topic she needed help I was happy to help her and explain what she was doing wrong. However she was so frazzled by not having come in with an idea of what she wanted to go over that she shortened the lesson and promised to come back the next day with a clear plan. Then she sends a text the next morning cancelling the lesson. I say all this to say, if you come in with questions or topics then I am happy to help and focus in on what is troubling you but you have to give me an idea of how to help you. Know what you need when you show up.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring students for over a year now. I have a good idea of how to connect with kids and understand what is giving them trouble and help to fix the issues they are having with their school work.
