I'm a recent graduate of Oregon State University in the field of Chemical Engineering. I've learned a lot these last four years, and I'm looking forward to passing on what I've learned to you.
I always studied in college with my friends, so communal learning is one of my strong suits. In college, I studied science and mathematics primarily, but my interests also lie in English and music. I feel competent in all of those fields, but mathematics is the easiest for me to explain. I have always tested very well, partially due to my equanimity, but also due to the years of test prep classes I took before the PSAT and SAT. I can share strategies that I was taught which should help you score a few extra points.
The way I see education is as a progression. You can't learn it all in one day, so you have to get used to growing your knowledge base from previous learning. I find that the best way to remember things that I've learned is to keep them relevant by thinking about practical applications of each knowledge. Often in doing so, you will be able to predict what the next step to learn is. My teaching style follows this methodology. In each lesson, I like to review from what we have previously learned, and try to build on the concepts which we will learn in the lesson. I try to engage different learning styles through parables, and physical experiments.
