I have always been strongly interest in teaching, tutoring family friends and working as a tennis instructor at a tennis camp when I was in high school. As an undergraduate I tutored high school students in physics for a year and spent 3 years on a science fair outreach program. I was paired with an underprivileged middle school student and would help the student determine a science project, run the experiment, and present it at a science fair, while demonstrating how exciting and engaging science can be. I've spent the last year working for a tutoring company tutoring in test prep (SAT and ACT) and academics (Physics, Math, Statistics) and tutoring some students with mild learning disabilities (e.g. ADHD, dyslexia) These experiences have allowed me to develop ample skills in tailoring my teaching and perspective to each student; so I can explain concepts in terms the student will understand and engage with, no matter what the student’s background and interests are. This combined with my patience, genuine interest in teaching, learning, and academics allows me to ensure that my students not only learn the material but enjoy it.
