I am a graduate student at UT who does math and physics tutoring in Austin. My teaching experience includes, in addition to tutoring independently, working at a local SAT prep/tutoring business and serving as a teaching assistant at UT. At the tutoring business, I taught summer classes and designed the lessons, homework, and tests to go along with those classes, so I can do more than just help with homework. My students have come from UT, ACC, Westlake HS, Westwood HS, LASA, and many other schools.
My education includes a Bachelor's in chemical engineering from UT with a 3.9 GPA. My tests scores include a perfect score on the GRE Math section and a 98th percentile score on the GRE Verbal section. I'm currently in graduate school for engineering.
I know what it takes to succeed in math and science classes and I have helped many students do it. My main strategy is to start from simple examples and work up to difficult problems, showing where each technique is necessary and showing that the difficult problems often have the same framework as the simple ones. I have taken all of the courses that I tutor and I am still taking math classes in graduate school, so I understand the constant struggle to learn new material and solve difficult problems.
