My Education: Learning doesn't have to be constrained by others expectations. My high school learning environment included tutoring, classroom instruction and independent learning in equal parts. I understand the advantages of each and how they can benefit a particular student's learning style. I enjoy the challenge of finding alternative ways to present different ideas.
Age 10: Tutoring and independent study enabled me to score in the 50th percentile on the SAT (math- 650)
Age 16: Oglethorpe University: Differential and Integral calculus (calc. I &II). Physics I and II.
Age 17: Georgia State University: Multivariate calculus. Differential equations. Vector calculus. Microeconomics. Macroeconomics. Statistics.
Age 21: Took the GRE in order to pursue attending graduate school for a Masters in Economics, scored in the 97th and 95th percentiles for the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections respectively.
Age 18 to present: Attended Rice University as a student-athlete who graduated with a 3.53, while majoring in Mathematical Economic Analysis.
- I was pleasantly introduced to the experience of tutoring someone a few summers ago, and haven't stopped tutoring since. It started when my friend was taking a Calculus I class at a local university. She had minimal background in precalculus and trigonometry and had not taken a math class in over a year. Despite these obstacles, she ended up with an A as her final grade. I really enjoyed the experience. I enjoyed the challenge of finding new ways to present the material when she initially had a difficult time understanding it. I honestly felt that she understood the material after I had tutored her.
- Since then, I have been tutoring through WyzAnt in both the Houston and Atlanta locations for 20+ hours. I have also tutored and advised fellow student athletes at Rice university through the the athletic department. I have tutored in subjects ranging from middle school math to multivariable calculus, from SAT prep to GRE prep, statistics, and economics.
Extracurricular: I enjoy playing the piano and listening to classical music along with having taken multiple music theory classes, and I completely enjoy athletic activities. I enjoy the competition as well as the camaraderie. Baseball has become my main focus, but previously, I had obtained a black belt in tae kwon do and was the Georgia state champion in the 50 meter freestyle event. Later, I was fortunate enough to represent the United States as part of the 16u and 18u gold medal USA Baseball Teams. I have recently graduated from Rice University where I was a member of the Varsity Baseball Team.
