I'm a college student at Trinity University working on my Bachelors of Arts (yes, arts!) in Physics. Afterwards, I hope to earn my Masters of Arts in Teaching.
I'm passionate and involved with the public education system because of my own experiences. I was diagnosed with ADD the day after sixth grade, but I honestly didn't become academically minded until tenth grade when I took my first AP course. Once I realized that I liked the challenge of interesting classes, I started adapting my study habits. I'm a big note taker, I love mixing data with my own shorthand and snarky comments. I love learning and helping others find ways to feel that same spark when you finally GET IT. I've worked as a private tutor mainly with elementary and early middle school kids. My biggest project in National Honor Society was a tutoring program with the local elementary school. We would go once a week and spend time both one-on-one with students and then in small groups. I mostly worked with students in reading and math. By the way, I went on to become National Honor Society President and I was ranked 8th in my graduating class.
My mom had trouble getting me to do my homework all through school; I had tutors off and on. I know how important finding the right match can be. Personality does play a big part for a lot of students so I'd rather not set up multiple appointments until after an initial meeting or session to make sure the student and I work well together.
More things to know about me: I have a hearing disability but I also have a hearing aid so it shouldn't be a problem. My all time favorite color is green! I love to draw and illustrate. When I'm explaining something, I make a lot of analogies and comparisons. I play bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and ukulele. I love webcomics. As far as popular fandoms go, I am a Ravenclaw (Harry Potter) and an Earthbender (Avatar: the Last Airbender).
I try to make things fun but I know how to get back on track. Please let me know if I can help make your summer academically awesome!
I was diagnosed with ADD the day after sixth grade so I've had to learn how to adjust my studying habits to deal with that. I've had tutors with ADD and it was nice knowing that they had gone through a lot of the same things I dealt with when I was first learning how to adapt. I have tutored kids with ADD before and I hope I gave them the same level of comfort. I feel like ADD can be used to a student's advantage when studying if they know how to work with it and I hope I can help teach students with ADD just how to do that.

I have a hearing disability that become noticeable when I was 16 and I've had a hearing aid since I was about 17. The disability is hereditary so I grew up in a household with a mom who has two very powerful hearing aids so I generally speak clearly and audibly. My disability only affects one ear. I'm not a part of deaf culture and I don't know sign language but I can communicate well and I understand how frustrating having a disability can be.
After I was diagnosed with ADD, I had to learn how to adapt my study habits. Now, in college, I have a specific set up for studying. I have a cushion for my chair because I have different sitting heights for typing and surfing the web, I have specific places for my work depending on the day of the week,and I find the perfect study music that will block out the noise of dorm life but won't distract me from my work. I'm a big note taker and I generally use Cornell style notebooks. I make incentives for myself to finish work and write out daily/weekly/monthly schedules to make sure I get everything done.
