I graduated in Spring 2012 from UW-Parkside with a Bachelor of Science
degree as an Accounting
major with an Economics
minor. I am now working in the taxation industry. While juggling classes at UW-Parkside from 2009 to 2012, I worked as a tutor with the UW-Parkside Tutoring Center. I love sharing knowledge, and I find that tutoring is the perfect opportunity for me to do so. I aim to be a patient, compassionate, and approachable tutor.
My main goal as a tutor is to help students achieve their own learning independence. I am here to "open one's eyes" about the value of learning and not do the learning for students. There is a sense of fulfillment when one achieves his or her own independence is what I hope every student leaves with after I meet with them. The learning style I emphasize is memory association and rote learning. In math
for example, there's the pneumonic device "PEMDAS" that helps students remember the order of operations. "It's all relative" as they say, and many things in life truly are. When we make associations to things we are already familiar with, certain situations and criteria become less daunting and we instead embrace such situations with confidence unlike before. I strive to help students make sense of their homework problems and how to reach solutions using a logical approach instead of enforcing pure memorization. Just as knowing our purpose enables us to become better versions of ourselves, knowing why we do what we do to solve a problem enables us to enhance our learning capabilities.
My next life goals are to become a CPA
, work for an accounting firm, and enjoy life with a little karaoke every now and then.
Learning how to learn is key, despite any subject. I am here to help you realize your potential.
So Call Me, Maybe!
