I graduated magna cum laude from The University of Texas at Austin with my bachelor's in biomedical engineering with a technical emphasis in software engineering. I now work full time as a software engineer, but it's not quite quenching my thirst for helping others. Before I went to college, I attended the Texas Academy of Math and Science (TAMS) where I graduated with honors at the top of my class.
While I was ultimately academically successful, that wasn't without a bit of struggle. I know what it's like to have a teacher or professor seemingly explain something only to get home and realize I don't have any idea how to do my homework. Many teachers don't understand all of the different ways that students can come to understand a topic, so they only explain it one way and then only some students are able to comprehend. As an engineer, I love thinking of different ways to explain how things work or how to solve a problem. There's nothing more gratifying than seeing my students finally understand something in a way that they'll remember it later!
While I was at TAMS, I held multiple tutoring positions. I volunteered to tutor middle school math, college algebra, biology, and physics. I also worked as a private tutor teaching geometry and SAT math. Last year, I started working as a private tutor again teaching 5th grade math.
I've tutored for a total of about 5 years with my students reporting back receiving higher test scores and greater confidence in their math abilities.
