*Note: The three 4-star ratings were from the same person about 3 years ago. I had just started tutoring back then.
I am a recent Statistics M.S. graduate from SDSU, and I also have a Mathematics B.S. from UCSD. Not only do I enjoy teaching, but I also like to get to know my students and let them have a fun time.
During my time at SDSU, I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant where I taught a small supplemental course on basic statistics and tutored students one-on-one (or up to a 5-person group) for additional help. Before SDSU, I have tutored college students (including working professionals re-entering school) in mainly algebra.
My approach to teaching is letting students know the tips and tricks to understanding math/stats. Here are some of the tricks:
- Is there a way to visualize the problem? Often, in statistics, certain keywords can be replaced with graphs to better see a way to a solution.
- Are there any keywords in the word problem to focus on? Word problems can seem daunting but students can learn how to break down the word problem.
- Are there any real life examples to understand certain concepts? For example, probability tends to be a relatively abstract concept in itself, but real life examples allow students to understand the concept. *Note: The three 4-star ratings were from the same person about 3 years ago.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I understand several art concepts, such as perspective, contrast, composition, subject matter, and know how to implement them into art. I have been drawing since I was very young and have transitioned from drawing anime to nudes and short stories. In college, I joined the student organization OutReach Through Art, where the members helped out the community through art events, such as making arts and crafts with children at a library.
