I have always enjoyed helping others succeed academically, and tend to help fellow peers in many of my classes. My favorite subjects are mathematics and science, but I am also interested in arts, literature, and business. I graduated high school as valedictorian, while also being a member of national honors society and various extracurricular clubs.

I am currently a college student majoring in Environmental Engineering with a minor in finance. I have always enjoyed helping others succeed academically, and tend to help fellow peers in many of my classes. My favorite subjects are mathematics and science, but I am also interested in arts, literature, and business. I graduated high school as valedictorian, while also being a member of national honors society and various extracurricular clubs.

I have a lot of experience with peer to peer teaching, which is how I developed my teaching skills. Many of my fellow students in high school and college came to me for help in their classes after they noticed my strong work ethic and ability to teach others in an approachable way.

One of the most important things I have learned throughout my education is that when I struggled with something, I found that it was necessary to get help from someone who had been through that class before. Peer to peer tutoring is one of the most effective forms of tutoring, which is why I am so passionate about tutoring other students, old or young. When it comes to tutoring, I take a hands on approach. I teach the student one on one and then observe and guide them through the practice problems. When I feel that the student understands the concept, I will take a step back and provide some more challenging problems to ensure the student is ready to move on.

I have always loved mathematics, simply because it was the most challenging subject for me. As I worked hard to understand the subject and improve my study habits, I saw my grades improve more and more. Ever since, I have been able to be successful in all of my math courses.

I am very easy to talk to and would encourage you to try my tutoring as it will improve your grade as well help you get a better understanding of how to handle a difficult or unfavorable subject. I am very much looking forward to helping you succeed!
