"Don't give up. Don't ever give up!" - Jimmy Valvano in his 1993 ESPY Speech

Jimmy Valvano gave one of the most influential speeches in pop culture a mere eight weeks before he lost his battle with cancer. I reference back to this speech on a consistent basis to not only motivate myself but also those around me.

"Don't give up. Don't ever give up!" - Jimmy Valvano in his 1993 ESPY Speech

Jimmy Valvano gave one of the most influential speeches in pop culture a mere eight weeks before he lost his battle with cancer. I reference back to this speech on a consistent basis to not only motivate myself but also those around me. Throughout high school I served on many positions while maintaining a stellar GPA and eventually went on to proceed to Rutgers University. To name a few of the positions I was fortunate to serve under I was named class president all four years of my attendance, a peer mediator, a member of the majority of honors classes offered at my high school. During my junior year, I was offered membership into the National Honor Society, where I was given the opportunity to tutor a plethora of my peers in various subjects most notably mathematics and sciences.

My course transcript includes:
Math: Up to Calculus I
Science: All sciences up to Physics
English: The majority of the classics including Shakespearean and Greek plays
Computers: Most Microsoft office applications
Languages: 2 years of French and 5 years of Spanish

My Tutoring methods typically include the use of practice problems, recitation, and careful walkthroughs of the material. To make the subject more enjoyable I tend to include real life occurrences of the information, while also maintaining an enjoyable learning environment which proves to assist in the information sticking to the students as well.

Basketball

Basketball is a huge part of my life and has always been. Since elementary school I played on various travelling teams, and AAU teams before playing in high school. Outside of my involvement on teams I was also a temporary manager for the Rutgers Women's Basketball team. Currently, my involvement in basketball is limited to coaching the youth through a third party company and assisting in the development of the game my brother and his teammates.
