I developed a passion for teaching starting in high school. I had a chance to be a one-on-one tutor during my senior year and I also was a Teaching Assistant for general chemistry at different levels (honors level and lower). In college, I continued some teaching with summertime tutoring in math and physics, and during graduate school, I was a Teaching Assistant for two semesters in beginning civil/environmental engineering classes.
I have been told that I have a natural teaching ability by teachers, students, and peers. Nothing that I have done up until this point has given me the same happiness and satisfaction as when I am teaching. In particular, I really enjoy teaching students one-on-one because I enjoy teaching someone in the way that works best with their learning abilities and seeing them grow into better problem solvers and students.
I have a lot of experience taking math courses and teaching them as well. I know that sometimes math can be intimidating to students, but I like to tutor math because it is amazing to see how much joy the student gets once he/she has really mastered the topic. Math is very much like a puzzle, and what students need is the proper tools and strategies to approach these problems, and that's where I will be able to help.
Over the course of my academic career I have also taken many science courses. I have the most experience tutoring chemistry and physics, but there are other topics that I have taught as well. Similarly to math, taking the topic back to its building blocks and understanding the strategies and problem solving skills is where I can be of great help for students.
I am greatly looking forward to meeting with you and working together. I have a very flexible schedule so I am happy to work at times that are most convenient for you.

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 have extensive math knowledge from pursuing my PhD in engineering. I have tutored many math courses from high school through college in a one-on-one setting including Algebra I. I enjoy teaching math at all levels because I like to share the joy of learning and solving problems with students who are struggling with the subject.
Math is one of my strongest subjects from pursuing my PhD in engineering. I have tutored students of all levels in a one-on-one setting for Algebra II. I enjoy teaching math because I like to see students grow and become better problem solvers and strategist which also tends to help them with other subjects.
