About Roy


Bio

I graduated Cum Laude in the top three of my class at Wyoming Seminary, where I also received the full scholarship for four years. This past year I attended Rice University where I am studying Electrical Engineering, with a minor in Neuroscience. I look to continue academic success as I enter my second year.

I graduated Cum Laude in the top three of my class at Wyoming Seminary, where I also received the full scholarship for four years. This past year I attended Rice University where I am studying Electrical Engineering, with a minor in Neuroscience. I look to continue academic success as I enter my second year.

I began officially tutoring my Sophomore year of high school, but I always enjoyed helping other students and answering questions they have. My tutoring style is adapted after my favorite teacher, who focused on asking questions to determine a student's thought process and so they could reach their own conclusion. However, understanding that method is not effective for everyone I also incorporate demonstrations and focus my language so that concepts are easy to understand. Seeing a student understand a concept or master a technique is one of my true joys.

Math has always been my strongest subject, and I always look to help others improve their own math skills and think about problems in different ways. I have experience tutoring Calculus, Precalculus, Trigonometry, and Algebra, as well as ACT and SAT. I earned full scores on all my standardized math tests: 36 on the ACT, 800 on the SAT and SAT II Math, and scored a 5 on both AP Calculus AB and BC.

My primary goal is to help students improve and reach their own goals so I am always flexible and adapt every lesson to students' individual needs. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions you may have or if you would like to schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!
