Bio

Throughout my high-school and college education, I encountered a curious paradox in some of my classes: Some teachers seemed to believe that the more difficult it was to pass their courses, the better the quality of the education they were providing.

Throughout my high-school and college education, I encountered a curious paradox in some of my classes: Some teachers seemed to believe that the more difficult it was to pass their courses, the better the quality of the education they were providing. It was almost as if making the taught subjects more accessible and understandable implied a subpar learning experience, and therefore placing obstacles in the students’ learning process was a way to guarantee the course kept being a hurdle to overcome and therefore a "good" academic lesson. This baffled me from the moment I witnessed it for the first time. Teachers at any level of education should not strive to place more obstacles and difficulties in the way of learning, but rather help each individual student tear down their own personal difficulties in the way of understanding. Teachers are not here to add stones and hedges to the path, they are here to show students how to part the branches themselves and signal out the great discoveries await past the bramble.

In my nearly six years of experience as a personalized online math tutor, this is exactly what I have strived to achieve with each of my students. My classes are always oriented around two fundamental principles: Individuality and interactivity. In short, each student is different and has a unique method and pacing for optimal learning, and a hands-on interactive learning experience beats a purely exposition-based lesson. I view teaching not only as providing the tools and the expertise a student needs to learn, but also as fostering each and every student’s confidence and curiosity towards learning. I do not aspire for my students to simply know how to tackle a topic. I also aspire for them to trust in their own individual ability to tackle intellectual challenges by themselves, and to light that spark of curiosity and inquiry that will drive them to apply their knowledge and abilities towards their own individual goals and objectives in learning.

I was a Kumon Math Club graduate at the age of 14,
