Bio

I am a college student at Seattle Pacific University. I'm currently working towards a physiology degree and will continue onto medical school when I finish my undergraduate studies. My junior and senior years of high school I took classes at Cascadia Community College through the Running Start program (similar to college in high school). I have always enjoyed math and the sciences and am most knowledgeable in those areas. I have taken the general chemistry sequence and have also gone through...

I am a college student at Seattle Pacific University. I'm currently working towards a physiology degree and will continue onto medical school when I finish my undergraduate studies. My junior and senior years of high school I took classes at Cascadia Community College through the Running Start program (similar to college in high school). I have always enjoyed math and the sciences and am most knowledgeable in those areas. I have taken the general chemistry sequence and have also gone through Calculus 3 at Cascadia. I really enjoy education because it opens up so many doors for people. Some of my professors and teachers have had a big impact on my career choices and interests.

I have tutored students in math and science within the last year. I am often the lead in my study groups at SPU and I am very good at explaining concepts to other students. I have tutored high school students in math before and they always found that their grades improved. I love teaching math and it is a subject that I excel at. What I have found that works best is if a student can give me what topics they are struggling with ahead of time, so when it comes time for the lesson I am prepared and ready to make the most out of the tutoring session. A student I tutored would bring their homework which helped guide the lesson. This helped us focus the session on the teachers curriculum. We worked on homework and studying for tests, going over problems together to ensure understanding. During the same session I would have them work on additional problems to reinforce the concepts that they had difficulty with. I would also bring additional resources for them to use and review with which they found very helpful. I personally believe in looking at the big picture of a topic and figuring out how it works, versus memorizing it. I think this method provides students with a deeper understanding of the material, which I have found results in better grades. I also like to look at problems with a growth mindset and encourage others to do the same. This makes it easier for students to work through difficult problems and concepts they don't yet understand. I also believe it is important to reward the effort students put into their work, not only the result. This method of teaching has been found to increase knowledge, effort and grades because it teaches students not to be discouraged with problems if they do not understand them right away, but to work through them instead.
