First and foremost, I think the most important tool for learning is being able to ask good questions. Questions show me how to understand students and be a better teacher. For that reason, it is crucial to me that I make students feel comfortable asking questions. Of course, it isn’t always easy for students to explain something that is confusing them, so I also find it important to let students try things on their own and see where in the process they get lost. I don’t just want to teach students to follow the same steps that work for only one type of problem. I want them to understand the concepts behind why something works so that it can be applied to a variety of problems. Students need to not only know how to solve problems but why we solve them in the ways we do.
Also, if a student needs help preparing for standardized tests, I am a very strategic and effective test taker.
I have always been a gifted student, especially when it comes to anything related to math. Classmates seek me out for help on that problem they can’t figure out and I have a standing invitation to any and all study groups. I have tutored honor graduates and people who just need to pass.
I graduated from Homewood High School in 2015 as an honor graduate with enough math credits for two people to graduate. As a top competitor for Homewood’s Math Team, I was instrumental in our four state championships during my time there. Also while in high school, I received college credits in calculus, physics, and statistics. I also tutored fellow students in statistics.
Effective test strategies have carried me far in competitions and standardized tests. With the help of pre-test courses, I got a 33/36 on the ACT overall and a 35/36 in math. All these accomplishments propelled me to a scholarship at Louisiana’s premiere research college, Tulane University. I graduated Cum Laude from Tulane in 2019 with my Bachelor’s in Biomedical Engineering. At Tulane, I succeeded in advanced math courses like Calculus 3, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, and fluid mechanics.
While attending Tulane, I was also in charge of a research project in the Biomedical Acoustics Lab. This meant I mentored and managed five fellow students as my assistants while we performed cutting edge biomedical research.
I believe I excelled in my opportunities to study advanced subjects and teach them to others because of my conceptual thinking. I want to explain not only how something works, but why it works.
