Mathematics and Biological Sciences undergrad offering tutoring in STEM fields at the high school level and below

Methodology

As a tutor, I strive towards giving my students the ability to apply their knowledge to many situations. This skill is crucial as often the greatest struggle for students is when their test contains problems based on content they understand but is presented in a way they have never seen before. To enable students to do well on these types of problems, my tutoring sessions include lot of practice problems which get at ambiguous cases to general rules. I have found that learning how to do the "tricky" problem always leads to a deeper understanding.

Background

I have served as a tutor throughout my high school career, ultimately becoming the president of my high school's chapter of National Honor Society. While I have the ability to tutor in any STEM related class at the high school or middle school level, I specialize in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physical Sciences
