UCLA grad with 5 years of experience tutoring college, high school and middle school students

Methodology

I first gauge where the student is at, specifically with regards to the students' familiarity with the content they want to master, their learning habits, and attitude. I then communicate with the student about what teaching methodologies have worked best in the past to try it out. If the method is unsuccessful/inaccurate, we will work together to find a method that works, whether it be utilizing additional visual/auditory information, charts, additional practice material, etc.

Background

I am a UCLA graduate with a degree in Physiological Science. I was chosen as a Learning Facilitator in college, and have 5 years of experience in teaching. I teach because I find it rewarding to help someone understand and master knowledge that will lead them towards creating a better future for themselves as well as the greater community.
