I'm excited to be your tutor! I recently graduated college in the top 10% of my class. I'm very familiar with what courage it takes to ask for help in a subject because I have gotten tutoring for a subject I struggled with. No one is perfect at everything, and learning how to ask for help will make you a stronger student and better prepare you for the real world. Self-improvement is what is most important here; not comparing yourself to others. I am a firm believer that the best way to learn is whatever works for YOU, and while finding those study techniques may take some trial and error, in the end, you will learn not only the subject you're being tutored in, but also more about yourself. I bet you'll find that you're better at that subject than you thought! No one is simply "bad" at a subject; it's just that they haven't found how that subject clicks with them yet. That's why I'm here!

What is your teaching philosophy?
A teacher's job is to empower the student to find the answer on their own. The teacher should create an environment where no question is a stupid question and every bit of progress, no matter how small, is celebrated.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I'd like to get a better idea of what their specific problem areas are, where their strengths lie, and what goals they have in this subject.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I want to help you discover how you learn best so that you're empowered to teach yourself. I'll be there along the way to answer any questions, but I want you to feel confident on your own!
