I am a recent college graduate with degrees in physics and astrophysics. I work for a technology startup in St Paul, and aim to attend graduate school in technology policy. I began tutoring in high school, and have since continued enjoyed helping my peers to see a puzzle in a new light. From four summers as a leadership camp counselor, I have gained confidence working one-on-one with a student to help them consider new perspectives, and from four years of discussion sections in college where I presented solutions to the class I have learned to present my work cleanly and comprehensibly.

What is your teaching philosophy?
The first step is listening and learning where the student is in their understanding of the topic. Then I work with the student to find a new way to look at the problem that helps them understand similar problems in future.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
It's all about learning the process that leads to a solution. If I can help a student find a new path to a solution within their preferred learning style, they can take that thought process and apply it in other scenarios.
