I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering at the top-rated University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and am on the Dean's list. I am a National AP Scholar and was commended by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. I am a competitive swimmer and love to 3D model, do puzzles, and personal projects in my free time. I have always gravitated towards STEM topics and grew to love them as I learned more about them.
I learned early on that you know the material well if you can fully explain a subject to a person and have them understand the topic as a result. Helping my peers became a way for me to solidify my understanding of topics. I have found that I enjoy explaining things to others as much as I love learning about the material in the first place. I also discovered that the best way to explain topics is to break the topic down into its base components and to give connections and similarities to other topics. Building a strong foundation is essential to learning more sophisticated, challenging topics.
I tutor a wide variety of STEM topics, with math, computer science and physics being the academic subjects that I enjoy teaching the most. I understand that everyone learns in different ways and I understand that what works for one learner might not work for another. My goal is to make sure the learner fully understands the topic and can connect it to other topics and not just regurgitate information.
