Loves tutoring because:"The main reason why I teach and tutor is that I always want to help a student who is willing to learn, but may not have the tools to do so. Most of the subjects I tutor I initially had trouble learning. Therefore, I have a personal connection to a student who may be struggling in a certain topic in physics or trying to apply a formula in math. I know all of the common mistakes, and the best tricks to learn a tough topic. I always look for that "a-ha" moment in a student when they are having difficulty with a certain topic, and then master it without any hesitation. I look for students to become excited about learning and not dread it. Seeing that is what makes motivates me to tutor."

A fun fact: I built my own gaming computer from scratch. It was both fun and exhausting!
Physics, Chemistry, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, SAT prep
Loves tutoring because: “I teach because I believe that I can help students better understand the subject than from their classroom lessons. In a classroom setting, it is easy for a teacher to bypass a certain topic, or the whole subject, as he or she brings the one-size-fits-all method of teaching. I know that every student is an individual and are bound to be different from others, and may struggle in one area where others excel. It's only fair that these students get a chance to fully understand the subject, because without it, they may have an even much harder time in the future."

Loves tutoring because: “I teach because it is fulfilling to contribute to the development of someone else's academic and intellectual aspirations. It is a powerful moment to see a student grow and learn a principal or idea. I am pursuing a PhD degree but cannot imagine not remaining involved in teaching, as it is both rewarding as I have described and reminds me the importance of learning and the student/teacher relationship."

A fun fact: In college I was a member of a improvisational comedy troupe and appeared in a few Hollywood movies immediately after graduating college. Although I have "retired" I continue to try and make people (my students included!) laugh and have a great time. I've found that the stress and intensity of tutoring can be eased significantly by keeping things jovial and fun.

Loves tutoring because: “I teach because I find it very fun. When I was little, I always thought about how great it would be to design my own classes, and I enjoyed seeing what my best teachers did to get the class's attention and respect. I also paid attention to what didn't work, namely expecting respect based on authority. My philosophy is always to work from a more conceptual side of things and make sure that I'm addressing students' questions with a very conceptual, understanding-based approach. If they have a question, it's up to me to convince them that our approach is valid. I try to never make students accept new information as an article of faith. Instead, I try to find examples that they may have already seen and introduce the motivation for considering the problem in the new way. Happily, I can indulge in this approach in one-on-one sessions."
