## About

As a recent youth development mentor with 8+ years of tutoring experience, I have worked with a variety of students between the elementary school curriculum to AP/Honors high school courses. I am committed to helping students achieve their academic and individual goals. My goal is to encourage all students to spark their self-confidence and curiosity in any subject, regardless of their background or any challenges that may prevent them from doing so.

## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I tend to get to know the student's current struggles, what their goals are, and formulate a game plan to help them achieve stated goals. Whether it is to move to a more advanced course in the future, passing an exam, laying a more solid foundation in particular concepts, I will do my best to adapt to their needs and help them excel academically and personally.

### What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Since my sophomore year of high school, I have been tutoring fellow peers during after-school hours as well as my teammates in basketball. I've since expanded via teachers' and parents' referrals through word-of-mouth, assisting students from Pre-Algebra up to AP Calculus BC, and SAT math prep.

### Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Depending on the subject, my prices range from $16-30/hour

### How did you get started teaching?

I found that I learned best from my upperclassmen, they translated difficult concepts into digestible language and analogies for me, and I wish to do the same to help others.

### What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a wide range of students, from those whose English language is limited, to those with ADD, and honors/AP students.

### Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I've recently become a pawrent to a french bulldog! He came home at 2 months at the end of the summer and is currently 6 months old. Training him every hour, to now several hours in between, has been an exhausting but rewarding and heartwarming experience.

### What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask your potential tutor alot of questions, and try to be as specific as possible! Every individual has their own perspectives and thought process, so one method of explaining may mesh better with you than another's. As for being specific, for example, it helps us, as tutors when you ask:

"I'm unsure why I can form a slope intercept form from a graph." vs. "I don't know what slope-intercept form is."

The more you pin down what concept or detail you don't get, the more likely we can help you get over that obstacle!

### What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Have I seen these type of problems before in previous homework, classwork, or notes?

Did my teacher give me resources through videos or my textbook to tackle this?

If I go through this step-by-step, what step did I get stuck on?
