I deliver in-depth coverage of various subjects, while focusing on student growth and understanding. I will help students fulfill their potential in learning by making it fun, and comprehensive. I have been an honor roll student throughout my school career, and have a lot of experience in many subjects (including AP courses).
My goal is to share my knowledge with my students, and show them that learning is something they should enjoy and take pride in. I enjoy teaching because it is very fulfilling and satisfying to assist students in their journeys through school. It is also very important that students not only learn the content they are being tested on, but also develop critical thinking skills along the way.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process for working with a new student starts with a brief conversation to understand their learning style and what they might struggle with. Afterwards, we will follow a lesson plan depending on what subject they need help with. During these lessons they will be provided with questions to solve in order to check their understanding of the subject. They may also ask any questions they please along the way if they need clarification.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have experience in all basic high school math and science courses as well as some AP courses. I have gained experience from assisting my peers in their studies, and at times assisting teachers in their lessons. Please note that I also teach students at a lower level, such as middle school.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Lessons vary in price depending on the subject the student needs help in. For all middle school (grades 6-8) level courses, the base rate is $20 an hour. For all high school courses up to honors level the base rate is $25 an hour. For AP courses, the base rate is $30 an hour. Arrangements can be made for multiple lessons at a discounted price. Personalized quizzes and assignments are included in this hourly rate.
How did you get started teaching?
I got started teaching by helping out my peers in and outside of school hours.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
A recent event that brought me great satisfaction was being informed by one of my students that they had gotten an A on their physics exam after our lesson. This student had previously failed their exams and had an extremely poor overall grade in the class.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something. Also, don't hesitate to give your feedback after a lesson.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What is your goal for this lesson? What is it that you are having a hard time with? How would you like to learn? Which specific area of the subject would you like to learn about?
