## About

My service stands out because of my experience and expertise. I have extensive tutoring experience. I first started tutoring during my freshman year of college, where I helped local high school students with Algebra II. Then, starting in my junior year and continuing through my senior year, I worked at my college's quantitative tutoring center, assisting undergraduates in various statistics and mathematics courses. Some days were slower than others, so I could be doing one-on-one tutoring or applying a triage system to help up to eight students at once. I also have experience in online tutoring when our service moved virtually due to COVID-19.

With five semesters of tutoring experience, I have thoroughly developed my teaching abilities. I know when a student needs to be pushed or when they need space to work on the problem. I ask leading questions to both gauge their understanding and meet them where they are, but also to show them that they really do know how to solve the problem, boosting their confidence when they are on their own. I am friendly and open, which I think is important so that the student feels comfortable learning. I believe my most important skill when it comes to tutoring is my patience. I don't easily give up on my students or get frustrated, and I will try many different approaches to a problem to find the one that works best for them.

I have a passion for tutoring and teaching. To put it simply, I love to teach. I think it is amazing to help people understand complex concepts, and it feels like I am really making a difference in the world. Since I started with those Algebra II high schoolers, I knew that educating would continue to be a part of my life. In fact, my dream is to someday become a professor so that I can make a bigger impact on young minds and the world at large.

## Frequently asked questions

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

My typical process for working with new students is to first understand what they need work on and then meeting them at a level they can understand. This can be achieved by looking at their schoolwork and talking to them about what they want to improve on. Then we will work on problems similar to those topics until I feel comfortable they are really understanding. I ask leading questions so that they find the answers on their own which gives them confidence to do it when I'm not there.

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

I charge $50/hr.

### How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching in my freshman year of undergraduate where I was tutoring local highschoolers in algebra II. It was only for 1 semester, but just from how fulfulling that experience was, I knew I wanted to do it more and more.

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

First, I started with algebra II highschoolers. Later, I worked with college students on undergraduate courses in mathematics and statistics varying from calculus to probability. Now, I'm starting to work with all sorts of ages from elementary to college level.

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

When UNC beat Duke in the NCAA tournament making it to the finals and everyone in Chapel Hill rushed to Franklin Street! Couches were ablaze.

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

My most important piece of advice for a student interested in being tutored is the phrase "you reap what you sow," meaning that you will get out of tutoring exactly how much effort you put in. It's not worth the money if you are not focused on improving your skills.
