About this tutor

I am currently a graduate student. As an undergraduate student at the BA/MD program at Brooklyn College, I earned my Biology, B.S., and Chemistry B.A. while completing a premed track. I have been tutoring on and off for about 6 years now, and have experience in elementary math, algebra 1/2, trigonometry, calculus, etc. Not only have I been a private tutor, but I have also been a tutor for General Chemistry at Brooklyn College, therefore acquiring techniques that I find to be effective when teaching my students. In fact, I have moved students from the B/C range, up to an A. 

Having been a student of science and the liberal-arts field, I feel that my approach to subjects is versatile and relatable to students. I myself have been tutored for some of my favorite subjects (such as chemistry and physics), and I know that it was the enthusiasm and motivation of my tutors that helped me develop a passion and talent for these subjects.

I hope, during my tutoring session, not only to help the student with their areas of concern but also to instill confidence and help them develop a passion for learning and understanding, no matter what the subject may be. 

I thoroughly enjoy watching students grow from, "I don't understand this and therefore I hate it" to "Wow, I am so glad that I can see [insert subject here] from this angle! It is so fascinating."

I think that some of the most talents students develop their passions through struggling, and then finding the beauty of that struggle when they finally change their way of thinking in order to see new aspects of the same things. See that realization, that light-bulb go off -- that is why I love to teach.

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

For new students, I like to set-up a phone call just to get to know the needs and personal interests of the student. After learning a bit about each other and making sure we are a good fit, we can move onto planning a session together!
