I am passionate about helping people achieve their goals in school. For the past four years I have been tutoring my peers at Shenendehowa High School and through tutoring in math, science, and computer science classes I discovered my passion for teaching and decided to study education in college. I work at CodeNinjas, a business dedicated to teaching kids ages 7-14 how to program, giving me more expeirence in the education field.
I enjoy helping my students to reach their maximum potential and seeing the first time they fully understand what they are doing.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When introduced to a new student I tell them about my life and teaching experiences to earn their trust and make the more comfortable around me. Then, I ask them questions about their school year and why they are starting tutoring to determine what type of help they need.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been trained as a teacher at Code Ninjas and created a teaching program on my robotics team for unexperienced programmers.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I do not have a pricing system set up for my lessons, I will adjust on a student to student basis.
How did you get started teaching?
I began teaching when I realized how many students were being left behind on my robotics team due to a lack of a teaching program. I created a curriculum to teach basic Java to new students and have been peer tutoring and teaching the class I created since then.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with students from ages 7-16, some of which have mental disabilities.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
When looking for a teacher of any subject you must find someone who can relate to your interests and find at least three different ways to explain every question.

How do you expect your teachers to help you? What topics are you struggling with?
