About this tutor

I am currently a College student studying Geoscience/Physics at Drexel University. I have previous interned at the Environmental Defense Fund in China, which has given me some insight on the work culture there.

During high school, I taught elders English at a local Chinese school. Here, I learned to be patient and to teach one-to-one. Outside of that, most of my tutoring skills have come from tutoring my own little sister. I believe I can transfer the experience I have gained to tutoring others.

Outside of my majors, I have a passion for history, particularly American History and have extensively studied the American Civil War. I am currently working on two passion projects, a small text-based game in the topic and a 6mm wargame on the Anglo-Zulu war

My mail goal is to make sure I can effectively teach what I know to others while reinforcing my own knowledge on the topic.

There are two main reasons I enjoy what I do. First, I love to ramble about topics that interest me and tutoring helps me transfer my own knowledge to others. Second, I enjoy helping others slowly come to understand a topic and seeing things "click" for them.

How did you get started teaching?

I got started with my little sister and just helping a few friends. I was able to help my sister and friends successfully grasp the concepts that they needed help on (mainly math for my little sister and music with my friends). During my junior year of high school, I begin teaching elders at my local Chinese school English and kept the position until graduating from high school.

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

What topics are you having trouble with? 
Oftentimes, the root of understanding something starts with the basic foundations of any given topic. If you are having trouble, how well do you know the foundations of the topic?
