San Francisco, California
I am a recent graduate from UC Berkeley, and I spent much of that time as a math/engineering teaching assistant. I have tutored professionally for the better part of a decade (9 years) and I continue to do so along side my job because I enjoy it! I love solving puzzles and I love learning about other people. Tutoring combines both – tutoring effectively requires understanding the way you look at problems and your unique experiences in order to cater my explainations towards that. I received outstanding teaching assistant awards with the most common comment from my students being that I’m passionate and energetic about what I do.
I have both pure math and engineering degrees, with a significant emphasis on education. I spent 2 years as a private tutor in high school teaching math and physics, then spent the next 6 years teaching in classroom settings. This required a year long pedagogy seminar where I learned teaching techniques and the research behind them. I met with students for many extra office hours to make sure they were keeping up with the pace of the course. Textbook regurgitation and rote memorization are not the ways to learn, I made sure I let the students engage with the material and held conversations with them, not at them. I ask questions to get students to evaluate their ideas to me, as I believe that is the most important way to engage with any material.
Still not sure if your learning style would fit? Don’t worry, we can have our first meeting before deciding to commit to more meeting times. I am easy to reach and will provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me about tutoring or any other questions you have!
