More About Me
Tutoring is one my passions in life. I enjoy the process and look for unique ways to explain concepts to my student. Learning can be a fun and enjoyable process when taught right. Throughout my life, I had many amazing teachers that left a mark on me, and I wish to do the same to my students. I have experience tutoring individuals ranging from grade school to college level and look forward to working with you.

Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
1) I was a member of Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity at Cornell that engages in service events in the Cornell campus and greater Ithaca community. I volunteered about 85 hours in various projects throughout my time as member of this organization. 2) During the summer where I stayed at Cornell to do research, I volunteered at the local Christian ministry soup kitchen called Loaves and Fishes twice a week. 3) During that summer, I also acted as an Achievement Coach at and organization called Village at Ithaca, whose mission is to promote excellence and equity in Ithaca and its school system. As an achievement coach, I mentored a high school student in subjects she struggled in (mainly math and SAT) and created a welcoming environment for student to ask questions in a non-judgmental environment to pursue her dreams of higher education. 4) I went on a service trip during winter break Morgantown, West Virginia to assist with construction of a new home for a former drug addict for Habitat for Humanity. Over the course of a week, I and a cohort of other students spent about 8 hours everyday assembling siding, roofing, cutting materials, erecting rooms and sheetrock 5) During the summers away from the University, I volunteer at my local hospital in the Emergency Department where I attended to roles such as escorting patients to their rooms, aiding the nurse and the technicians in cleaning the rooms after stay (bedsheets, pillows, returning wheelchairs, etc.)
