More About Me
Aside from helping my students achieve their goals, I enjoy tutoring because it allows me to show a nerdier side of myself.
Throughout my life and even now as I prepare for a future practicing law, I have been driven by a desire for insight, to uncover the most reasonable “why?” behind ideas both in and out of the classroom.
When it comes to teaching math, this often translates into my students hearing careful explanations for seemingly simple questions, as I value building sound fundamentals in approaching more complicated problems.
Having a few basic ideas to relate back to can make a huge difference when time is a factor, and I want to help build each of my students that foundational reference.
Undergraduate University: University of Virginia
Year of Graduation: 2019
Year of Graduation:
Since I can remember, I have always challenged myself academically. In high school, I took the maximum allowed number of AP classes each year while also taking college level research and mathematics classes at my local governor’s school. I graduated in the top 1% of my class and passed 9 AP exams, receiving 5’s in AP Environmental Science, AP European History, AP Statistics and AP Language. I scored a 34 on the ACT and enrolled at the University of Virginia where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. My testing skills are still sharp, as I prepare to take the LSAT once more before law school.
I work as a private tutor, helping students meet their standardized testing goals. My students have enjoyed my patient attitude and ability to offer insightful explanations. Tutoring subjects: Pre-Calculus courses leading up to AB/BC Calculus, AB/BC Calculus or College equivalent English/Composition (high school) ACT/SAT Subject SAT (Math I & II)
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
My first teaching experience was in high school, where I had the opportunity to volunteer for my golf course’s annual children’s clinics. I helped area kids learn the fundamentals of the golf swing in addition to the rules and etiquette of golf. I have logged additional volunteer hours at various local charities, but my time at those children’s clinics is where I believe I had the biggest impact. I didn’t always have access to sports like golf growing up, and I only wish more kids would have that opportunity.
