I graduated with a bachelors degree in mathematics in 2020, but I have had a passion for logic and mathematics for as long as I can remember. More importantly, I enjoy puzzling about how we reason and learning the various patterns in the way each of us learn and process.

Ages I've worked with: 

I have worked with students ranging from early elementary school to college level.

My tutoring style: 

I have a lot to say on teaching the specifics of logic and math, or what it really means to reason abstractly and thinking deep on simple things; I believe any one can improve on their math skills if they know their mind well and have patience and dedication.

Connecting with a student and forming a student-mentor relationship is arguably more important. Sometimes minds drift on personal matters and when bad days happen we lose motivation and focus, but there should be patience and rapport in the relationship, not an intense focus on getting the thing done. To quickly capture what just working on a math problem with me would be like, is to say that I make sure that every part of the problem the student feels confused on is addressed and I take the time to plug any holes in knowledge. While working through a geometry problem there may be some algebra from last semester which has been forgotten or was never understood in the first place.

Success story: 

I’ve often had new students come in to tutor with me who have fallen behind an entire class for various reasons and want to catch up to where their age group should be. One student I remember had missed an entire semester of algebra due to medical reasons, and needed help not only finishing the first semester on time, but the second as well. I remember at first she did not believe in her mathematical ability and found the whole thing to be confusing, but she was willing to work with me and put in the effort because she knew it was important to learn algebra well and finish her classes. She took good notes, listened to my advice and understood her thinking patterns. Over time, she needed less and less help from me, made ever increasing leaps in understanding and eventually even began correcting slip ups I would make (this is the best sign). She finished her missed semester of Algebra in time with a good grade and went straight through to her next semester and achieved her goal.
