ExperienceFor me, tutoring is a most rewarding experience because since I have studied so many different subjects, there is no way that I could have been naturally gifted at all or even most of them. Indeed, I have found many of these subjects daunting and difficult at first, and have had to try all sorts of different learning/studying strategies to better understand them. Thus, I truly know how it feels to be a student who may be struggling with a particular subject, and can therefore be of better service to my students. I have found that being naturally proficient at a given subject actually makes it more difficult to tutor in that subject, because the tutor is less able to connect with how the student feels. To be a truly great tutor, one must understand exactly what it means and how it feels to struggle with, and ultimately overcome the difficulties of each subject area. I feel like I have that ability, and my past students have all seen dramatic improvements in their academic performance as a result of my mentorship.
SAT Score: 2340; AP Scores: Score of 5 on 7 different subjects, including U.S. History, Literature, Biology, Physics B, Physics C, Calculus BC, and English Language.
HobbiesI'm a HUGE music enthusiast, almost as as much as I am a food enthusiast. I'm frequently reading articles on The Atlantic or Politico, or eating pizza. Overall, I am a very easygoing person who gets along with pretty much everyone I've ever met. I'm always willing to talk about politics, music, sports, life, or really anything. My shelves at home are filled with books on everything from the Beatles to Chinese Tea therapies, but please rest assured that I will not attempt to turn tutoring lessons into Beatles discussions or tea therapy sessions.
