Private tutor in Boston, MA
University: Wentworth Institute of Technology Degree: B. Sci in Electrical Eng. Technology Graduating Year: 2016 GPA: 3.8
My Story: It all started during the Spring of 2013, where my entire class was failing Circuit Theory II (only slightly exaggerating). I happened to stumble across some of these students after class during one of their self-formed study groups and decided to join them. Along with a close friend of mine, we facilitated the study groups to help my peers get up to speed with the subject and stay on curve as the semester progressed. I still host these study groups only a bi-weekly/monthly basis for catch-up lessons as well as test preparations. My Qualifications: 3 years of tutoring experience 3.6 GPA (starting with a 2.5) Deans List, Spring 2013 - Summer 2015 My Relevant Traits: Test taking skill (is off the roof) Visual learner/teacher Ability to simplify complicated problems "There is no 1-2-3 with learning" attitude Funny (trust me, this is VERY relevant) Most importantly, I used to struggle to understand class material. I was able to overcome this by taking a different approach to learning- which helped me develop my own problem solving method.

I moved to the United States with my Mom when I was 6 years old. The first few years in my new English speaking schools were arguably the toughest years of my life. Communication was the hardest part of my childhood, as it played a major role in my developing my introvert self. Because of this, I had few friends growing up. During these years, I would spend my time alone playing video games. I've played just about every game on every console ever since the Nintendo 64. These years where I would get lost in my own little virtual world slowly came to an end as my English improved. With each passing day, I found that communicating with my peers and making friends wasn't as daunting as it used to be. The introduction of friends in my life opened me up to a whole new world. A world in which I was able to confidently speak, interact, and laugh with other people. It allowed me to explore new hobbies such as drawing, dancing, snowboarding, and FOOD EXPLORATION (drools). Things that I would never attempt before became less intimidating as I made friends who were willing to attempt it with me. The introduction of others in my life helped me discover my sense of self as well as community. It's also the reason I used to slack off so much in school, but that's another story.
