EducationRice University - BA, Cognitive Sciences
ExperienceDuring my time at Rice University, I double-majored in religious studies and cognitive sciences. This is where the skill to think critically became my forte. When I tutor, I promote the skill to approach problems from different views. I believe that this should allow them to find a relationship to the problem, which will then cement the idea to their individual learning process. Goal setting is a very effective tool that I use with my students. When presented with ways that they can approach their academic goals, their level of self discipline rises and a satisfaction is achieved as they check off their accomplishments. I enjoy teaching a variety of subjects, but have a couple that I favor: reading and writing. I also have extensive experience in test prep: ACT, PSAT, ISEE, SAT, etc. Because these tests come with a high level of stress, creating a teaching environment that lessens this worry is part of my tutoring sessions. When I am not tutoring, you'll find my head in a book or writing my own short stories. I also love to play rugby, BMX race, and snowboard.
