Biomedical Engineering student offering Mathematics lessons to middle and high school-aged students in Vermont with 5 years experience

Methodology

I tailor my teaching style based on the students' needs and questions. I usually start up by inquiring about the students' background knowledge on a topic and I work up from where they were at. Being a student myself, I always place myself in my students' shoes and explain concept I think might be confusing to the student.

Background

I am a Senior Biomedical Engineering student with a minor in Computer Science. Throughout my college years, I've found explaining to other students fun and interesting as I use it as a learning tool for me. Also, over Summer 2018, I was a Precalculus teaching assistant for a University Preparation Program. I worked with the students after class with assignments and further help.
