Experienced Johns Hopkins Grad Tutor
Having studied economics, finance, and some engineering at Johns Hopkins, I've experienced academia in a very comprehensive spectrum and have definitely come to know the subjects I most enjoy most as well as those I can teach the best. As a result, I've taught math-based subjects such as physics, algebra, calculus, statistics, micro/macroeconomics, and combinations of these at a college level over the past few years while I was studying in Baltimore. I'm very well-versed with SAT's and any subject under the college level and as someone who struggled to learn it myself without any guidance, I do wish to provide some insight and help others learn one of the tests that could define the next stage in a teenager's life. As a researcher, Johns Hopkins newspaper columnist, public speaker, and freelance copywriter, I know how to effectively craft a message and the grammar technicalities that one must know to do so. As a researcher deciphering complex arguments, data, and publications, I have honed my reading comprehension skills to pick out important parts from a long dissertation in a matter of minutes. And as a mechanical engineer and financial analysis student, I am very confident in my math abilities. I've been tutoring for about 7 years and have covered topics such as standardized testing like the SATS, ASVAB military placement test, PSAT, and AP math courses. I've helped multiple students in Baltimore prepare for their SAT's while I was in college and most recently guided a high school senior in scoring 200 points higher than her diagnostic over a 7 week period. Additionally, I have worked at and helped run a Montessori school for younger kids and know the attention to detail that must go into their personal needs as well as learning. I firmly believe in answering questions outside the tutoring session, email followups, and building great relationships to foster personal as well as academic growth. Motivation and grit seems to be a determining factor in the success of most of my students regardless of how competent they start out.
