Description

I am currently a student at Stanford University studying math and political science and I am a math tutor in Palo Alto. I participated in debate throughout my time in high school and college, and my experience taught me how to effectively communicate tricky concepts in a simple way. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with younger students. I have helped students of different ages and from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, and so I am very conscious of the needs and prior knowledge my students and tailor my tutoring method and style individually. I tutor students in a wide range of subjects. In subjects related to reading and writing, I focus first on the students comprehension of the material at hand and then help the student construct an analytical argument. In subjects related to math, I review the foundational concepts in a certain topic before proceeding to assist the student with specific example problems. I am also very knowledgeable about standardized tests, particularly the ACT and many of the SAT subject tests, and so I am always excited to help students reach their full potential on these tests.
