In college, I discovered my passions for mathematics, computer science, and education. I deeply enjoyed learning difficult concepts and crafting sophisticated programs as a student, but I found the greatest satisfaction in sharing my knowledge and supporting students as a tutor and a teaching assistant. Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science from the University of Rochester in New York, I flew across the country to teach elementary school in San Jose. I was continually inspired by the curiosity and potential of my students, and I grew as a teacher in my ability to connect and foster growth for each student in a unique way.
My personal approach to education is to emphasize qualitative understanding over quantitative instruction. I greatly enjoy 1:1 tutoring because it can provide a high level of engagement while directly addressing a pupil’s gaps in understanding that can be difficult for a general classroom teacher to do with large classes. I also enjoy thinking about the future of education in our country and how educators can make use of the breadth of pedagogical knowledge combined with our latest technology.
Growing up, I had quite the diverse experience living in several places including Kansas, New York, California, and even India. Having been a student at over ten educational institutions, and having taught at a few more, I feel that these experiences have granted me a rich and varied perspective on education.
In my spare time, you will most likely find me mulling over strategy and tactics in a game of chess, which I consider to be the best free-to-play multiplayer online real-time strategy title out there. My favorite opening move as white: Pawn to e4!
