"As someone who loves to learn but has a unique learning style, I am a strong believer in idiosyncratic teaching.

"As someone who loves to learn but has a unique learning style, I am a strong believer in idiosyncratic teaching. I do not believe that anyone is truly "bad at" math or any other subject; they simply have not found an approach that works for them. It is my goal to help as many students as possible find the learning style that works for them and discover the true scope of their abilities.

The word "philosophy" is derived from the Greek for "love of wisdom." It is therefore quite fitting that I chose to study philosophy in college. Knowledge (and the journey of acquiring it) is my favorite thing in the whole world. The universe around us is a fascinating machine, and every academic subject is meant to provide us with insight into how it works and how we can engage with it in greater ways. Unfortunately, thanks to the rigidity of the school system and the classroom setting, many students are never encouraged to make that connection. The result is that they find themselves increasingly alienated from the world around them, which seems overwhelmingly opaque. It is therefore critical to help students make the connection between academics and their day-to-day interests and lives in a way that makes the material not only relevant but exciting.

I place a huge importance on the value of curiosity, passion, and fun in learning. I find the processes of learning and problem-solving exhilarating, and my strategy for tutoring hinges on helping my students discover their own love of knowledge. While many students seek help solely for the purpose of passing a class or improving their grades and do not believe it would be possible for a particular subject to interest them, I will go out of my way to help the student forge a personal connection with the material in order to improve comprehension through engagement. For this reason, I like to spend some time learning about my students as individuals, enabling me to gain insight into their learning styles, their approaches to problem-solving, their academic goals, their personal interests, and what excites them." less...
