EducationHamilton College - BA, Mathematics
ExperienceI am a highly disciplined and focused tutor with a solid grounding in the sciences, though I am qualified to help your student in a wide array of academic subjects. I'm a graduate of Hamilton College, where I was selected to be a tutor for the Quantitative Literacy Center, on the recommendation of my professor. There I gained the practical knowledge to become an effective teacher. I learned the paramount importance of listening to the student, to assess their level of comprehension, and build upon that by introducing new and more complex material in a gradual, manageable fashion. I believe a good teacher must know the subject material inside and out, and must also have some understanding of how and why students have trouble comprehending that material. I consider it a great strength of mine that I can home in on what parts of the lesson a student is grasping and which parts they aren't. It's my experience that students can't always articulate where the hurdles are, and an experienced tutor will be able to identify them. Beyond my work at Hamilton, I taught summer science classes to fourth and fifth graders at Exploration Summer Programs, and another summer I taught eighth grade chemistry through Breakthrough Collaborative. In both cases I was solely responsible for create the curriculum and lesson plans. In my free time, I love to play music and sing.
