I have five years of tutoring experience, mostly in subjects in mathematics and economics. I have tutored high school students, college students, as well children (10-15 years of age) that are extraordinarily gifted in mathematics (in preparation for math competitions and AMC olympiads). During my four years of college, I have worked as a peer tutor in the Math and Stats Workshop at Bates College, where I have been trained in various tutoring formats. Besides one-to-one and group tutoring, I have experience in being a grader and a teaching assistant for classes such as: Abstract Algebra, Calculus, Probability, Linear Algebra etc. Upon completion of my doctorate studies, I intend to become a professor. Teaching and tutoring are skills that come to me naturally. Additional awards: Stangle Fellowship for Research in Economics and Law (June 2009-June 2011). Stangle Family Award in Economics 2012 (for the most outstanding Senior Thesis in Economics) The Percy D. Wilkins Mathematics Award 2012 (for the graduating senior who has achieved the highest rank in studies undertaken in mathematics) Honors Program 2012, Honors Thesis in EconomicsWhen starting to work with a new student, I like to have a brief 10-20 minutes conversation (for which the student clearly does not need to compensate) during which we get to know each other, we talk about our tutoring and learning styles, we openly express our expectations from the tutoring sessions, and we settle a subject-to-change schedule for our future sessions, defining clear goals and objectives. Because I have had such diverse tutoring experiences, I get along very well with different types of students/learners, and I tend to be quite good in identifying quickly the learning difficulties and in coming up with strategies to tackle these difficulties.
