I started tutoring as the oldest cousin in a family that highly values education so I have experience with students from elementary school age to high school age. I’ve tutored my peers during high school and college in various subjects, whether it be first exposure to material or reviewing for exams; I can help students at any point in the learning process. I’ve also worked as a tutor at C2 education where I was allowed to put my own spin on the curriculum to give each student a more unique experience to reach his/her maximum potential. I can work with students struggling with certain subjects or strong students striving for perfection and everything in between. I try to find ways to motivate each student so each session is enjoyable instead of a chore. I enjoy helping students not only learn material, but also see the usefulness and application in whatever subject they are studying. While understanding and appreciation is vital, results are my top priority. I’ve been lucky enough to have an extensive education in a variety of subjects and I would like to pass the same knowledge and skills to other students motivated enough to learn them. I studied engineering for my undergraduate degree, but I plan on shifting careers into quantitative finance since I discovered my love of trading. Outside of tutoring I am still a full-time student who is further developing my trading, programming and portfolio management skills.
