EducationI graduated from The College of New Jersey in May of 2015 with a degree in Applied Mathematics, and was recently awarded the honor of being placed on the Dean's List for the Spring 2015 semester (requirement being a 3.5 GPA for the semester). My future plans include pursuing a Master's in the field of Mathematics. My general interests include Technology, Finance, and Mathematics, in no particular order.
ExperienceI began tutoring during my freshman year of high school, which totals to about 8 years worth of experience. One thing I have come to value tremendously is being able to interact with students, something that is difficult to do in a lecture setting. To reflect this, I attempt to have students work through problem sets of increasing difficulty level to reinforce learning rather than simply lecturing material. This keeps the student more engaged, and is usually a productive use of time. Attempting problems, identifying areas of weakness, and then correcting those issues often produces the best results.
In addition to being able to work closely with students, I have also come to enjoy being able to work with students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some of these experiences include:
-Being a private Mathematics and Science Tutor for High School and College Students
-Being a tutor at the Jones Farm Prison for inmates trying to earn their GED
-Being a tutor at the Kumon Learning Center.
I particularly enjoy tutoring Mathematics because of my love for it. Sharing that with other people has been a great experience, and something I still feel great joy in doing.
My scores on relevant standardized tests include:
-790/800 on the Math section of the SAT
-166/170 on the quantitative section of the GRE
HobbiesSome topics of interest that I enjoy learning about are Data Science, Algorithms, and Machine Learning. Although the emphasis of my undergraduate Mathematics education was in Applied Mathematics, I still appreciate learning Pure Mathematics as well. The elegance and pure logic involved is something that still fascinates me.
Besides from that, I enjoy playing basketball with friends, reading about new places, and grilling in the summertime :)
