Private tutor in Silver Spring, MD
Lehigh University - BA, Psychology , University of Pennsylvania - M.S.Ed., Psychological Services
I am currently working towards my PhD at the University of Maryland, College Park in counseling psychology, and I am also in the certificate program in measurement, statistics, and evaluation. I got a bachelor of arts in psychology at Lehigh University, and a Master of Education in psychological and counseling services at the University of Pennsylvania. I have a passion for math -- I love solving problems and seeing how I arrived at the solution, and I have a deep appreciation for just how applicable to everyday life many of the concepts are. However, I know math is a real struggle for some, and this is why I tutor. I specialize in algebra I and II, elementary math, geometry, middle school math, pre-calculus, and English, as well as GRE and other test prep. I like to help students figure out their own methods of learning the concepts, at their own pace. My psychology education is helpful for this, and I incorporate that experience into tutoring to help foster conceptual learning rather than just memorizing facts and formulas. I also taught ESL for a year in South Korea. In my spare time, I enjoy trying new foods, catching up with friends, bike riding, and running. I look forward to exploring more of the Maryland/DC/Virginia area.
