Teaching Style: I bring a lot of enthusiasm and energy to the learning process and approach both individual problems as well as the overall goal of learning with a great sense of excitement. I tend to think of my teaching style as similar to an optometrist - not that I have the ability to correct one’s vision, but in the sense that I like to try viewing material through different lenses until the student is able to understand the subject more clearly.
Summary of Prior Experience: As a teaching assistant at Middlebury College, I ran help sessions and tutorials with small groups of students as well as individualized tutoring. In small group settings, I’ve found great success in working towards finding the gaps in understanding between the students and guiding them to help each other. Working with students on an individual basis gives greater opportunity to break down the student’s understanding and ensure that any and all gaps in understanding are addressed and filled properly.
