I am a fun-loving but focused tutor who loves nothing more than when a student reaches an "Aha!" moment. I have a deep love for computers, math, and literature, and often students catch my enthusiasm for the subject matter. I'm good at honing in on conceptual sticking points, developing step-by-step processes for problem-solving, and approaching problems from multiple angles until the student gets a natural intuition for the concept. I also really enjoy editing papers, and working with a student to help convey their ideas eloquently in the written domain. I am currently developing an Android application and building a business, and seeking some side income while I get things started. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, drawing, reading, and playing the drums.
