EducationVirginia Tech - Entrepreneurship and Supply Chain Management double major. 3.8/4.0 GPA.
ExperienceI am passionate about teaching economics, having tutored dozens of high school students in AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics, as well as college students in the equivalent introductory economics classes. In high school, I scored a 5 on both AP Micro and AP Macro econ tests.
As a business student at Virginia Tech, I am in the top 10% of my class. However, in tutoring I realize the importance of not just having had good grades, but being able to explain the subject at hand in a manner that is easy to understand to the student. I only tutor economics for this reason-- it is the subject I am best at not just doing well in myself, but also in teaching others. I do this by relating every econ concept back to the real-world in a way that is applicable to students' actual lives. I believe that economics is a unique subject in this sense because almost nothing needs to be memorized. It just comes down to truly understanding the material in such a way that makes it feel like common sense.
Too often economics is mistaught by focusing on formulas and memorization. This not only makes the subject needlessly difficult, but also eliminates the fun of it. This is why I am so passionate about tutoring students in economics. I see it as not just helping students do well in the class, but truly instilling enjoyment of the subject in students, which I find to be very fulfilling.
Aside from tutoring, I've launched two successful startup companies in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, and have a diverse background having worked in the IT, energy, finance, and aviation industries. I'm currently working on my third startup in the medical industry and am President of Entrepreneurship Club at Virginia Tech.
HobbiesWhen I'm not working, I enjoy going for walks, running, flying drones and airplanes, listening to music, playing chess, and making short films.
