Hello, Iím a junior at Harvard University majoring in
Anthropology and Pre Med providing tutoring for the
Summer . I've always loved learning, whether it's the
humanities, social sciences or physical sciences. My
strongest subjects are history and natural sciences, I'm
studying to be a doctor, but I believe all knowledge is
valuable and it makes me happy to learn new things, even
if it isn't immediately obvious how the knowledge can be
used. The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. I
spend most of my time in NYC and Boston, eating delicious
food and listening to audio books with my wife.
My favorite topics to teach are math, natural sciences
and history. It makes me very sad that many children and
adolescents I've met in the past felt they were bad at
math, they aren't, math just takes some more work than
other subjects. It's more of a skill you need to practice
rather than something you can read about and absorb. I
really enjoy seeing a student begin to find math problems
they previously struggled with become very easy. It's
very important to be strong in math, it's the foundation
for any career in science, business and economics.
Teaching and learning about the natural sciences is
wonderful. You learn about the building blocks of life
and the universe and how it all works. Since I was little
people learning about the universe and using their
knowledge to save lives and build incredible things
seemed like magic to me.
Students and teachers of history ask: What happened? When
did it happen? But many important questions are often
left out. Why did this happen? How did what happened in
the past cause the events of the future? Put yourself in
the shoes of great historical figures. Why did they make
the decisions they did? Were they good decisions? If not,
what would you have done instead? If we learn of the bad
and good decisions made in history, can we avoid future
bad decisions and make more good ones?
I hope I can help others gain knowledge they'll enjoy.
