Hello, I'm Priscilla. I'm a high school student who wishes to help students who may be struggling with the material they are learning. While I currently do not have any amount of hours formally tutoring, I have often spent time helping friends younger than me who had difficulty in their classes.
As a visual and kinesthetic learner, I try to implement methods that were helpful to me when I was learning the material. This can include drawing pictures, using colors to differentiate material, tricks to remember specific material, and going over specific questions with the student to ensure they understand how to approach the questions. As I come to know the student, I adjust how the material is taught so they can understand it best.
Throughout elementary and middle school, I consistently earned high quiz and test scores in my math classes. This, by extension, allowed me to achieve good grades. While I cannot provide the actual scores, they are in the high eighties and nineties. In Algebra 2, I was placed into the accelerated class (my school offers three levels, CP - the lowest - Accelerated - the middle level - and honors - the highest level) and ended with an eighty six in the class.
I have been playing flute for eight years in my school's concert band. In addition to this, I also joined my school marching band when I got into high school and took one year of music theory, as it was offered as a course in my school.
I wish to see the students succeed in their classes and will welcome any suggestions or resources provided. I am easily reachable and will respond quickly. If you have any questions or wish to schedule a lesson, feel free to contact me.
As a part of my undergraduate studies, I took many courses in mathematics and an assortment of applied fields (economics, physics, computer science, philosophy). My mathematics education included calculus (up to multivariate and differential equations), statistics, real & complex analysis and linear algebra. My interests mostly lie in the realm of mathematical logic because it dives deeper into proofs and the potential paradoxes that follow. My goal is to be a professor at a university that allows me to research pure mathematics. If there's a math topic that isn't represented in my profile, there's an equal chance that I know it enough to teach you, or that I would be willing to learn for you!
I also spent my years throughout high school and college studying, practicing, and performing music through my instrument, the flute. I've performed solo and with ensembles at many venues such as Merkin Concert Hall, Roulette Intermedium, National Sawdust, and the DiMenna Center for Classical Music. As a result of a concerto competition win, I played the Khachaturian Flute Concerto with the Stony Brook University Orchestra (full performance on YouTube). I also started a unofficial flute choir at SBU, arranging pieces for flutes of varying sizes. I have an equal appreciation for solo repertoire, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts; and if you're just starting out, I'd love to help out on your journey!
I am patient and work at the speed of the student learning, I teach scales, arpeggios, chromatic scales, and beginner www.*** ;
