Hello there! My name is Anna and I am a bio engineering major and undergraduate researcher at UC Berkeley. I absolutely love math and science, and I really enjoy teaching others. Perhaps surprisingly, this has not always been the case. When I was in high school I thought I was simply not a "math person" and I really had only a passive interest in science. 

When I decided I wanted to be an engineer, I knew that sooner or later I was going to have to face my archnemesis - math. Although the challenge that lay before me seemed arduous and possibly futile, I boldly began by teaching myself math from the elementary algebra level. I pored over various media until I found the concepts presented the way I needed to see them. Things were different for me this time, and math seemed to almost suddenly "click" for me. It was the way in which the information was presented that made all the difference in the world. 

Now math, and also science, come fairly easy to me, and so I have experienced both sides of the coin - I know what it is like to suck terribly at a subject, and I also know what it's like to fully grasp the same exact concepts that once seemed so out of reach. When I aid others in learning new material, I make it my primary goal to first identify their unique way of learning and then use that information to lead the student to their own understanding of the material. 

As a tutor, I think I get just as much joy out of watching concepts "click" for students as they do because it reminds of how great of a feeling it was when I first experienced the satisfaction of truly understanding concepts I consider to be complex.
