I've been tutoring since middle school in Brazil. In high school I was chosen to tutor my peers, tutor for Math and Sciences Olympiads, and to act as an assistant in math classes. I started private tutoring during the end of my high school career, and I kept tutoring during college, specially for the Brazilian College admission exams.
I love tutoring because I can share my passion for knowledge with my students, and it is very rewarding to see that passion being transmitted. To do that, I am very committed to understanding the students' needs and interests. By getting to know my students, I can make him or her understand the importance of what is being studied.
I enjoy figure skating, piano playing, and arts in general. I am working to build a research career to develop the way we can mathematically model human behavior.
