Below a summary of my teaching philosophy.
I am a third year Math Phd student at the University of Texas at Austin. I've worked as a Teaching Assistant, Mentor, Tutor and Adjunct Professor for over 7 years now. I've always felt that failing to understand and succeed in Math has more to do with psychological barriers in students' minds rather than a real inborn inability to learn the subject. Using a friendly, warm, laid-back, but professional environment, I try to create a bond with the student and make him/her destroy this psychological barrier and achieve his/her goal, showing that Math is not the monster people think it is.
I feel that I need to share my passion for Math and inspire people the same way I was inspired by several people in my life. It is all about how a subject is presented to you. I will not give up until my students succeed!
HobbiesI'm a pretty laid-back person, who enjoys movies a lot, specially horror ones (and I love the B or old ones!). People say I'm fun(ny) and that I have a good sense of humor (?!) and I like to think I do. I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle, going to the gym, practicing yoga and relaxing when my body needs some rest. On my spare time (meaning not at school, teaching or tutoring) I still like reading math books just for fun, thinking about random mathematical problems and writing notes about new things that I learn. After all, my goal is to be a full time Math professor/researcher when I complete my PhD program. I really cannot imagine myself not talking about math for more than a week (even though I know my dog doesn't like this fact that much). Sometimes I need to come back to the real non-abstract world, I must admit. And when I do, I like singing, reading fiction and laughing a lot.
