Cognitivism is the study in psychology that focuses on mental processes, including how people perceive, think, remember, learn, solve problems, and direct their attention to one stimulus rather than another. Psychologists working from a cognitivist perspective, then, seek to understand cognition. Rooted in Gestalt psychology and the work of Jean Piaget, cognitivism has been prominent in psychology since the 1960s; it contrasts with behaviorism, where psychologists concentrate their studies on observable behavior. Contemporary research often links cognitivism to the view that people process information as computers do, according to specific rules; in this way, it is related to studies in artificial intelligence. In addition, cognitivism has influenced education, as studies of how people learn potentially sheds light on how to teach most effectively.

I'm a certified Math and English teacher for grades 8-12 in Massachusetts. Right now, I focus on gifted students with learning disabilities, ADHD, and mental health challenges who may be underperforming and overstressed in their classes. I can work with you if you have diagnosed LD or simply learn best outside of a traditional lecture and textbook format. If I don't know about something, I will tell you that openly, I'll point to where you might be able to find that information, and I'll learn more about it for next time. I'm strongest as a teacher when I'm working one-on-one and my favorite part of teaching is "diagnosing" where a student's thinking might be leading them astray (or ahead!)I got my Masters at Harvard in Applied Math, focusing on statistics and advanced mechanics/physics applied to biology. I taught and tutored Organic Chemistry, Precalculus, Calculus, proof-based Linear Algebra and Real Analysis, and Intro to Applied Math (for majors) at Harvard. I also work with student writing for classes, projects and graduate applications as a tutor in my undergraduate house. I've tutored everything from 5th grade math to competitive math teams to graduate school pure math and engineering. I've worked with Master's Engineering students studying for the TOEFL alongside high school sophomores in my Saturday volunteer creative writing classes, and I've tutored undergraduates at Harvard and helped develop curriculum in proof-based math and numerical experimentation-driven freshman physics.
I'm from Brooklyn, NY. I'm a city kid who could stare at the stars all night, which I do when I visit my family in rural Canada. I love biking, choral singing, performing poetry, teaching in all settings and with all people, and crisis management and education for mental health. I'm always looking to get into new art forms, learn new languages and pursue things where my gaps lead me. I also have difficulty keeping a straight face for more than a few minutes (or a paragraph) at a time.
