Math is a second language to me. I recently took graduate physics and math courses on track to receiving a physics PhD from University of Pennsylvania, so you could say I've been living and breathing math for a long time. All those courses in public school ended up helping me greatly, although I didn't appreciate them at the time. I understand what it's like to view math as the enemy, so I can relate to you if you're struggling unhappily to get through your math classes. Math class is a battle and you can win the war!

Besides helping my brother, sister, and friends with math homework growing up, I've had other tutoring and teaching positions. For all of 10th grade, I joined a tutoring club at my school to help underperforming math students turn their grades around. In 2015, I TA'd two hands-on Electrical Engineering summer school courses for elementary and middle school students. From 2015-2016 I was enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania as a graduate student and taught six undergraduate physics lab sections. All of those experiences taught me how to lecture clearly and hone my abilities as an encouraging helper.

I have a B.S. in Physics, with a Minor in Mathematics, from UCLA. I've also worked as a Systems Engineer at Boeing (at the El Segundo Satellite Development Center) for a year and a half, so I've learned math for math itself, for physics classes, and for applied engineering problems in industry. It's the broad extent of my application of math concepts that gives me confidence that I can give you the tools you need to succeed, for math as well as for school in general. School is a challenge, as it should be, and if you'd like to become fearless, I'm the tutor for you.

There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing students improve their skills and become strong. But I do also love the challenge!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My price includes time spent preparing at home to adjust my math knowledge to the teacher's presentation of the topics. Common Core standards make this crucial for tutors to accommodate. This includes a carefully constructed approach, unique to each student, that centers on the student's strengths. My approach works not only for math, but for the study habits that the student will need for other subjects, now and in the future. Building a foundation of responsibility and motivation is key, and students who develop the best parts of themselves as soon as possible are the ones who come out on top.

I charge $60 an hour, but if we happen to go a little over the alotted time, I won't mind. But you can be sure that you're getting top quality tutoring and insight from me, that I've acquired from academia, industry, and interpersonal relationships.
