Adam helped my daughter get back into math after a break. He helped with college trigonometry, which is difficult for anyone. He was soft spoken and modest with a kind smile and attitude. They became a team and worked their way through the difficult class in the best way I could imagine. Thank you Adam! ! !

Adam recently helped me with a crash course in general chemistry and physics for my MCAT. My scores improved consistently with each session and I felt much more confident going into my exam!

Adam helped me with all my math and science courses during sophomore and junior year of high school. He is very patient, conversational, and approaches problems from several angles until you understand whats happening. He is very persistent and positive!

Frequently asked questions

Typically I work with the student for one or two lessons to get an understanding of how they learn. I will then adapt my approach to personalize it to the needs of the student. I always work out all the problems myself, but I will let the student make an attempt and interject as needed before I share the answers with them. I put in time outside the sessions to make sure I am as prepared as possible and that our sessions can be productive and insightful for the student.

I’m currently on-track to be an engineering professor by this summer. I have a teaching certification from Georgia Institute of Technology, experience instructing undergraduate courses, and over 13 years of tutoring experience.

I have always wanted to be a professor, and I have actively sought opportunities to tutor and improve my teaching abilities to prepare myself for this career.

I have worked with students ranging from middle schoolers to college grads preparing for the MCAT.
