I combine deep subject matter expertise with a thoughtful, calm approach that seeks to teach each student in the way that is best for their learning style. Students have been impressed with the success at improving test scores quickly as well as their understanding of the subjects.
I have helped students master AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, as well as other math and science subjects (including algebra, geometry, precalculus, statistics), and prepare for standardized tests (such as the SAT, ACT, or subject tests). I have also helped students write winning application essays.
I have a Masters Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois, and a deep knowledge of math, physics, chemistry, and college application essays.
I have also helped students apply to and get into top universities that include Bard College, Bucknell, Grinnell, MIT, NYU, the Universities of California and Texas, and more. This includes helping them write and edit great admissions essays, select colleges, and fill out applications and financial aid forms.
I enjoy helping students find the inspiration and joy in the subjects they learn, and in the college application process. I love teaching and helping students learn in whatever way is best for them. I modify my approach to work with each student's learning style.
