About
I explain lessons through stepbystep explanations and examples. Learning solely from inclass lectures or textbook reading can make learning difficult, but by providing general guides and working out examples together, I aim to help my students become confident to solve problems on their own. I want my students to become experts in the area they’re studying and go beyond simply understanding the material to the extent that they’re able to teach others as well. My main goal is not just to help my students improve in one subject, but to help them improve overall by improving their study habits and techniques.

I take pride in the knowledge that my students can feel confident in their ability to learn and comprehend new material on their own.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I start by getting to know what the student’s strengths and weaknesses are, how they prefer to study, what their priorities are, what they’re currently working on, etc. I like to work on their immediate problems first, working with them through their current homework problems and exercises to get an idea of what concepts they’re struggling with. Then, I’ll start to explain the concepts they struggle with and recommend study tips to help them get past similar confusions in the future.
If the student has a book that they’re already working with, I will research the book and work with them according to the book.
If the student is just studying for an upcoming test, I will help them write study guides and go over practice tests.
