I am a graduate of the California Institue of Technology that is well-versed in all areas of math and science. I also teach standardized exam prep (SAT, GRE, GMAT).
I like seeing the A-HA! moment on my students' faces when they finally understand a concept that we've been working on.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I first review the material we will be covering that week for myself. I then spend time composing a plan where we can alternate between learning fundamentals and doing practice problems. Throughout the lesson, I diagnose the strong points and weaknesses of my student's knowledge. This is used to move flexibly through the week's lesson plan and to better construct next week's lesson plan. Questions are highly encouraged and rewarded and we often make games out of the various practice problems.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from the California Institute of technology in 2018 and started work as a data scientist in the financial sector of Delaware out of college. My experience in college and work have fine-tuned my mathematical abilities. I also worked with children in a tutoring environment as the lead instructor at Mathnasium when I was in high school. More recently I have had experience working with children at the volunteer organization, Supporting Kidds, in Hockessin, DE.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
$65/hour. Or $120 for a two-hour session with a 15 minute break after the first hour.
How did you get started teaching?
I was the lead instructor at mathnasium for two years when I was in high school. I also tutored for the SAT the summer after my senior year of high school.
What types of students have you worked with?
Students of all ages from elementary school to college.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
When it feels like the weight of the world is crushing down on you and you can never figure it out, know that I have felt this way many times in my own life and had many students feels this way. It gets better with enough hard work and the right tutor.
