About this tutor

I've been tutoring for 5 years. I've had experience working with students in both individual and group settings on a variety of STEM topics. I've taught students from a vast array of learning styles. I got an 800 on Math for the SAT and the SAT Math 2 Subject test. At MIT, I am studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

I enjoy using different methods to ensure that students understand what they're learning and all the applications from it. I also really enjoy the experience of seeing students during their ah-ha moments!

    She had a clear plan of learning goals for our child and understood how to achieve them with her. She is more than a tutor, but a mentor.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

During the first meeting, I will try explaining the material in a bunch of different learning styles. I encourage students to tell me everything they know when attempting a problem, and ask them to tell me when they don't understand something. I usually have a clear understanding of their learning style by the end of that first session, and I modify my lessons for the future accordingly.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a current student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I've scored a perfect score on the Math part of the SAT and on the Math II SAT Subject test. I've also had 5 EECS internships - one for a military defense firm, one working on a new project using Machine Learning at the company nfrastructure, one at IBM Research, one at a Network Engineering and Security Consulting company redesigning the US Department of Transportation's network, and one at Microsoft being a Program Manager. I've also worked on tons of different side projects and participated in lots of Hackathons throughout high school and college.


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

I usually charge $40/hr. This, however, is negotiable if students are willing to travel to me or work online.


How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring students in high school, because I wanted to give back to my community. I've since continued working with students from all over the country helping them with Math and Computer Science.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students from across the nation who need help or want to further advance their knowledge in Math and/or Computer Science. I've helped students with a variety of learning style, as well as students with learning disabilities.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure that the teacher/tutor is staying in the loop on changes that might be happening in both the subject their teaching and updates to Standardized Tests. Advancements are being made every day in all different areas, and Collegeboard, ACT and other testing organizations make modifications to the content covered on their exams each year.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What step do you get stuck on? If you are having trouble on how to start the problem, write down what you would do if you had to guess, and explain the reason why. That way, teachers/tutors can understand what you are thinking and help guide you in being able to solve those problems.
