Hello students!! I am college student myself so I understand the fast pace and heavy work load of school. I also understand what it is like to not fully grasp a concept as quick as everyone else. I am here to help you not only understand what you are learning, but to have confidence within yourself as a student as well. I am very easy going and I am very willing to make adjustments to how I tutor to accommodate each student!

I am a Teaching Instructor at UConn in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. I am big on making sure that students understand the concepts with sound mathematical basis. That way once you learn something, it stays with you for life. Sharing what I know and helping students realize their potential is my goal. Enjoying what you do is equally important so I try to make my classes interactive and engaging.

My daughter never did well with virtual tutoring. However her experience with him was great she felt like she understood the work afterwards. He also was willing to help her the same night we contacted him because she was struggling and it was 10pm. He took the time to help her get through her homework. I was very grateful
