I am a recent college graduate from UMass Amherst who majored in Math and minored in Computer Science. I have a wide array of knowledge about all things math related. Back in high school I would tutor my peers who needed help and I pride myself on being able to explain complex things simply. Some of my interests outside of tutoring include data science and predicitve analysis.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We will talk about what topic or subject they need help with, what they do or don't understand about it. After I'll ask them if they have specific problems they want to work out and work from there. If not I'll make my own.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a bachelors degree in Math and in high school I tutored my peers.
How did you get started teaching?
My friends would ask me for math help.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
You have to find someone who can explain things to you in a way that you will understand. Some people, even the really smart ones, don't have that skill. So look for someone who is articulate and personable.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
They can ask any question they want so long as its thoughtful. What's important is that they know what they need help with.
