About this tutor

I make sure every plan I make with my students is tailored for their needs. I make it my priority when teaching to not just teach a student to memorize facts but to understand the concepts themselves so that everything can be intuitive. Even at the graduate level, difficult concepts can be explained with simple instruction.

I love seeing the lightbuilb turn on in my students' minds when they finally figure out how a previously difficult concept makes sense. I like seeing my students able to overcome barriers that they think they would have forever by just learning how to tackle a seemingly difficult problem in a simple way. I truly enjoy seeing my students learn to think for themselves.

FAQs


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

What I usually do is I will invite the student to book a trial lesson with me. If that goes well, then we will make a plan together for how to spend our sessions, what to focus on, and how to evaluate improvement. I am pretty flexible about time, and do all my tutoring online. 


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

I am currently a PhD student at Drexel University in Environmental Engineering. I have been a private tutor for over 10 years. I have been a TA (teaching assistant) at the graduate level as well. My coursework in collge, Masters, and PhD have given me a lot of experience with the courses I tutor themselves, and allowed me to be able to break down very complex topics into easy to understand concepts. 


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

My minimum rate is 30 dollars an hour. For Exam Prep and graduate level courses, my price is usually 40 an hour, but is reduced with increased hours. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started tutoring in high school. I had completed all the AP science and math exams, and volunteered to tutor at my school's IDEAS center. After that, I worked at Rutgers as a student tutor, and eventually began tutoring privately. I continued to tutor as I pursued and completed my Masters in Biomedical Sciences and into my PhD in Environmental Engineering


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students at all levels, both struggling and doing well. Most of my struggling students were having difficulty understanding concepts that were not taught adequately in school. After tutoring, they were able to understand the concepts in a simple, intuitive way, and when they would make mistakes, we would build on these concepts intuitively. Students that were more advanced and just wanted to do better would come to me, mostly for test prep, and I would teach them how to solve problems in a test-oriented way, identify mistakes, and build test-taking skills as well as improve concepts.
