About

My own life experience has made me an optimist that anybody can improve their skills in math, as long as you stick to it! I went from nearly flunking out of geometry in ninth grade (I had to go down to the lowest section in my grade) to excellent scores in math achievement and SAT tests, and survival while earning BS and MS degrees in geophysics at MIT. More recently, I tutored my son in college calculus, and was able to witness him going from low proficiency to an A in his final exam in the class.

A good math tutor should be able to make even the most difficult concepts simple. Math should be (almost) fun! It's my goal to keep it simple, fun and rewarding.

It's a privilege to work with students to help them develop the essential math skills to help them in college and the rest of their lives. I thoroughly enjoy helping students learn, and seeing their satisfaction when they've improved their skills.

Frequently asked questions

I like to get a good understanding of the student's goals and experience first.  

In my experience, the best way to improve math skills is through doing.  So we'll work through a set of problems early on, and then again during all lessons.  

Everybody has a way to go about learning that works best for him or her, and I'll focus on finding out what works best for the student.

My most useful training and experience has been working with my own son as he went through high school and then on to college calculus.  Of course I cared a lot about his results, so I developed skills to keep him engaged, and to explain the more difficult concepts in math.

I'm completely comfortable with the substance of high school and college mathematics.  Much of my coursework involved math and physics when I earned BS and MS degrees in geophysics from MIT.

$40 per hour.  For in-person tutoring, I'd much prefer to give lessons at my office location in Tysons Corner.
