FAQs


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

A new student must first be consulted individually to find their strenghts and areas of improvement. Once these can be established the appropriate approach can begin to be used to help the student turn their weaknesses into areas of strength. During this process it is very important to know and relate to the student as an individual to establish a personal connection.


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

I majored in Physics and Economics in college, taking many high level mathematics courses along the way. I also minored in education. Since then I have been teaching math and science primarily at the high school level but also some middle school classes. I am currently teaching calculus, physics and engineering.


How did you get started teaching?

After college I began teaching and coaching high school and have been doing it ever since.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students who have gone on to Ivy League Schools and Stanford, ones who have attended state colleges as well as students who need to pass a course to stay eligible for sports. All work is tailored to the students needs to be successful.


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

First make sure the teacher they are looking for is familiar with the content they need help in. A teacher who does not know the material can cause more confusion than help understanding what is going on. A good relationship is next. The student must feel comfortable working with their tutor and asking questions.


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

The first thing students need to think about is what their needs are. Where are they confused? What do they need help with? Once they can recognize their areas that need help improving, time with a tutor can then be used most efficiently to address those problem areas.
