I am a Naperville North High School and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign graduate with a degree in Mathematics. I have extensive problem-solving experience including winning 1st place at the 2007 ICTM State Math Contest, qualifying for the USA Math Olympiad, and placing in the top 500 in the national Putnam competition.

My tutoring methods vary student-by-student, but I specialize in breaking down problems and asking questions to guide the student toward discovering and truly understanding concepts which helps with retention and effective test-taking.

I take pride in the success of each and every one of my students and look forward to meeting you!
