Thank you for visiting my profile. I am excited to about the potential to work with students of all ages and share my love and experience in mathematics, test taking, career counseling, and preparation for college or graduate school.

I have degrees in mathematics and finance in addition to attaining my MBA and a master's in education. I have always had 99th percentile test scores and have achieved great success in the classroom and in the business world. In addition, I have taught math at the collegiate level and have tutored students throughout my life. During my days, I lead a corporate team focused on helping young adults learn analytical and communications skills - so I work everyday to help others get better at what they aspire to do. I am looking to share what I have learned with the next generation of talent in hopes of helping them to achieve their dreams as others have helped me to achieve mine.

I strive to understand my clients and their goals first and then tailor a learning program around their specific needs in a structured fashion. I also believe that communication with parents throughout the process of learning is critical for success. So we will partner together to create a plan and communicate and adjust to plan as we go. I am online all the time and easy to communicate with and brainstorm with - I will find a way to make a difference for you.

Looking forward to our partnership - please reach out with any questions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 2

I have almost 20 years experience in tutoring students and adults in math. I really enjoy working with high school students to achieve their goals. I have a bachelor's degree in math and MBA and master's in education. I also have helped Mountain View and Menlo Park School Districts develop and maintain math curriculum.

Business

As a business leader, I have 15 years experience managing and coaching others at companies like McKinsey, Google and LinkedIn. I have a Bachelor's degree with a concentration in Mathematics and Finance from a top research university. I also have an MBA for Stanford University and a Masters in Education as well. I have helped create leaders in finance, recruiting, HR, sales operations, and analytics and would love to share my expertise.

Career Development

I have over ten years of experience helping people manage their careers in start-ups and Fortune 500 companies. I have lead recruiting, training and career development organizations and have an extensive network of resources to tap helping others with their career. I have an MBA and a master's in education from Stanford which gives me the foundation necessary to help anyone get the most of the career options available.

Geometry

I have almost 20 years experience in tutoring students and adults in Math. I have helped many people understand Geometry, especially constructing proofs and the formulas that are different from other branches of math. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Math and MBA and Master's in Education. While getting my math degree I studied Knot Theory, an advanced geometry discipline and learned many tricks that would apply to students. I also have helped Mountain View and Menlo Park School Districts develop and maintain math curriculum.

GMAT

I achieved a 96% percentile score on the GMAT and I have helped over a dozen people prepare for the GMAT and subsequent business school applications. I have an MBA as well as a masters in education from Stanford and would consider myself an expert in the art and science of test taking. I have studied computer adaptive testing algorithms (this is the type of test that the GMAT is). I have strengths in Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing, but I can also coach the Verbal aspect.

Microsoft Excel

I have over 20 years of experience using Microsoft Excel. I have coached and trained hundreds of users at Fortune 200 companies. I can effectively help you use Excel to make your professional and personal life easier. I really enjoy helping others get the most out of all versions of Microsoft Excel.

Poker

I have been playing poker online and in card rooms all over the US for the past 5 years. I have played hundreds of thousands of hands online and thousands of hours in poker rooms and earn about $2,000 a month in live cash games. I really enjoy the science and the art of the game, having read over 40 books on poker.

Prealgebra

I have nearly 20 years experience in tutoring students and adults in Math. I enjoy most working with middle and high school students to achieve their goals. I have a Bachelors Degree in Math and MBA and Masters in Education. I have partnered with the Mountain View and Menlo Park School Districts to develop and maintain their Math curriculum.

Public Speaking

I have been speaking in front of crowds of 500 or more since I was 6 years old. I won a state championship in Illinois and placed 4th nationally in the public speaking competition at the Academic Decathlon. I have done hundreds of several speaking engagements on behalf of Michigan State University, Google, Stanford University, and the Mountain View-Whisman School District. I have also coached many students and professionals on speech construction, practice, delivery, and temperament when speaking publicly.
