I love math. I truly do. Since as long as I can remember, I've always found it fascinating, interesting, and highly rewarding. But what I love even more than ripping through a problem set is sharing my passion for math with ambitious students.
I've been teaching math for almost 20 years, ever since I was in middle school. Throughout my academic and professional life, I have continuously set time aside to help kids understand all sorts of math concepts. Why? Because math is a subject matter that I not only understand and enjoy thoroughly, but one that I am able to adeptly teach. No matter who you are or what your educational level, I am 100% confident that I can bring you clarity in whatever math subject you are studying. I have helped all ages of kids learn arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2, precalculus, trigonometry, and calculus. If you are a motivated student shooting for excellence, I want to work with you.
From kindergarten through high school, I attended a private school for the gifted in the midwest. My classmates were extremely bright and very passionate about learning. Despite the stiff competition, I was the top math student in my class throughout my entire primary education. This was partially because I had a natural affinity for math, but also due in large part to my focus and diligent practice. I loved math and I wanted to be the absolute best. Accordingly, I pushed myself harder than anyone else in order to understand the material thoroughly. Because of my careful attention to detail and devotion to understanding mathematics, I cultivated an uncanny ability to convey the concepts in a clear, digestible manner.
I understand what it takes to achieve academic and professional excellence because I have walked the path myself. After high school, I attended the University of Michigan where I majored in computer science and economics. I then worked as a software developer for nearly three years before attending law school at Northwestern University. Because of my software expertise, I went on to become a patent litigator at two of the best intellectual property law practices in the country. During my legal career, I worked with a number of fortune 500 companies who needed help protecting their intellectual property. After practicing law for four years, I finally realized that I had to make a change. Patent law wasn't my end all be all. So what was I to do? "If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose." It was that very sentiment led me back to math education as full time career.
I have taught core math subjects to an array of students at both private schools and inner city public schools. I have tutored students for both the SAT, ACT, and the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). I have seen every level of academic proficiency and have learned one beautiful truth: anyone can be an excellent math student. There's no quick fix and no secret recipe; you simply need (1) a great teacher, (2) good study habits, and (3) a willingness to work. If you can nail down these three components, the sky is the limit.
I have a complete understanding of every difficulty type of ACT math question available, and have successfully tutored a number of students for the ACT. My teaching strategy centers around (1) providing a thorough understanding of the tested concepts, (2) encouraging lengthy and regular practice, and (3) offering detailed explanations for any missed or confusing questions.
I took Algebra 1 in the seventh grade and was the top performing student in my class (even among 8th graders and 9th graders). I went on to help a number of students with the subject informally during my middle school years, and eventually began tutoring students in the subject both on a pro-bono and professional basis. I love Algebra, and thoroughly enjoy teaching students its mechanics as I consider it to be a key foundational subject in the study of mathematics. I pride myself on my ability to inject my enthusiasm and love for Algebra into each lesson.
I received an "A" in algebra 2 when I took it as a high school freshman. I routinely scored higher than my fellow classmates, even those who were senior to me. I have a deep understanding of the subject matter, and have taught dozens of kids on both a pro-bono and private basis.
I received an A in calculus as well as a 5 on the advanced placement test. In college, I took both calculus 3 and 4. I am well versed in the concepts of both derivatives and integrals, and thoroughly enjoying explaining these matters to young students. I often find that people are highly intimidated by calculus. More often than not, however, folks are pleasantly surprised by the logic and clarity of the subject matter.
I graduated at the top of my class in high school, and have a thorough knowledge of all core high school subject areas. I love helping students gear up for the GED as it enables them for high level accomplishments down the line.
I aced geometry in 8th grade and have been a huge fan of the subject ever since. For my students that don't instinctually mesh with the subject, I have developed a carefully tailored process based methodology to learn and apply the requisite theorems and principles. Geometry is a very important subject, especially since a great deal of SAT and ACT questions are rooted in geometric principles.
I worked as both an LSAT classroom teacher and a private tutor for Kaplan before attending law school. Since then, I have tutored students for the LSAT on a private basis. I love the LSAT, and especially enjoy solving the logic game and logical reasoning problems. I have a thorough understanding of the material, and compliment that with my experience and expertise gained as a big law firm litigator.
I took pre algebra in sixth grade and received an A+. Since that time, I have helped numerous students understand the subject matter on both a pro-bono and professional basis. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this subject, and fully recognize its importance as a foundational core for algebra, geometry, precalculus, and beyond.
Precalculus is the subject matter that I have taught the most. It is an area where many students initially struggle, but with the right tutelage, eventually thrive. I have developed a number of carefully tailored techniques to get students zipping through the most challenging of topics, such as logarithmic equations, trigonometric functions, probabilities, and sequences. I personally received an "A" in the subject matter during my sophomore year in high school.
I personally scored a 780 on the SAT math section, and have a full and complete understanding of all the questions types. I have helped dozens of students prepare for the SAT, both on a private basis as well as with Kaplan. My test prep curriculum centers around three basic principles: (1) diligent and timed practice, (2) constant review of problems answered incorrectly, and (3) thorough understanding of all tested concepts. I love helping kids master the SAT, and truly enjoy sharing my expertise.
I have helped prepare students for the SAT both as a tutor for Kaplan as well as on a private basis. My strategy centers around three core principles: (1) familiarization with the SAT format and its various question types, (2) a solid understanding of the material, and (3) routine practice. I work closely with all of my students to make sure that they feel totally comfortable with the exam.
I completed trigonometry as part of my precalculus curriculum during my sophomore year. I received an "A" as my overall grade, and have loved the subject matter ever since. I mold my instruction of the subject around the unit circle, which provides an excellent base for understanding the entire breadth of trigonometric functions and their applications.
