Hello! I'm a seasoned tutor but quite new to WyzAnt, so here's a bit about my qualifications:

I have four years of experience tutoring children of all academic levels from Pre-K through Graduate School and formerly served as the director of a tutoring center, a position that I left earlier this year to return to the teaching that I love. I hold BA degrees in both Physics and Philosophy from Grinnell College, have authored solutions manuals for Differential Equations textbooks, edited published academic work and literary journals, and been nominated for a teaching award by my students for a university course on the relationship between science and religion.

Additionally, I have developed curricula and individualized programs for SAT, ACT, SAT-II, GRE, ISEE, and HSPT students. My students show an average score increase of 3.4 points on the ACT and 310 points on the SAT, and I have achieved perfect scores on all sections of the ACT, Math and Writing on the SAT (720 in Critical Reading), an 800 on the Math lv. B SAT-II, a 750 on the Chemistry SAT-II, and an 800 on the Physics SAT-II. I have also served as a college adviser for dozens of students and can assist with applications and essays as well as offer general advice with the college application process.

I default to an informal style of teaching in all areas and prefer to work with talented, hard-working, ambitious students, although I have extensive experience serving as an academic adviser and IEP advocate in the California public school system as well (as a private entity).

I believe quite strongly that education works best when relationships are built upon trust. As such, I encourage any prospective students and their families to contact me before beginning instruction in order to ensure that everyone is on the same page with respect to goals, expectations, and preferences.

Finally, I'm not nearly as formal in person as the above makes me seem, honest! I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve academic success in whatever area you desire!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

As the former director of a tutoring center, I have had the privilege of helping dozens of students with the college application process, including the application itself, the college search, essays, interview coaching, and I've even been known to write a letter of recommendation when adequately impressed. My former students have attended universities including Stanford, Claremont McKenna, Berkeley, and USC.

Differential Equations

I hold a degree in Physics from Grinnell College and served as the lead author for two editions of a Differential Equations solutions manual. I achieved a 100% (unweighted) average in my college DiffEq course as well, and look forward to discussing the wonderful world of eigenvalues and boundary conditions.

Study Skills

As the former director of a tutoring center, I have developed and maintained dozens of study-skills-focused programs for students of all ages, from kindergarten through college. Each student faces unique challenges within the realm of study skills, and I use a thorough survey and interview to determine how best to achieve the goals of each individual student and family.

Detailed and Engaging — Jeremy has been amazing!!! He is the first tutor able to get my son to interact and really like it. I will pass by the room where they are working and it sounds as if it's two people having a pleasant and energetic conversation. In the past, my son has tried to find ways to get out of a simple 1 hour session. Now, not only does he get his materials prepared in advance, he actually mentioned that i ...
