Hi there, and welcome to WyzAnt Tutoring!

I'm a Princeton University graduate of the Politics Department who loves helping inquiring minds understand and achieve their academic and personal intellectual goals. I tutor middle school, high school, or college undergrad students in a number of areas, with a special emphasis on Mathematics and Government. I am able to assist students in a diverse number of courses from algebra, geometry and physics, to German language and cinema. I am also an experienced SAT prep instructor in all three areas of the SAT1 Test. Whether you have a particular issue remembering the German dative direct articles or if you need a complete tutorial in advanced calculus, I will be glad to spend as much or as little time as is necessary to help you, your child, friend or sibling succeed.

In addition, if you are interested in finding a summer activity for your son or daughter, I am also a former DIV 1 collegiate swimmer with over 17 years' experience in competitive aquatics and certified swimming instructor. I can provide personal or group lessons in water polo as well as recreational and competitive swimming.

So please feel free to email any time, day or night, and we can start you down your road to success!


UPDATE
I am currently only scheduling weekend lessons at this time.
