I am an experienced tutor (I've been doing this for three years) specializing in Calculus, but also with experience teaching math and science at many levels. I did very well in high school (5s on the Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Economics Macro and Micro, English Language, and Physics AP exams), and scored highly on the SAT and SAT subject tests, so I can tutor in most subjects a high school student would need help with. I have experience tutoring for the ACT as well. I attended Columbia University for a year, and I'm currently studying engineering at Santa Monica College with plans to transfer to UCLA.

I am passionate about learning, and I try to instill that passion into my students as well. There is beauty in finding the solution to a complex problem. As important as it is to care about the subject, it's also important to build student-teacher relationships. Each student is an individual who learns differently, so I like to try a variety of teaching methods until I find one that fits a particular student the best. Though grades are important, the process by which we achieve results is equally important. I want to help students become more rigorous, disciplined thinkers, to expand their curiosity and give them to tools to find answers to any questions they have. Better grades will come naturally to students who are interested in learning about the world around them.

ACT Math

I have three years of experience tutoring in high school Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Trigonometry, Precalculus, and Calculus, and experience tutoring specifically for the ACT math section as well.

Algebra 1

I have three years experience tutoring algebra. I've taken advanced math classes throughout high school and am continuing my studies in university, having taken multi-variable calculus and linear algebra. Algebra is the fundamental component of all advanced math and I use it every day.

Algebra 2

I received an A+ in Algebra 2 in high school, I've studied advanced math such as calculus and linear algebra since then at SMC and Columbia University.

Physics

I studied Engineering at Columbia University, I received a 5 on the Physics AP Exam and an 800 on the SAT 2 Physics Subject Test. I have three years of experience tutoring math and science.

Prealgebra

I've studied advanced math such as calculus and linear algebra at SMC and Columbia University. I also have several years of experience tutoring 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students in algebra and pre-algebra.

Precalculus

I've studied calculus, multi-variable calculus, and linear algebra at Columbia University and Santa Monica College. I have three years of experience tutoring both calculus and pre-calculus.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring for 3 years in a variety of subjects including pre-algebra, algebra, calculus, physics, chemistry, American history, and English. I am experienced at developing problem sets, questions, practice essays, and other study techniques tailored to an individual student's needs. Studying requires discipline and interest in the material. I work to develop both in my student by giving them opportunities to work out questions related to the subject and also by explaining the importance and beauty each subject can hold. A student genuinely interested in learning requires only a few pointers to develop good study habits. A student uninterested in learning requires constant encouragement and positive reinforcement, as well as explanations of the value of education. I am an expert in note-taking, summary, and exams, and I work hard to pass these skills onto all my students. I'm currently studying engineering at Santa Monica College with plans to transfer to UCLA.
