My services are great for students and prospective students studying for standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT) and /or who need help with school coursework. I was educated at West Point and Cornell University where I was in the top 5% of my class and received a degree in Economics and Mandarin Chinese. I also studied abroad at Beijing University (China's first college) and East China Normal University. My undergraduate curriculum was extremely heavy in advanced mathematics, English, applied sciences and of course my fields of study (Econ / Mandarin).
I am new to Wyzant, but have been tutoring students for over 15 years in a range of subjects and have worked with graduates of West Point, Harvard, London School of Economics, Cornell, UPENN and numerous other top tier universities. I have also lent my services to both a Marshall Scholar and a Truman Scholar.
While I help students develop tricks for memorization, I emphasize understanding the theory and the "why" behind particularly challenging concepts so that the student can apply that understanding to new problems he or she has not confronted before in the past.
Professionally, I have founded a venture capital backed technology startup, worked as an investment banker and private equity professional on Wall St. and in San Francisco and have also served in the US Army. I'm here because I love education and I love seeing people, particularly those who are down on school or stressed about coursework, achieve those little lightbulb moments, when they realize they really can be good at academics and achieve their goals.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions!
