I am an experienced Private Math and SAT / ACT Tutor. I provide tutoring in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Calculus, Statistics and SAT, ACT, PSAT, ISEE, SSAT, TACHS, GRE, GMAT and LSAT test preparation. I have helped students achieve dramatic grade improvements and raise their test scores by several hundred points in short periods of time! I accomplish this by focusing on developing a student's problem-solving, critical reasoning and test-taking abilities.

Students have achieved perfect SAT math and essay scores, 450 point improvements and earned full merit scholarships!

I will develop a custom program that enhances her strengths and attacks his weaknesses. Just as no two children are alike, the tutoring program for no two students is exact either.

I enjoy working with gifted students who take honors classes or classes above their grade level. These include students who are taking AP Calculus and AP Statistics, students enrolled in online classes through the Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY) at Stanford University and the Center for Talented Youth (CTY) at The Johns Hopkins University, and students who have entered American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) administered by the Mathematical Association of America.

I earned a master's degree from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, the #1 graduate degree program in applied mathematics.

I serve Fairfield and Westchester Counties including Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Westport, Purchase, Armonk, Rye, Harrison, and White Plains.
