I am a Cornell Law School graduate with an expertise in math and science. I have tutored autistic adults, math students, English students, and test takers. I specialize in teaching the mathematical concepts and reading skills tested by standardized tests like the GED, ACT, SAT, and GRE.
I owe my love of math to a fantastic middle school teacher that emphasized conceptual understandings and thought experiments. Since then, I’ve taken courses in mental math techniques, discrete math, differential equations, linear algebra, statistics, and calculus. I also taught statistics and forensic science to attorneys after graduating law school. I can help you or your child understand the fundamentals of mathematics and ignite a passion for solving math problems.
My love of English comes out of my struggles to learn other languages. Over the years I’ve ventured into Spanish, French, Japanese, Mandarin, and Turkish, which has given me a lot of insight into effective communication. I’ve also taught persuasive writing to undergraduate students and won awards for my academic writing. Skill at reading and writing is not acquired overnight, but I can give you the tools to improve your vocabulary, your writing, and your reading comprehension.
Test-taking, of course, involves more than just understanding the fundamentals of mathematics and English; it also requires strong test-taking strategies. Students can be intimidated by problems that require extensive computation, but knowing a handful of patterns and approaching problems from alternative perspectives can eliminate unnecessary work. I can help you learn how to spend your test time wisely.
I can meet at your house or at a nearby library - my preference is to meet at the Mount Pleasant Public Library, a few blocks away from the Columbia Heights metro station and right next to a Sixteenth Street bus stop.
I look very forward to working with you and I’m excited to get started!
