I have been teaching and tutoring for most of my life. I love my job teaching high school and middle school science
and working one on one with motivated students of all ages to improve how they learn. I have successfully tutored a variety of subjects in a student-centered, time-efficient manner; I have successfully helped students raise their SAT
scores for over a decade.
My students have described my teaching as personal, caring, and challenging. I pride myself on my ability to teach students how to get the job done on their own--that way, their success truly belongs to them.
Students I have taught and tutored can be found all over the country: working for the NIH, dancing at the Metropolitan Opera, and studying at rigorous institutions such as Harvard, UCLA, the Naval Academy, and Johns Hopkins Medical School.
A young medical school graduate, I decided to leave my primary care residency simply because I was not happy. I found my way into teaching after working one on one with students from competitive, independent schools in South Florida. After a successful and enjoyable 10 year teaching career in Miami, I moved to the DC area last summer to be closer to my friends and family. This past school year I had the pleasure of teaching 8th grade science. I am equally excited to be returning to teach high school science for the upcoming school year.
I look forward to working with you and your family to maximize your potential, improve your study and test-taking skills, and build your confidence as an independent learner.

I am willing to discuss rate adjustments based on student and family needs. I have tutored small classes of students in the past and am willing to do this again.
