I am a full-time tutor from Villa Park who deeply enjoys math. I find creative ways to help concepts settle naturally with each of my students, who usually find my enthusiasm contagious. I keep their thoughts at the forefront so they discover the truths as their own instead of memorizing lists of rules that look arbitrary. My goal is to have each of my students feel true ownership of the material.
Although I've tutored many subjects, my focus right now is on algebra (algebra I & II), the courses leading up to it (elementary math & pre-algebra), and its application (geometry & trigonometry), which also covers the math portion of most standardized testing (MAP, EXPLORE, SSAT, PSAT, GED, ASVAB, ACT, SAT, GMAT, GRE etc.). I currently have openings:
- before 2pm on weekdays
- Sunday evening (7:30pm or later)
- Tuesday evening (8:30pm or later)
- Thursday evening (8:30pm or later)
Aside from tutoring, I am also a docent at the Oriental Institute (University of Chicago), learning to code for iOS (first project will be an algebra app! So excited!), and playing around with a mathematical work of Archimedes (for fun). My profile didn't have room for all my college majors, so here they are:
- Mathematics (prep for PhD study)
- Classical Languages (Greek, Latin, Sanskrit)
- Classical Studies (think Greek/Latin history)
- Classical Archaeology (my interest is analyzing data from 3000-5000 years ago, near east)
Thanks for finding out more about me! Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments.
