I have been a full-time classroom teacher, I have taught summer school, and I have tutored many students, from 10 year olds to law students and everything in between!

While my primary area of specialty is math - I majored in Applied Mathematics at Harvard, I scored a 5 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement Exam, and achieved a perfect score on the SAT II Mathematics test - I do also tutor all the major standardized tests.

I have taught everything from pre-algebra through pre-calculus when I was a full time teacher at an elite private school in St Louis, Missouri. That included the full progression of Algebra, Algebra II, Trigonometry etc.

I have also tutored the SAT and the LSAT many times. I scored 99th percentile on the SAT (perfect score on current scale) and 95th on the LSAT.

In all I have over 20 years of experience with countless students in many different subjects. I relate well to young people and I will make our lessons fun and enjoyable - if learning is fun then it becomes easy and interesting.

***PLEASE NOTE:
--Currently my open slots are all day Sat-Sun and on M-F, evenings only.
--On weekends I am happy to drive to any location a reasonable distance from the Cleveland Circle area of Brookline/Boston.
--On weeknights I am happy to travel to your location if it is convenient to the T. Otherwise I tutor in the public libraries of Boston and Brookline.

Thanks for your time and consideration, and best of luck in your studies!!!
