Hello! I am a graduate student at MIT, where I graduated in 2011 with two Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering as well as minors in Applied International Studies and German. I really enjoy teaching, and would be glad to speak with you about anything you'd like to learn, review, or otherwise reinforce. I have tutored several students and adults of ages ranging from 10-55 in a variety of areas including math, science, engineering, and English. I am able to tutor at all levels, including elementary school, high school, college, and post-graduate students.

I consider myself a real people person who thrives when interacting with and teaching others. I come from a military family and have five brothers, so I am used to frequently meeting and working with new people. I have extensive experience training and preparing my students for standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and tutoring, and hope to continue broadening the academic horizons of students here in the Pacific Northwest.

I was valedictorian of my high school, and have scored perfect scores in mathematics and science (e.g. 800 SAT and 36 ACT) on most standardized tests that I have taken including the SAT, ACT, GRE, and ASVAB. I have a wealth of knowledge and personal experience with tutoring students for school and standardized test preparation, which I hope to effectively share with many others!
