My teaching style: I prefer to direct students toward answers instead of giving the student the correct answer after a single wrong answer. Usually this involves determining where in the thought process the student is stuck and giving a little nudge in the right direction. Afterward, I double check with the student to make sure the concept is understood before moving on. I am very patient and willing to wait until the student understands the concepts, but I also understand that time is money, and won't spend an entire session on one question. I'm very personable and have tutored and mentored students for the better part of the past ten years. I like to incorporate analogies and real world examples into my lessons to help student gain a better grasp of abstract concepts.
About me: I graduated from MIT with a bachelor's in Materials Science and Engineering. Following that, I earned my master's at Columbia University in the same field. Materials Science has a large focus on applied chemistry, but also involves a bit of math as well. I am currently working as a Process Engineer at a start-up company north of Boston. I also enjoy reading various genres (science, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, business, etc.) in my spare time and recently published a book of my own.
Scheduling Note: Since I work during the day, most of my tutoring availability is in the evening during the week and weekends. I only meet in public places (libraries, coffee shops, etc.) so please keep that in mind when determining a location for sessions.
