I am currently a student at the University of Michigan's College of Engineering. In my high school and college career, I have tutored many students in various math, science, and computer subjects, including Computer Science, math from Algebra I to Calculus II, Statistics, Chemistry, Physics, Web Design, and more, and have helped them significantly improve their understanding in their subjects.

While I may not have the certifications that many tutors have earned, I can assure you that I am well qualified in my subject areas. I currently maintain a 3.912 GPA at Michigan. I also maintained a 4.0 GPA in high school while taking many AP courses including AP Chemistry, AP Physics C (Mechanics and E&M), AP Calculus BC, Calculus III, AP Statistics, as well as several English and History AP's.

Aside from taking programming courses in college, I have also written three iOS applications and embarked on various other software projects over the years in my free time, gaining significant experience in many aspects of computer programming and web design. I also interned for USAA during the summer of 2014 as a Java developer.

For those of you looking for a tutor for your student, I hope that you will look at my relative youth as a positive quality, as I can often relate to younger students more easily than older teachers and I understand the concepts that frustrate them.

I look forward to meeting you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

My best official ACT English score was a 35 on a test in which I scored a 35 composite. I have taken the test only twice, the first of which I scored a 33 composite. I understand very well exactly what the ACT English section tests on and what is needed to perform well on the test.

ACT Math

My best official ACT math score was a 36 on a test in which I scored a 35 composite. I have taken the test only twice, the first of which I scored a 33 composite. I understand very well exactly what the ACT math section tests on and what is needed to perform well on the test.

I also have many ACT resources I would love to share with students to help them prepare.

ACT Reading

My best official ACT reading score was a 33 on a test in which I scored a 35 composite.

I also have many ACT resources I would love to share with students to help them prepare.

ACT Science

I also have many ACT resources I would love to share with students to help them prepare.

Algebra 1

I completed Algebra 1 in the 7th grade. Afterwards, I have gone on to take many more math courses up to and through Calculus III. But all further math is based on the foundation of Algebra, with which I am extremely familiar.

C

I have developed two iOS applications and have been involved in several other software projects. I have experience in C, Objective-C, MATLAB, Macro Express, and TradeStation's EasyLanguage, as well as limited experience in several other programming languages.

Much of my work has been in MATLAB's Simulink/Stateflow and the code generation process. Currently, I am a student at the University of Michigan's College of Engineering.

C++

I have worked with C++ for several years now and have taken multiple computer science classes that use C++ as the primary programming language. I am familiar with many standard libraries and am comfortable with concepts that range from simple user I/O to more complex and abstract object-oriented programming ideas.

Calculus

I have completed Calculus I, II, and III (Calculus I and II were completed as part of an AP Calculus BC course) and earned As in all courses. I also scored a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam.

I have assisted many friends and other students in the subject, and have helped them achieve better grades on their subsequent tests. My passion for math and science ensures I will find the best possible method of ensuring you understand the important, although sometimes difficult concepts of Calculus.

Cello

I have played the cello for 8 years. In my public education, I served as principle cellist in my school orchestras for nearly every concert. I was selected to participate in the Middle School All-State Orchestra, and have earned all 1's (highest score) at MSBOA Solo & Ensemble competitions. I have attended Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp several times, serving as principle cellist for their symphony orchestra, as well as participated in the Metropolitan Youth Symphony for one year, serving as principle cellist in the Concert Orchestra.

Throughout this time, I have spent 3 years taking private lessons as well, under the teaching of an accomplished professional cellist and whose husband is a cellist in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Not only has that improved my skills as a cellist, I have gained valuable insight into the process of mentoring another musician.

I will work with you at your level, from basic technical skills and intonation, to more advanced facets of musicianship like musicality. I will use our first session as an opportunity to understand your strengths and weaknesses, and will lay out a course for the following sessions, consisting of technical passages as well as beautiful works.

Computer Programming

I have developed two iOS applications and have been involved in several other software projects. I have experience in C/C++, Objective-C, Java, MATLAB, Macro Express, and TradeStation's EasyLanguage, as well as limited experience in several other programming languages.

Much of my work has been in iOS development as well as MATLAB's Simulink/Stateflow code generation process. Currently, I am a student at the University of Michigan's College of Engineering.

Dreamweaver

I have taken a course on web design, which used Adobe Dreamweaver extensively. I am familiar with the tool, as well as the basics of HTML and CSS. While I am not an expert web designer, I can certainly help anyone who is a beginner to web design and wishes to improve their skills.

Elementary Math

I have had experience in teaching Elementary Math in my position as a Math Olympiads coach. My Math Olympiads team included both elementary and middle school children, who attended weekly meetings where they learned key mathematical concepts and subsequently participated in five competition tests throughout the year. Several students even achieved perfect scores!

Macintosh

I have used a Mac for several years and am very familiar with its user interface. I am also a registered Apple developer and am involved in developing several iOS apps.

MATLAB

I have developed two iOS applications and have been involved in several other software projects. I have experience in C, Objective-C, MATLAB, Macro Express, and TradeStation's EasyLanguage, as well as limited experience in several other programming languages.

Much of my work has been in MATLAB's Simulink/Stateflow and the code generation process. Currently, I am a student at the University of Michigan's College of Engineering.

Physics

I have taken two years of physics, one year of honors high school physics and one year of AP Physics C. I scored 5's on both the Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism AP tests. I have a strong interest in the sciences and my passion for sharing that is reflected in my tutoring.

Statistics

I have taken AP Statistics in high school, receiving an A in the class and a 5 on the AP test. I am very comfortable with not only the statistical concepts covered in first year statistics courses, but also the logical thinking necessary to understand them, which I will use to my advantage in ensuring my students fully grasp the subject.
