I have an easy-going style which seems to work well with students who are anxious about science and math.

I have been a chemistry teacher for 17 years at very well-regarded Ridgewood High School. I have tutored all levels of chemistry and physics, including AP level. I worked for many years teaching SAT math prep classes for both Huntington Learning Center and Marmont Academics, and have worked privately with math students as well.
