Because I’ve always greatly valued both knowledge and communication, it was a natural fit for me to become a tutor. Fortunately, too, I have a subject in which I’m highly skilled, and that subject is mathematics!
I have a long pedigree as a mathematical problem solver. In college, I achieved the highest score at my school (NYU) on the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition. After my junior year of high school, I was one of six students selected to be on the United States’ team for the 40th International Mathematical Olympiad in Bucharest, Romania. For even longer, I have worked on solving mathematical problems in my spare time. Now, I would like to convey to my students not only the skills required to tackle difficult problems, but also, perhaps, the joy involved.
I currently work mostly with high schoolers, although I have taught students as young as six years old, and on up to the college level — I’ve been doing this since 2004! Roles of mine have included training students for standardized tests (including the SAT and SAT Subject Test), helping with their homework, simply fostering in them an enjoyment of mathematics, and everything in between.
I have prepared students for the American Mathematics Contests (AMCs), the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), the Mandelbrot Competition, the Princeton University Mathematics Competition (PUMaC), and the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT). In addition to these competitions, I have taught Olympiad-level problem solving (proofs) to high schoolers.
I would love to work with you as a problem-solving tutor. Please let me know if you’re interested!
