I have more than 6 years of tutoring experience and have been working as a one-on-one tutor for the past three years. I am a graduate of Columbia University with a major in Computer Science and a minor Applied Physics. In high school, I tutored students ranging from 6th grade to 12th grade in mathematics and sciences through an extracurricular math club. I generally worked with the students in groups to help them with their homework or study for tests. More recently I have tutored low-income students through a local organization in New York as well as in-home tutoring.

I am now very good at standardized tests but that was not always true. I’m am one of those individuals who had to work very hard to develop my test taking abilities and to prepare for college entrance exams. Over the course of my studying I was able to raise my score over 370 points and my SAT scores were 99+ percentile in Math, Reading, and Writing during my junior year of High School. I was able to make such a remarkable improvement by reading every SAT study book I could get my hands on and practicing religiously. I have experienced what it is like to try self study and become excellent at SAT and I use that knowledge of test taking strategy and effective practicing methods to get greatest improvement from my students.

Feel free to contact me and we'll discuss a strategy to get you where you want to be!

Algebra 1

I have over 7 years of Algebra 1 tutoring experience. Through my experience, I have found that students are most successfully able to learn and retain algebra through visually conceptualizing both a problem and the format of its solution. This gives students a visual way to remember the step for solving the problems and reorient themselves if they get lost in the process.

I provide my students with ways to easily visualize their algebra problems and teach them how to apply them to problem that they solve.

Algebra 2

I have 5 and 1/2 years of Algebra 2 tutoring experience. Through my experience, I have found that students are most successfully able to learn and retain algebra through visually conceptualizing both a problem and the format of its solution. This gives students a visual way to remember the step for solving the problems and reorient themselves if they get lost in the process.

I provide my students with ways to easily visualize their algebra problems and teach them how to apply them to problem that they solve.

Calculus

I have experience tutoring calculus at both the high school and college level. In addition, I have taken both the AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC exams, as well as 4 semesters of calculus at the college level, including Multivariable Calculus.

Chemistry

I have experience with high school AP chemistry courses, introductory college courses, as well as Computational and Organic Chemistry. I spent 2 years in a research lab at the University of Washington, preforming physical chemistry experiments and designing optical dyes. I also have experience tutoring students for both the AP Chemistry test and The Chemistry SAT II.

Computer Programming

I majored in Computer Science at Columbia University. I have completed coursework in Artificial Intelligence, UI Design, Database Systems, Networking, Data Structures, among many other topics in computer science. I also have spent the past couple of year as full stack developer and I can offer tutoring in Java, C, Java Script, SQL, MySQL, PHP, HTML5, CSS3, and Objective C.

Java

I have been tutoring Java for close to 3 years and have been programming Java part time for about 4.5 years. I recently graduated from Columbia University with a major in Computer Science. I can offer tutoring and support for basic java programming, java based networking, and java data structures.

PHP

I am a full-time php developer. I recently graduated from Columbia University with a degree in Computer Science. While there, I specialized in multimedia applications for web and mobile devices.

I have programming in PHP for 3 years and specialize in writing backend PHP scripts for managing MYSQL databases and analyzing data for Mobile Apps. I also have extensive experience writing PHP scripts to dynamically generate web pages.

Precalculus

I have 3 years of Precalculus tutoring experience. Through my experience, I have found that students are most successfully able to learn and retain Algebra and Precalculus concepts through visually conceptualizing both a problem and the format of its solution. This gives students a visual way to remember the steps for solving a problem and reorient themselves if they get lost in the process.

I provide my students with ways to easily visualize their Algebra and Precalculus problems and teach them how to apply them to problem that they solve.

PSAT

I have tutored low-income students through a local organization in New York as well as in-home tutoring.

I am now very good at standardized tests but that was not always true. I’m am one of those individuals who had to work very hard to develop my test taking abilities and to prepare for college entrance exams. Over the course of my studying I was able to raise my score over 370 points and my SAT scores were 99+ percentile in Math, Reading, and Writing during my junior year of High School. I was able to make such a remarkable improvement by reading every SAT study book I could get my hands on and practicing religiously. Since then I have tutored 6 different students for their SAT and PSAT test. All of my students have experienced at least a 200 point increase over their first 3 months of tutoring. I have experienced what it is like to try self study and become excellent at SAT and I use that knowledge of test taking strategy and effective practicing methods to get greatest improvement from my students.

Trigonometry

I have been tutoring Precalculus and Trigonometry for the past 3 years. Through my experience, I have found that students are most successfully able to learn and retain Trig and Precalculus concepts through visually conceptualizing a problem and reasoning through their algebra using their visual understanding. This gives students a visual way to remember the steps for solving a problem and reorient themselves if they get lost in the process.

I provide my students with ways to easily visualize their Trigonometry and Precalculus problems and teach them how to apply them to problem that they solve.

Web Design

I'm a computer science major at Columbia University. I have over 5 years of experience working in web design. I am fluent in HTML5 and CSS3. An example of my work may be seen upon request. I have more than 6 years of tutoring experience and have been working as a one-on-one tutor for the past three years.
