I am here to help you prepare for the hardest tests you'll face before heading off to college or graduate school: the Math and Science tests of all varieties, whether they be for the SAT, ACT, or classroom work.
To give you a bit of my background: I graduated from Harvard College with a degree in History and Science with a focus in Astrophysics— a concentration that allowed me to take all the math and physics required for a full degree, but tempered with the social analysis and critical thinking required to translate scientific concepts into comprehensible theses. Outside of class, I spent most of my time working with superconducting radio telescopes. I have worked with some of the premiere telescopes on the planet, and these experiences which often find their way into my lessons as real-life example problems!
My experience with the material that I teach goes all the way back to high school. I focused heavily on math and science, ultimately taking 12 Advanced Placement courses- including six in math and sciences. I went on to score in the 99th percentile on my SATs in Math, Verbal, and Writing. My extensive experience with and deep understanding of the subject matter ensures you have a tutor that can not only tell whether you are wrong or right, but can provide the comprehensive explanations that are critical to ensuring comprehension.
Currently, I am about to begin pursuing my MBA at Stanford Graduate School of Business with a focus in either finance or organizational behavior, both utilizing abstract analysis techniques that rely primarily on math I learned in high school.
However, don't let that sound intimidating! I have taught math, science, SAT preparation, and essay writing workshops full time in two countries, and have been tutoring part time for almost nine years. Whatever challenge you may be facing or goal you would like to reach, I've likely faced it or been there before!
I specialize in making complex material easy to understand. I work hard to make the subjects that are often most difficult to grasp easier to learn by using three simple steps: First, we break down the material into individual concepts, many of which form a single lesson. Second, I teach the concepts using as many different explanations as necessary to ensure you understand completely. Third, we test your understanding as you demonstrate your new learning by exploring how the concepts relate and build on one another.
I promise to build from the ground up, one step at a time, making sure you never feel lost - whether we are reviewing exponents or working through tensor calculus.
I've loved math and science since I was very young. I played with chemistry sets and circuit builders from the time I was eight years old. And that love of discovery - of understanding a little more about the world around us - is something I have never lost and hope to instill in each of you. So whether you think algebra truly is a foreign language, or you'd like to gain a better understanding of partial derivatives, please reach out! I would love to hear your goals and discuss how we might best meet them.
Hope to hear from you soon!
