I love tutoring. I believe that one-to-one interaction is the key to success. Besides teaching my students what to learn, I also teach my students how to learn. I provide my students with study skills and good study habits, as well as techniques on how to break complex issues down so as not to be overwhelmed.

I hold a bachelor of science in computer science. I graduated in 2005 and have been tutoring for more than 10 years. I am currently pursuing a second degree in physics towards a PhD.

I have more than 10 years of experience with a very high success rate. My students have been accepted to Columbia University, Dartmouth, UPenn, Princeton University, and Stanford University.

Whether you have difficulties in math, physics, chemistry, or Earth science, or you need help preparing for your next test, or you want to master all the key concepts before you take on the SAT, ACT, AP, and Regents Exams, I am happy to help.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed.

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.

Computer Science

I earned a bachelor of science in computer science. I have built several websites, designed, implemented, and maintained databases, worked as a Network and Systems Administrator and as an IT Consultant. I tutored coding in various computer programming languages such as C, C++, Java, PHP, ASP, HTML, MySQL.

Logic

As part of the required curriculum to earning my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science I have taken a course in Logic and I received an A, the highest possible grade. I have tutored Logic for over 10 years with a very high success rate. Besides teaching my students how to reason, I also teach them how to excel in Logic.

Regents

I have been preparing students for the Regents Exams for over 10 years with a very high success rate. I had several students who had failed the Regents Exams before I started tutoring them, and who excelled at the Regents Exams after I tutored them. I helped students develop study skills and techniques that in turn helped my students to succeed at the Regents Exams.
