I love teaching and I'd love to help you in any subject, though in particular Math or Science. I've tutored before for the SAT, taught 5th/6th graders during my summers in college, and was a Teaching Assistant in college-level math at Harvard.

My credential are:
Perfect SAT score in Math, near-perfect SAT score in Verbal, perfect SAT score in Writing. Perfect SAT subject scores in Math 2, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, US History, Spanish. Scored a 5 in AP Calculus BC, Biology, Chemistry, Physics C: E/M, Physics C: Mechanics, Spanish, English Language, US History. First place in Math in California's Academic Decathlon. Graduated with High Honors from Harvard in Applied Math and Economics, where I achieved an 'A' grade both semesters of Math 25 (One of the hardest freshman math classes in the country- Honors Linear Algebra and Real Analysis), and took seven Graduate-Level Economics Classes.

Most importantly though, I'm an excellent teacher who is down to earth, patient, and very engaging. I'm a business school student here in Philadelphia, and I just plain love to teach.
