I have been tutoring for several years and I have learned a great deal about how to maximize my effectiveness as an educator and how to both stimulate the student's interest in their success and gain confidence in his or her intellectual abilities. I am a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and currently finishing graduate degrees in both psychology and physics. My education has helped me structure my approach as a tutor in that I am different from just a "homework helper." I build relationships with my students and inspire them to do their best by boosting the confidence of each student because academic success ultimately hinges on the student's self confidence.
I work with my students to discover their strengths and weaknesses as well as how they learn best. I use a combination of technology, "real-life" applications of concepts, and student driven lesson planning. This allows each student to have some control in how their sessions will be structured so each session they have to opportunity to be taught in a manner that works best for them - it truly makes a huge difference in their performance. We all know that everyone learns differently, but by working 1-on-1 and taking the time to get to know each student, I can effectively teach each concept differently with each student according to how he or she learns best.

I tutor most of my students from my home or office (both located in Mt. Lebanon). Occasionally I will travel to a student's home under certain circumstances.
