I am a Phillips Academy Andover graduate and a current Brown University student. I scored a 2400 on the SAT reasoning test and 800s on the Math 2, Biology M, and French SAT subject tests. My results on these exams helped garner admission to several Ivy League institutions, Harvard and Princeton among them. I have two years of formal experience tutoring science and writing at the high school level along with countless hours of more informal tutoring for my friends. I am currently a volunteer tutor with Brown SAT Prep, a program funded by the Swearer Center for Public Service.
I choose to do work as a tutor because I strongly believe in the beauty of mathematical structures and scientific theories. Rarely do students realize that the material they study in class represents some of the greatest achievements of the human intellect. And unfortunately, many teachers do not to emphasize the elegance of the subjects they teach, instead favoring a formulaic approach to learning that relies far too heavily on dry exercises and lots of memorization. In my experience, no matter how motivated a student may be at the beginning of the course, this style of teaching inevitably leads to boredom-induced burnout.
When I tutor, I focus on revealing the logical framework surrounding a seemingly random collection of facts. I treat my students as intellectually mature beings who shouldn't be forced to complete wave upon wave of repetitive drills. And finally, I ensure that my students understand that studying math and science is rewarding not only for their wide range of practical applications, but also for their inherent beauty.
I enjoy sharing knowledge and I take delight in my students' success. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of any assistance.
