Being able to change people’s lives by helping them realize their own potential for understanding concepts, and for solving problems through creative methods is why I find teaching so rewarding.

For the last 14 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all ages in various subjects where I have had the opportunity to help changes lives, and further refine my teaching methods. I have taught in universities, public charter schools, private learning centers, and have also done in-home tutoring.

I use a dynamic student-based teaching method, where I take a thorough evaluation of the students’ skills and interests, understand their goals, and create a learning strategy that will work and also keep them inspired.

The way I see it, they are all connected - Math, Science, Music, Dance. Being able to solve challenging problems requires creative thinking, and proper discipline. My teaching method aims at getting the desired results though dynamic understanding and creative thinking.

I take notes and report all my tutoring sessions to the parents/guardians and students. I also ask for feedback to make sure both the student and the parent are completely satisfied. If not, I will not charge for any classes.

While I do have a 24-hr cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes as I understand there can be last minute emergency situations.

I am able to tutor at my location in Arlington, VA or also at a location more convenient for the student.

I wish you success, and look forward to hearing from you!
