I am on leave from the Economics Ph. D. program at Stanford after a triple major in Physics, Mathematics, and Economics at Williams College. I have worked as a teacher, tutor, camp organizer, writer, and editor in the meanwhile and enjoy teaching a diverse variety of students and subjects.

I have thousands of hours of one-on-one teaching, tutoring, and curriculum development experience over the past 15 years (8 years in Palo Alto) and I am familiar with classes at local schools, many Stanford classes, local and national Standards, and standardized tests.

I have had success tutoring local high school and Stanford students in paper writing, statistics, economics, math, and physics. I have taught software engineers and other professionals statistics, writing, and machine learning. I also enjoy tutoring younger kids (5th - 8th grade) in writing, math, and science, as well as preparing them for the upper and middle SSAT and ISEE tests.

I have advised successful applicants to Ivy League schools, Stanford, MIT, Williams College, UCs and other top undergraduate programs as well as top National and International Business (HEC, INSEAD) and other graduate programs (such as the Singularity Institute [~2% admission rate] Graduate Studies Program at NASA).

I have also worked as a textbook author and editor for CK-12. I authored several chapters for physics and math textbooks, wrote a solution manual to an entire physics textbook (solving every problem) and compiled, edited, and illustrated a highly reviewed Astronomy Textbook.

I have also helped organize a yearly science-themed summer camp and prepared students for math and physics contests. I enjoy learning, cooking, and juggling. I also like to read. I try to teach the organization of knowledge coherently with content for more efficient and fun learning.

Physics,

Physics

I have studied and researched in Physics (also authored papers with hundreds of citations and won several national awards) since high school. I majored in Physics in college and have been teaching and tutoring it for over 10 years. I have worked as a physics writer and editor and particularly enjoy helping students who feel that it is not their strong suit. I can relate it well to writers and artists as well as those with a penchant for numbers. I also authored a solution manual for an entire physics textbook after solving every problem and so I can almost literally say I have seen them all!
