I am a recent graduate from Caltech, where I studied mathematics. My interests range from the sciences to humanities, focusing especially on math, physics, and philosophy. I am currently focusing on research, and my area of expertise is algebraic combinatorics.
I have been tutoring for 10 years now, and I've had the pleasure of working with many students of different levels. Most of my students are gifted high-school and college students. The subjects I specialize in tutoring are mathematics...

With Shane math can be enjoyable !
Shane is helping my son, a junior in HS, with his preparation for AMC and AIME. I have never seen him before coming out of class with a smile on his face, saying "very interesting!" I asked myself, "What did I just see? What did I just hear?" If you are a parent looking for a math teacher for your gifted child, I strongly recommend Shane. You can experience the same as I did.

In one word: EXTRAORDINARY
I was really curious to try this tutor who had amazing reviews and an exceptional perfect-rating of 5 stars. Now, after taking a few lessons, I can honestly say that if it were possible – I would even rate him 6 stars. This tutor, Shane, besides being one of the sharpest professionals, he is first and foremost a great person – AND HE REALLY CARES. Highly recommended.

Awesome Tutor!
Shane is an awesome tutor. Math concepts can be abstract and difficult to grasp right away, but Shane can explain one concept in so many different ways until you understand it. He also uses real life examples so abstract concepts feel more approachable. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient when you ask questions. His ability to clarify logical concepts has helped me tremendously!

Confident Tutor That Addresses Issues with Calm and Clarity
I had difficulty with an assignment from a graduate level Electrical Engineering class at UCLA. Shane's calmness and confidence in his comprehension of the material really put me at ease. The student should feel the tutor answers all of their questions and Shane did with me. He explained the theories behind the problems so that they can be applied for future use. Flexible scheduling and making topics relatable, what more could you ask from a tutor? I would definitely recommend Shane to my colleagues.

Extremely knowledgeable with advanced linear algebra and abstract
Helped me understand my homework and would not move onto the next problem until he new I understood. I would definitely recommend him. I will be seeing him again. I am a 3rd year math major was ready to drop my 2 math classes and my first tutoring lesson was today and I walked away with a positive attitude and will be staying in my classes
