About Mia


Bio

When it comes to tutoring, I like to focus on the "why" of solving questions as well as the "how." I have tutored math, reading/writing, and physics since the beginning of high school.

My SAT and ACT scores were both in the 99th percentile (740 SAT EBRW/760 SAT Math, 35 ACT Reading/Writing/Math/Science). I enjoy helping others learn the strategy behind succeeding on standardized tests, as well as teaching tricks to get there. I like to help students learn the methods behind doing well on...

When it comes to tutoring, I like to focus on the "why" of solving questions as well as the "how." I have tutored math, reading/writing, and physics since the beginning of high school.

My SAT and ACT scores were both in the 99th percentile (740 SAT EBRW/760 SAT Math, 35 ACT Reading/Writing/Math/Science). I enjoy helping others learn the strategy behind succeeding on standardized tests, as well as teaching tricks to get there. I like to help students learn the methods behind doing well on each section of standardized tests and how they differ. Additionally, I focus on practice problems and familiarizing students with what the real tests will "feel" like.

As a physics tutor, I have helped students with subjects ranging from simple mechanics to my highest level class, Quantum Mechanics 2. I focus on demonstrating how equations and concepts relate to one another, as well as how to use logic to work through tough problems before relying solely on math. However, I enjoy explaining the ins and outs of using math to solve a problem, with methods they can repeat and retain. In high school I was a state-ranked competing member of Florida Mu Alpha Theta, a timed, competitive mathematics organization, and took 7 AP® courses.

Now, I am a second-year studying astrophysics at a top 30 university, and enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of physics and mathematics with others, as well as my passion for the English language! Please feel free to contact me and set up a time to meet! I look forward to working with you.

Knowledgeable and flexible/professional tutor!!

Have taken few lessons (and have ongoing lessons) from Mia for SAT, it doesn’t take long to appreciate not just her knowledge and strategies but her flexibility and responsiveness as well. Mia has a great thought process and is equally adept at SAT Reading and Math alike - fortunate to be learning from her and would recommend her without a doubt.

Awesome tutor!!!

Mia has done an amazing job helping my son get prepared for his Calculus and Physics exams. She is so knowledgable and patient. She stays on target and makes the most out of their time together and she not only encourages him but also complements him. She is a great fit!! So happy to have found her!

Karolyn , 25 lessons with Mia

Absolutely Amazing

Mia was very patient and able to work through problems at a level my daughter was able to grasp easily. Her ability to break down questions aides in the test taking process.

Susana, 13 lessons with Mia

Awesome, knowledgeable and patient teacher

Mia was very patient and supportive in helping my 11th grader prepare for her Physics AP exam. After searching through this website of the qualified teachers, we found that the initial trial lesson to the several regular lessons we did after selecting her was all very useful. Mia and my daughter connected well and we hope the extra awesome tutoring Mia provided will help her excel in her AP exams as well. We tried to do in person tutoring as well but that didn't pan out but we are so glad it didn't as we wouldn't have met Mia and had this tremendous opportunity with her. We would definitely recommend Mia for anyone needing tutoring in Physics and anything else she wants to tutor because she knows how to get the lessons across. Thanks a bunch Mia!

Excellent Teacher! Super helpful!!

Mia K. was extremely helpful, kind, and patient, and ultimately provided a great session. I gained a massive understanding on the various topics included in the SAT, and I’m confident that my score will improve from her helpful tips!!

Bella, 1 lesson with Mia

Went above any beyond

Mia was prepared ahead of time. She was able to prep my daughter for the ACT exam with courtesy and professionalism. Mia also showed that she has empathic tendencies and good reasoning perception. We will definitely use her again as needed :)

Cj, 1 lesson with Mia

Knowledgable with great explanations

Mia went through every concept with great detail. She explained everything perfectly and used additional diagrams to help me understand thoroughly. Highly recommend!
