About Gus

I began tutoring math and science as an economics major at Columbia University in the City of New York. I later decided to return to school and follow a premedical track at Rutgers University. While there, I ran the tutoring center and taught chemistry, physics and organic chemistry. I also tutored in math subjects up to and including precalculus. I have recently taken up SAT tutoring because most schools, including the Ivy Leagues are now utilizing this exam exclusively to decide on their student admissions. My students have scored a minimum of a 1300 on the NEW SAT.

Over the last several years I have fine-tuned my craft and have become adept at explaining difficult topics in a simplistic manner. It is my goal as a tutor to give a student academic confidence and independence. I enjoy working with students, because it gives me pleasure to watch them reach their true potential.

As an economics major, I had to take math courses all the way through calculus. My GPA was a 3.7. I was a straight A student in high school and scored well above the national average on the national exams, including the SAT.

My schedule is relatively flexible. I am available throughout the day and most of the evening. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.
