About Grace

I began tutoring as a student tutor at Boston Latin's Saturday Success school, and have been doing it ever since.

I was in the UK from 2009-2013 (just moved back!) while completing my doctorate at Oxford University. During that time have seen my students win places at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, Harvard and Stanford. I am now back in Boston working as an adjunct professor within the Physics department of Boston University.

Many moons ago when I took my SATs I received a 1600 (out of 1600 as it was those years ago).

I love to teach and believe that any child can learn math and science with the right person. I do not take on very many students at a time as I like to offer my students personalized attention over the long term. I think it's best when a student becomes comfortable with their tutor and trusts that they are in good hands. If you would like any references please don't be afraid to ask!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra for almost 15 years! I have developed tons of tricks to get through even the trickiest of problems and have no problem teaching them to your child. With Algebra the most mistakes are made by skipping steps, so a systematic approach is often best!

Calculus

Integrations and Differentiations are my favorite parts of math! I used to run a walk-in math center at a community college in upstate NY for students struggling with Pre-Calculus through Multi-Variable Calculus. Calc may be a bit confusing, but if you know the right tricks it can also be kinda fun...kind of like a giant math puzzle.

Chemical Engineering

I have both a BS and an MS in Chemical Engineering and a PhD in biomedical Engineering. I have been a Teaching assistant for Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Fluids, and Lab classes. I am also going to be teaching Fluid Dynamics at Boston University as an adjunct.

SAT Math

I received an 800 on my SAT math when I took the exam and have helped students prepare for the SATs in two different countries!
