A little bit about me: I am a PhD student at MIT with research focused on applied mathematics and numerical methods in the context of medical devices.

I am genuinely passionate about teaching and would like to tell you a little about my teaching philosophy.

Our biggest ally in learning is our intuition. Consider, for example, the process of walking. Walking is as natural to you as is the process of saying your name. You do not have to think about it every single time, because when you learned how to walk, you truly LEARNED! You understood the mechanics and the logic and that never left your side. Now imagine if you could do that with every single subject? That is my goal.

My goal is to empower you with the underlying intuition that governs the fundamental principles of otherwise complicated subjects.

In an ideal world, learning shouldn't be driven by profits so if you are not satisfied with a lesson or do not fully understand the content, I will not charge you for the session. During the session itself, I will make sure that all your questions are thoroughly addressed and will then work towards challenging you and your thinking. Throughout the course of our sessions, I will offer periodic tests/assessments to gauge your understanding and to challenge your thinking. Also, I have a flexible schedule and offer a 24 hour cancellation policy.

My goal is not to give you an A on a test. My goal is to make you an excellent student. The rewards will automatically follow.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed!
