About Ian

I have several thousand hours of tutoring experience, successfully improving the academic lives of hundreds of students. If you select me as your tutor, I will do all that I can to translate my experience of over 10 years of study at MIT and Harvard and perfect standardized test scores into success for you. My standards of teaching are extremely high, as is my excellent ability to assess your needs and teach you what you need in a manner that best suits your personal learning style. I have a real passion for teaching people of all ages in virtually all fields of study. I have earned perfect math and science scores on the vast majority of standardized testing that I have taken (800 SAT, 36 ACT, 800 GRE, etc.). I have tutored several students and adults of ages ranging from 6-55 in a variety of areas. I am able to teach at all levels, including elementary school, high school, college, and post-graduate students. I am firmly confident in my ability to teach you what you need to know in order to succeed, and teach you how to think so that you can use efficient problem solving techniques in life after our work together. I have historically most commonly taught math, science, programming, German, and standardized test prep (SAT/ACT/GMAT/GRE/PSAT/LSAT/asvab), though I am open to many other fields of study.

I have completed / am completing five engineering degrees from MIT (two Bachelor's, two Master's, and a Ph.D.), where I also earned minors in Applied International Studies and German. I have also completed part of the full-time MBA program at Harvard University. I love to teach, and would be glad to speak with you about anything you'd like to learn, review, or otherwise reinforce. I am here for you, and when I work for you, you will have all of my attention, and what I believe to be a very powerful academic resource at your assistance.

I consider myself a real people-person who thrives when interacting with others. I rose to the rank of Eagle Scout back in scouting during my high school days, and love to take on leadership roles of increasing responsibility, including teaching my students what they need in order to succeed. I come from a transient military family and have five brothers, so I am used to frequently meeting and working with new people. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring, and hope to continue broadening the academic horizons of students here in the Greater Boston Area.

I was valedictorian of my high school and have a wealth of knowledge and personal experience with tutoring students for school and standardized test preparation--I would be happy to share what I know with you.

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.

Business

I am currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration at Harvard University, where I learn with some of the top business leaders from around the world. I have worked as a product planning intern under the business division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, where I benchmarked company products against competitors offerings and generated recommendations for future company product portfolios. I furthermore have earned a master's degree from MIT in technological leadership, a major component of which includes business and economics instruction.

Python

I have taken a Python-specific programming course at MIT along with other programming courses, have tutored several students in Python, and am intermediate to advanced in Python programming proficiency.

My daughter is in algebra 2 honors. Ian went over some problems that my daughter was struggling with and guided her in finding the answers. This one session was very helpful.
