About Ethan


Bio

As a Harvard Ph.D. Candidate with a B.S from the College of William and Mary (Phi Beta Kappa, Summa Cum Laude), I know exactly how to help students with their STEM courses and standardized test preparation. I have a track record of successfully helping students with their courses and standardized exams. I most commonly help students prepare for all sections of their SAT, ACT, ISEE/SSAT exams, as well as with STEM courses such as AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and Python.

As a Harvard Ph.D. Candidate with a B.S from the College of William and Mary (Phi Beta Kappa, Summa Cum Laude), I know exactly how to help students with their STEM courses and standardized test preparation. I have a track record of successfully helping students with their courses and standardized exams. I most commonly help students prepare for all sections of their SAT, ACT, ISEE/SSAT exams, as well as with STEM courses such as AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and Python.

One distinct advantage that I have over other tutors is that my knowledge is not just theoretical. I have taught introductory and upper-level biology courses and served as the leader of the world-class 2017 William & Mary iGEM team (#2 in the world). I have won awards for mathematical and computational modeling and biology and have published several scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. Further, because my acceptance into a Harvard Ph.D. program required success on many different high-stakes standardized tests, I know exactly how and what students need to study to succeed.

Many high-performing students run into real trouble on their standardized tests because they’ve falsely been led to believe that the standardized tests assess their knowledge of complicated concepts. In truth, standardized tests assess relatively simple ideas presented in a convoluted manner. As a tutor, I help students get into the mind of the test maker and see what test questions are really asking. This enables them to answer more quickly and correctly, improving their score. In general, students who prepare with me for around a month see improvements of about 15 percentile points, equivalent to approximately 4-5 points on the ACT and 150 points on the SAT.

I respond to inquiries quickly and have plenty of time available to tutor students. Please feel free to contact me if you want to set up a lesson or if you want to set up a video or phone meeting to discuss if I would be a good fit for your student.

Python,

Python

I'm the perfect tutor for anyone struggling with python, data science, machine learning, or who wants to learn more about scientific and data analytic python packages such as NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Plotly, and sklearn. I'm a Harvard Ph.D. candidate and a huge python fanatic who frequently uses scientific and data analytic packages (SciPy, NumPy, pandas) for his work. I have a great deal of practical and theoretical experience using python for data science, frequently using python to format, clean and present data, and to make mathematical models. In the past, I've also used python to analyze data for quantitative finance firms. During my undergraduate coursework, I took multiple classes focusing on introductory python, python-based data structures, and big data analysis using python, so I'm familiar with the type of material common to these courses. I've helped many students before, and I'm looking forward to helping you too!

ADHD

ADHD

As someone with ADHD myself, I can tell you that learning and succeeding with ADHD is not always easy. I provide tutoring and life-coaching help for teens and young adults who have ADHD. Students with ADHD need specialized structure in their lives (accountability, immediate short term rewards), as well as systems put in place (by themselves and/or parents) to enable their success. As someone who has personally struggled with ADHD, I have strong working knowledge of the types of actions and systems that students can use to try to better organize themselves for success. There is no magic bullet solution and every student is unique, so I try to place a high value on experimentation and providing students resources to figure out what works best for them.

Since then, I've taken the GRE (the SAT for graduate students) and scored 95+% for reading, math, and writing. (165/170, 167/170, 5.0/6.0). Students who work with me for around a month typically see score increases of around 150 points.
SSAT,

SSAT

I am a top 1% Wyzant tutor who has helped scores of students prepare for the SSAT. I know that many parents find the process of preparing their child for the SSAT to be both confusing and disorienting. What material should they use to prepare, and for how long should their child practice? How can they identify what areas their child can most improve in? I can help. As an expert test prep tutor with a B.S. in Applied Math and Biology, my goal is to improve students scores by any eans. Depending on the student, my tutoring may consist of concept review, test taking strategy, practice drills and more. One challenge for the SSAT in particular is that there is relatively little preparation material available. Luckily, I not only own all of the major SSAT prep books and am familiar with their strengths and weaknesses, but I also have some additional preparation material of my own. Please feel free to reach out whenever you are ready to help your child get prepared.

Ethan is truly gifted in his area of expertise and beyond. He can work on any problem be it as complicated as can. He is a thorough professional and extremely prompt in his responses and commitment to his students/clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to cut the chase and contact the right person who will understand the core of the problem and will 100% come up with a logical guidance and solution.

Phenomenal Tutor, Expert in a Variety of Topics

Ethan helped me with computer science algorithms. Ethan was able to help me with an assignment involving an advanced algorithm that he hadn't had much experience with before. He was able to quickly understand the problem, the solution, and quickly and effectively teach me. Leaving me with a deeper understanding and the confidence to implement the algorithm in future contexts.

Knowledge

He teaches new strategies and helps me see the mistakes that I usually don’t see. Am example of this when we are doing a problem and I accidentally skip over a word that is crucial to the problem, he would tell me about it and we go over it.

Patient and very knowledgeable!

Ethan is working with my twins. He has a very calm and patient demeanor. He has a wonderful way of teaching them while making them feel comfortable to express if they don't understand. He makes the process less stressful and really helps my children be less anxious about the test in general. He always comes prepared and has access to multiple worksheets and sample tests.
