Bio

I've been tutoring students in math and physics for over eight years. In my time as a tutor, I've come to realize that 90% of the time, tutoring is about asking the right questions. With the right questions, students can find answers on their own, and truly build their problem-solving muscles.

I've been tutoring students in math and physics for over eight years. In my time as a tutor, I've come to realize that 90% of the time, tutoring is about asking the right questions. With the right questions, students can find answers on their own, and truly build their problem-solving muscles.

I started tutoring at Rockland Community College in 2014. At RCC, I tutored students across all math course offerings - from remedial math to linear algebra. Additionally, my students had vastly different background, ranging from adult learners returning to school after years in the workforce, to high school students taking additional classes in community college.

I graduated from MIT in 2019 with a Bachelor's in physics and minor in math, and TA'd 8.02, freshman E&M, for two semesters. I spent a year developing working as a physics curriculum developer, before switching over to tutoring full-time. I specialize in helping students develop clarity and mastery in physics, and excel in preparing students for the AP Physics I, AP Physics C, and Calculus AB/BC exams.

I look forward to working with you! Please reach out with any questions you may have - I'm easy to reach, and will quickly be able to determine if I can provide the help you need.

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Esther helped me greatly with my college physics E&M class and understanding the material. She has a thorough understanding of the material and was able walk me through all of my questions. Thanks to her help I was able to get an A in the class.

Excellent Tutor!

Esther has made a tremendous difference with my sons ability to understand the higher level concepts of physics. Highly recommend her.

John, 11 lessons with Esther

Intelligent and efficient tutor.

Esther has been a great tutor. She helps me with AP Physics C and AP Calculus BC. She is very efficient and punctual. She is highly intelligent and well-educated, but is good at explaining things on my level. My grades in both classes have improved a lot. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Tutor

Esther was great, worked very well with my son on his Physics C. She multiple concepts at a perfect pace. He’s more confident with the course. He said he Learn more in one hour than he has in weeks of school work.

Efficient, knowledgeable tutor.

Esther’s tutoring was helpful for me when I needed help with physics. I would come to sessions with a set of problems I wanted to work through, and she would immediately figure out the best approach to solve each problem and guide me through it; her efficiency and speed were very impressive. She also provided me with extra practice problems. Esther is extremely knowledgeable, and she really knows how to make the most of each session! Thank you so much for your time and help!
