I've been a classroom teacher in both elite private schools, and local public schools. My "real world" experience includes mechanical engineering for an optical fiber manufacturer, stage management for a professional theater, and restaurant management. Students I've coached have attended schools like MIT and Cal Tech. My degrees are from MIT and Yale, and I have attended programs at Cornell and Johns Hopkins. But none of that is what matters.
What matters is that I've been where your students are trying to get to. I've picked up the habits of excellence that can help get them there. I understand that there are several approaches to any given problem, and have the patience to present each of them in different ways until one makes sense to your student. I love what I do, and even if I can't get your student to love it too, I guarantee my passion will help them hate it less. I have the life experiences to give real world examples when needed, and the teaching experience to come up with illustrative or challenging examples as needed. I can work within a school's curriculum or shape a program from scratch. And I can have fun doing it. I've been a classroom teacher in both elite private schools, and local public schools.

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.
