Bio

I am a math PhD student at the University of MD with eight years of experience tutoring math and math SAT prep. I work hard to help my students grasp difficult math concepts, learn to think critically, and become self-confident. I have tutored math to 100+ students ranging from elementary schoolers to graduate students.

I am a math PhD student at the University of MD with eight years of experience tutoring math and math SAT prep. I work hard to help my students grasp difficult math concepts, learn to think critically, and become self-confident. I have tutored math to 100+ students ranging from elementary schoolers to graduate students.

It is not my goal to impress you with my own grades, test scores, and awards -- being an effective tutor takes much more than that. I do my best to understand a problem from a student's perspective and explain new topics in the context of ideas that they have already mastered.

I tutor because it is rewarding to see my students have an 'aha!' moment as they figure out a tricky problem. I enjoy finding creative ways to challenge and motivate them. It is exciting to get a phone call from a student and hear how much they improved their SAT score, learn that a quiz went really well, or find out that they decided to major in math.

I have excellent references. Please get in touch with me if you'd like to speak to a parent of one of my current students or if you'd like a copy of my resume.

I have an MS in Scientific Computation and work almost exclusively in MATLAB. I have experience tutoring scientific computation and numerical analysis, subjects which are usually taught using MATLAB as the programming language. I work with MATLAB daily in my own research.

Elementary (K-6th)

Over the years, I have spent a lot of time with children as a teacher, camp counselor, nanny, and friend. I have tutored elementary-school students for the past six years, mostly in math. I am creative and enthusiastic, and as a math grad student, also very passionate about math! I spent two years volunteering at my old elementary school twice a week, working with my own first-grade teacher who now teaches third grade. I worked one-on-one with students who struggled with math, reading, or writing.

As a teenager, I noticed that interacting with kids gave me a special kind of energy and joy. Now as a graduate student pursuing a PhD in math, although I have worked with children for many years, they continue to delight me, surprise me, and teach me new things. Along with tutoring, I also offer sessions for kids ages 5 and up during which we play math games and solve math 'puzzles' to develop critical thinking skills and, of course, a love of math. This has been fun both for kids struggling with basic math concepts and for gifted kids who enjoy a completely different kind of math challenge than what they learn at school.

Differential Equations

As an applied math graduate student, I do a lot of mathematical modeling which inevitably involves using differential equations. I have taken classes in both ordinary and partial differential equations, and a class on finite element methods. I have tutored students in differential equations courses which have often incorporated MATLAB programming into the curriculum.
