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.
