I have 15 + years of teaching and tutoring experience both at university and am the owner of a private tutoring company that has contracted with Michigan State for many years, ghost written test prep materials for large companies, and provided educational services to domestic and foreign government programs.

You are welcome to split my fee with other students without additional cost.

I am a full time data scientist on leave ( until retirement from gainful employment ) from the theoretical physics PhD program at MSU. I have studied physics through quantum field theory and beyond, and my knowledge of physics compares very favorably to that of the typical US theoretical physics PhD, while my knowledge of mathematics, though substantially less than that of a good mathematician, is substantially greater than that of the average US theoretical physics PhD. I did my undergraduate work in mathematics at the University of Minnesota. I hold MA junior high school and high school teaching licenses for physics and mathematics, both for grades 5 -12. I'm egalitarian, eclectic in approach, and eager to help students optimize their hand and avoid pitfalls, particularly pitfalls that, in a just world, would not exist. I can help with:

•AP Calculus AB/BC
•Math SAT II level I or level IIC
•Most college mathematics courses
•Any physics
•PSAT
•SAT
•ACT
•GRE
•GMAT
•MCAT, except for biological sciences ( I got an 'A 'in biology but my conservation biologist friend helped me and living things frighten me; I know organic chemistry but there are people on campus who are much better at organic chem than I will ever be )
•LSAT
•MTEL general exam, physics, and mathematics
•MCAS

I have perfect scores on many math and science standardized exams, and have gotten 99th percentile scores on the verbal sections of the PSAT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT. I recently (12/3/2009) sat for the GRE to get a current score to support a fellowship application, and received an 800 on the quantitative section and a 790 on the verbal section. I have edited college applications, graduate school applications, grant applications, and one successful Rhodes Scholarship application. I love physics, but sometimes I wish I had been a dramaturge, and I think I'd make a good one : ) You can be confident that I can help you with the subjects I've listed that are outside the sciences, and in fact I am an excellent one-stop-shopping resource for your own or your child's college application campaign.

I have taken a year of general and organic chemistry and gotten A's in biology, and I've studied PChem. There are better tutors for biology and for organic chemistry, but I'm a very good inorganic, general, A.P, and high school chem tutor.

I have tutored privately in the Wellesley area for about a year. I have 6 years of college teaching and tutoring experience, and I am happy to share references with you.

I am good at helping students see fast gains on standardized exams scores, by tapping into what they have already learned and also inculcating confidence as well as an understanding of the game theory of the exam.

My style is to help you use the muscles you have already built in your academic training and general life before giving you new tools, with the goal being to help you discover that the thing in front of you is not all that scary after all. I want you to, as quickly as possible, no longer need my services nor those of any other tutor. I like sharing my strengths and seeing my students succeed.

Good luck, and please email any questions!
