Princeton University (CEE)
Stanford University (Master's)
If you are looking for an outstanding tutor, then look no further. I am an intelligent, dynamic and funny fellow that possesses a penchant for teaching students of all ages and ability levels. I graduated from Princeton University in 2005 with my bachelor's degree in structural engineering and then from Stanford University in 2007 with my master's degree in the same discipline. The emphasis of my course work was in engineering, so I have a very strong background in upper level physics and mathematics. However, don't let my engineering focus fool you into thinking that I am strictly a math and science guy. My education required that I engage deeply in many other subjects and I pride myself on being an eloquent and well-balanced intellectual.
Of course, the ability to learn and the ability to teach are two separate skill sets; luckily I have the latter as well as the former. I have extensive experience tutoring for 3 different tutoring companies in which I taught calculus, trigonometry, geometry, algebra, physics, and chemistry. Additionally, I have tutored dozens of students in the ACT, SAT, and SAT subject tests. I have had very good success with all my clients across all subjects because I customize my lessons to the distinct needs of each individual. I am adept at breaking complex concepts down into simpler and more manageable parts and I excel at making the lesson material understandable. Beyond that, I often rely on my experience as a swim coach and former athlete to build a good rapport with my students, and I strive to be as much a mentor as I am a tutor. I also work particularly well with teenagers, who offer a challenge unique to young adults on the brink of intellectual maturity.
If you are interested in my services, do not hesitate to contact me. After we discuss your specific needs, I can quickly develop a customized lesson plan and can begin working with you immediately. I eagerly await the opportunity to work with you and help you perform at the peak of your abilities. If you are looking for an outstanding tutor, then look no further.

I offer a discounted rate of $160/hr for online tutoring.
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.
I have tutored the Math portion of the ACT exam multiple times over the past 7 years. Please refer to my subject qualifications on my profile.
I have a passion for swimming that is reflected by my knowledge of the sport and in the manner that I teach it. I am a former high school and age group swim coach who has instructed dozens of swimmers, both in large groups and one-on-one. My coaching credentials are augmented by my experience as a Division I collegiate swimmer at Princeton University, where I swam for 4 years, one of which as co-captain. My forte is breastroke, however I possess a deep understanding of all 4 strokes as well as modern training methods.
I take an engineer's approach to technique analysis and I am adept at breaking down my swimmers' strokes to identify its strengths and weaknesses. I subscribe to the belief that an athlete's stroke technique is the foundation of a successful swimming career, and this philosophy forms the core of my own teaching approach. My lessons often include extensive drill work as well as concentrated sessions on starts and turns.
I have coached swimmers of all ability levels and I customize my lessons to the individual needs of each athlete. For advanced swimmers that compete at elite levels, I provide more sophisticated instruction that often includes tempo training and distance per stroke analysis, among other methods. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.
