Brown University (Environmental Scienc)
I am a rising senior at Brown University pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies with a focus on Sustainability in Development.
I graduated from West Islip High School as class valedictorian in 2013. My tutoring career began on a mission trip to El Salvador in which I tutored children from different villages in English and Math.

I want to help more students find those moments of clarity in whatever subject they are struggling in so that they can have more confidence in their abilities and succeed. My tutoring philosophy is to give students the skills and tools they need to understand and learn without telling them how to do everything. I teach students to practice to perfection, which involves re-doing problems until they get it right the first time, which demonstrates complete understanding. My tutoring style is characterized by patience and I'm very attentive, making sure they are truly understanding when I ask the question, "does that make sense?"
I have tutored dozens of students in Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, and ACT/SAT math as well as several adults for GED exams. I'm an experienced, patient, and understanding tutor who guarantees real results.

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.
