Hello!

I've been a part-time tutor for the past 8 years, with a focus on teaching math at the middle school, high school, and college levels.

Over the course of my education, I came to appreciate the value of knowledgeable, patient, and passionate teachers. Caring teachers tend to understand how academic success can lead to greater life opportunities and personal growth. I've tried to incorporate this attitude in order to enable others to achieve success. My teaching philosophy is to help...

Hello!

I've been a part-time tutor for the past 8 years, with a focus on teaching math at the middle school, high school, and college levels.

Over the course of my education, I came to appreciate the value of knowledgeable, patient, and passionate teachers. Caring teachers tend to understand how academic success can lead to greater life opportunities and personal growth. I've tried to incorporate this attitude in order to enable others to achieve success. My teaching philosophy is to help students build a foundational understanding of the material; it's one thing to be able to memorize the quadratic formula, and another to understand exactly when to apply it. In practice, I've found that the most effective teaching method involves working through example problems and asking questions to pinpoint any areas of confusion.

I recently graduated from college with an MS in Computer Science and a BA in Mathematical Logic. I was a teaching assistant for two years during this time. The most rewarding part was seeing the look on a student's face right as they "got" a concept they had struggled with.

I'll always respond to messages as quickly as possible. Please send me a note if you're interested in scheduling a lesson!

Computer Programming

I've been programming for 8 years -- studied CS in school and worked as a software engineer for a startup. I know that programming can be frustrating to learn (especially towards the beginning), and love helping students learn strategies for getting un-stuck. If you're looking for help with intro CS classes or data structures/algorithms, send me a message!

I have been programming with Python for 8 years, including 2+ years of work experience as a software engineer doing data science and machine learning. I am happy to teach introductory coding skills (variables, conditionals, functions, data structures, etc.) or assist with higher-level projects.

Discrete Math

Studied Logic and CS in university. I was a teaching assistant for a college course that heavily involved discrete math, combinatorics, and logical proofs. During that time I tutored discrete math on the side, and love helping students get past problems with syntax/semantics.
