Bio

Dear parents and students,

I'm a full-time SAT and physics tutor with a love of teaching and a track record of improving students' scores.

Most of my SAT students improve their score by 250 points, some much more. Most of my physics students get in the A range on exams after working with me.

Dear parents and students,

I'm a full-time SAT and physics tutor with a love of teaching and a track record of improving students' scores.

Most of my SAT students improve their score by 250 points, some much more. Most of my physics students get in the A range on exams after working with me.

I've been tutoring for 3+ years. Before that, I founded and worked at technology startups. I graduated Cornell University with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering, where I did research on polymer physics and received A's in physics and math courses. Prior to college, I received the prize for top mathematics student in my high school and scored 780 on both the SAT verbal and math sections.

As a student, I had an intense math and science workload and came to appreciate having a teacher able to accomplish two main things:
1. Explain, in simple language, the intuition behind concepts and formulas so the student knows where they come from and feels good about working with them.
2. Match their teaching to the student's individual learning style.
As a teacher, I pride myself on being able to achieve both of these.

I also find that confidence strongly contributes to learning and academic success. I try to encourage students as much as possible and provide explanations that correspond with their own thinking process.

SAT tutoring:
I focus on breaking the preparation process into smaller, manageable parts, and teach proven, Kaplan-adapted problem solving tactics. I use diagnostic test results to hone in on areas of weakness.
I have taught students with a variety of learning styles including those with processing issues.

Physics tutoring:
I have a life-long love of physics and enjoy explaining concepts/laws and how they relate to the physical world. It is truly rewarding when a frustrated student is finally able to understand and solve challenging problems.

Logistics:
I offer lessons every day of the week and can travel to most areas in the city. Additionally, I offer online sessions for those unable to meet.

Please contact me with any questions or to speak further. I look forward to hearing from you.

Great Teacher

Toren was excellent. Really helped explain the concepts, and was patient. I feel like I really gained some new insights, and I have nothing but positive things to say. Thank you, Toren.

Wonderful!!! Helped my daughter ace her exam!

Toren was very helpful and patient. He really helped my daughter prepare for her physics test. She went into the exam feeling confident and did amazingly well, thanks to Toren!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Toren spent four hours with my daughter teaching her a unit in AP Physics that she did not understand. He was very thorough and knowledgeable and even sent my daughter a follow up email later that day on areas he recognized she still did not grasp.

Abigail, 1 lesson with Toren

Has deep knowledge for common core both Math & ELA

He helped my son for NY STATE TEST and he got best score ever! Toren tried very hard to figure out area that my son was struggling and did most effective job. ---Jun

Flexible and Knowledgeable Tutor!

Toren was able to meet with me at any time that I needed and on short notice. He preped me for my Physics 207 final and for the first time I knew what I was doing on the exam! Would highly recommend him for any subject he offers! Thank you again!
