About Toren

I'm a tutor with a lifelong passion for math and physics who brings to my lessons a love of teaching and a commitment to helping students succeed in their math and physics classes. I have been tutoring for a year and have successfully helped students ranging from junior high school to college improve their grades and test scores.

I graduated Cornell University with a degree in Materials Science and Engineering, where I did research on polymer physics and the use of hydrogels in a novel anti-obesity medical device. Prior to college, I received the prize for top mathematics student in my high school. I received A's in my college physics and math classes and scored 780 on my SAT math.

As a student, I was familiar with an intense math and science workload myself and have come to appreciate how critical it is to have a teacher who is able to accomplish two main things: match their teaching style to a student's unique learning process and help make abstract formulas more intuitively understandable and concrete. As a teacher, I pride myself on being able to achieve both of these.

In my lessons, I practice a "hands off" approach to the degree possible, asking appropriate questions and providing an explanation/walk through of a problem when necessary. My overall goal is to help students build self confidence and realize their own intellectual potential.

I find the learning process fascinating and enjoy explaining physics concepts/laws and how the formulas that encapsulate these laws relate to the physical world. It is truly rewarding when a frustrated student is finally able to solve a challenging problem.

I tutor full-time and offer lessons every day of the week, depending on my availability. My lessons are held either in person or online for students who are unable to meet.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in physics and math!
