Bio

I have experience working with students in middle school, high school and college math courses at schools throughout New York, including Collegiate School, Trinity School, Columbia Prep, Hunter College High, The Heschel School, Ramaz School, Horace Mann School, Avenues: The World School, High School for Math, Science and Engineering, Loyola School, Fordham University, NYU, Hunter College, and Pace University.

I have experience working with students in middle school, high school and college math courses at schools throughout New York, including Collegiate School, Trinity School, Columbia Prep, Hunter College High, The Heschel School, Ramaz School, Horace Mann School, Avenues: The World School, High School for Math, Science and Engineering, Loyola School, Fordham University, NYU, Hunter College, and Pace University. I have also worked with many students to meet their SAT and ACT goals - all sections included. Students that I've tutored in the past have gone on to attend several top colleges, including the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, Vanderbilt University, University of Florida (honors college), and NYU, among others.

I firmly believe that every student is capable of high achievement in mathematics, and I'm here to help you and your child feel the same and see great results in any math course or endeavor. Empowering students to see math differently is what I love about my job.

In high school, I was a National Merit Scholar and scored a perfect 800 on my Math SAT, a perfect 800 on Math SAT Level II subject test, and a perfect 800 on my SAT writing/grammar section. I was also consistently the top performing student in all of my math courses. My achievements in high school led to my admission to several top universities and to a full scholarship to Fordham University, which is where I'm currently studying Mathematics. As part of a combined engineering program between Fordham and Columbia University, I will study Operations Research at Columbia University next fall. I worked hard for my scores, grades and achievements, and I've been helping other students do the same for years. I will work to find exactly what it takes to make your child start enjoying and succeeding in math.

Lack of success in math is never due to an inherent incapability, but rather accumulated gaps in previously learned material. My goal is to help my students realize that anyone is perfectly capable of mastering calculus (or any math course, for that matter) and to help them fill in the gaps in their learning that may be holding them back. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing my students make connections and truly understand the material at hand.

*Additionally*
Competition Math coach and Math Enrichment:
I also have years of experience coaching high-level competition mathematics - both privately and for groups/teams - up to the 10th grade level. I have privately coached several students to prepare for the AMC 8 and AMC 10 tests (American Mathematics Competition), and I've even had students who are interested in AMC and competition content purely out of interest and for math enrichment purposes, not for "competition" purposes. Students who are successful on tests like the AMC are almost always highly successful on SAT math (score usually between 750 and 800).

ACT Reading

I have experience working on ACT prep with students of all levels and needs. ACT Reading, though notorious for it's time constraint and difficulty, can be tackled by even the slowest of readers. If a student is willing to put in the work to improve their overall reading abilities and practice new comprehension strategies, he/she will absolutely see results. An added benefit is that improving an ACT Reading score almost always means that a student's general reading skills have improved - something that is helpful for future studies and life in general! A few of my qualifications: - 99+ Percentile SAT Score - Perfect Scores of 800 on SAT Math, SAT Writing, and SAT Math Level II - National Merit Scholar - 99+ percentile PSAT Scorer Highlights of my student's successes (overall SAT scores): -Student accepted to University of Florida Honors College - 200 Point Increase -High School Junior - from a 1450 to 1570 -Student accepted to small private college - from a 760 to 1020

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I've successfully tutored Algebra 1 (and equivalent courses) for over six years. I've worked with students of all ages and capabilities: from a dyslexic student with dyscalculia - a mathematics disability, to students who are looking to achieve top scores on Algebra 1 mathematics competition tests. I've found that Algebra 1 is perhaps the most fundamentally important course in all of high school/middle school math. Without a solid foundation in Algebra 1, success in later math courses becomes far more difficult. I have perfect scores of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I've been tutoring Algebra 2 (and equivalent courses) successfully for over five years. I've worked with students of all ages and capabilities, and Algebra 2 is perhaps my favorite subject in math to tutor. I also have experience coaching Algebra 2 competition level mathematics. I will help you succeed in any Algebra course. I have perfect scores of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II.
Calculus,

Calculus

I've successfully tutored Calculus for over four years. I've worked with students of all ages and capabilities: from grad students to students in high school who are looking to achieve top scores on AP calculus exams. I've found that calculus is not nearly as difficult as most students assume it to be. Most students who struggle in calculus are not struggling because calculus is inherently difficult, but rather because of accumulated gaps in necessary prerequisite knowledge. I work hard to fill in the gaps that are necessary for success while simultaneously teaching calculus itself. On my own AP calculus BC exam in junior year of high school, I scored a 5. A few Qualifications: - 4+ years experience - Score of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II - Score of 5 on AP Calculus BC - Completed Multivariable Calculus 1 and 2 in college
Geometry,

Geometry

I've successfully tutored Geometry for over five years, and I've worked with students of all levels. From proofs, to triangle theorems to 3D geometry, my knowledge and teaching skills will be of great help to you. I strive to make this often abstract subject seem much more manageable. A few Qualifications: - 5+ years experience - Perfect scores of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I've successfully tutored Pre-Algebra (and equivalent courses) for over six years. I've worked with students of all ages and situations: from an autistic student, to students who are looking to achieve top scores on middle school competition tests. I've found that pre-algebra is perhaps the second most fundamentally important course in all of high school/middle school math (behind Algebra 1). Without a solid foundation in pre-algebra, success in later math courses becomes far more difficult. A few Qualifications: - 6+ years experience - Perfect scores of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I've been tutoring Pre-Calculus for four years, and my students have all seen great success. Often, my pre-calculus students struggle with their prerequisite knowledge, so I strive to fill in relevant gaps while simultaneously working through PreCalc problems. This often solves many issues my students are having. I have experience with students of all levels - from college students to young high school students looking for competition math prep. A few Qualifications: - 4+ years experience - Perfect scores of 800 on SAT Math and SAT Math Level II
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I've been helping students improve their SAT math scores for years. Improvements of 100+ points are very common. I've found that if students set a goal and spend ample time studying that they are almost always able to succeed. I will help you/your child achieve great scores. A few of my qualifications: - 99+ Percentile SAT Score - Perfect Scores of 800 on SAT Math, SAT Writing, and SAT Math Level II - National Merit Scholar - 99+ percentile PSAT Scorer Highlights of my student's successes (overall SAT scores): -Student accepted to University of Florida Honors College - 200 Point Increase -High School Junior - from a 1450 to 1570 -Student accepted to small private college - from a 760 to 1020

Sean has a five star understanding of the subject materials, the test, and what it takes to get a great score. He is a fine young man and a wonderful tutor, we are grateful to have him tutor our son.

Sean is very thorough.

Sean is very thorough. He gives his extra effort and provides the necessary materials to improve and prepare my child for the SAT. My child is very comfortable and completely understands his teaching.
