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.

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).
