Hi, my name is Wesley. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a perfect GPA and a degree in mathematics. I am available to tutor in a variety of math, physics, and statistics subjects as well as standardized test preparation (see list).
I have more than 10 years of teaching experience, being a Math Olympiad instructor at Avid Academy, an SAT teacher at ACI academy, and a private tutor for middle school, high school, college, and adult students. For a while, I was a Wall Street hedge fund analyst, but later decided to return to tutoring because I found it more fulfilling to help students reach their educational goals. Math has always been my passion, and I tailor my teaching methods to best match each individual student. Through my experience, I know which tutoring strategies work and which just create busywork. Additionally, I can also recommend which books and study guides to use and how to best prepare for the specific exam.
Most importantly, I will teach a student how to attack the problem and how to think of the solution. Anyone can pick up study guides and practice exam books and go through it while checking their work with solutions at the back. However, the book doesn't tell you what you are doing wrong or how to improve yourself. If you want to be sure to do well on your first attempt, I will teach you how to approach problems, techniques, timing and approaches that cannot be found in any one single study guide but rather a compilation of years of experience and expertise.
I have tutored students in many schools and colleges including but not limited to the following:
High School: Exeter, Andover, Stuyvesant, Thomas Jefferson
Colleges: NYU, Columbia, Harvard, UC Berkeley
I look forward to hearing from you!
P.S. My areas of expertise include Pre-Algebra, Algebra I&II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus (AP and college level), AP Statistics, AP Physics, IB Math, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, SAT Math Levels I and II, GRE Math, GMAT Math
I only tutor in-person and am comfortable coming to your home or to an alternate location. I frequently give lessons at coffee shops in Midtown East or the Upper East Side. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you! Hi, my name is Wesley. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a perfect GPA and a degree in mathematics.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I received an A+ in Algebra II.
I competed in a chess tournament in Elementary school and placed first. I am passionate about the game and play it weekly! I have many guides and field manuals about chess strategy that I can teach my students.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in mathematics and have an analytical background
I earned an A+ in Honors Geometry.
