I love teaching! My teaching style is very student-centered, and I will adapt my teaching to leverage your strengths, your interests, and your unique learning style. Whatever the subject, there is always a way to make it interesting and fun! And as your tutor, finding that way is an important part of my job, because you learn best when you are genuinely engaged.

In addition to masters degrees in computer science and business, I also earned a masters in Educational Psychology - the science of how we learn. I have extensive experience tutoring one-on-one and in small groups, and classroom teaching experience at the college level.

Math is one of my favorite subjects to teach, because there are few experiences as rewarding as watching a student have that breakthrough moment when they really get it. Too often, math instructors have a natural aptitude for math, but little ability to break it down and explain it to students. Not only do I thoroughly understand the material, but I also know how to explain it, and to recognize and correct my student's misunderstanding. I've taught many students who believed they were just no good at math, but when provided with an intuitive explanation that engaged their common sense, discovered they could not only do it, but excel at it. I won't just walk you through the steps of solving a specific problem. I'll give you a deep understanding of the solution, and develop problem-solving strategies you can bring to the next challenge.

When it comes to reading and writing, there are specific skills you'll need to acquire to excel on standardized tests. The good news is, all of these skills can be acquired by reading and writing on topics that actually interest you. In fact, the fundamental skills are best learned not by focusing on long dry passages that bore you to tears, but by focusing on subjects where you are truly engaged. Once you have the fundamentals, then we can branch out into topics that are a little outside your comfort zone. And yes, as your test date approaches, we'll have to work through some of the more tedious passages. But we can focus most of our time on reading and writing about things you actually care about. Rather than test prep being painful, it can be fun and lead to a deeper knowledge of a subject you love!

If you want a tutoring experience that is highly customized to your specific needs, I encourage you to reach out to me. I would love to help you achieve your academic goals!
