Hi there! My name is Kairn (pronounced Kai-ren), and If you're looking for a seasoned SAT, math, or physics tutor you've come to the right person. After taking AP Calculus and AP Physics in junior year of high school, I began tutoring the subjects to classmates -- accumulating almost 8 years of experience since. While studying mechanical engineering at Harvard I worked for the Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel, tutoring other Harvard students in high-level calculus and a range of introductory physics courses. Having taught both subjects at the high school and college level, I specialize in AP physics and AP calculus. That being said, I am highly proficient at tutoring any high school level math or physics and have a reputation for teaching the material in a way that sticks.

In addition to my experience at the Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel (BSC), I volunteered for three years at Phillip Brooks House Association (PBHA), group tutoring students grades 6-12 in math, science, and SAT prep. I received a perfect score on the SAT, and my students have boosted their scores by 300+ points.

It is my belief that the friendship between the student and tutor is crucial to the students success. I take pride in having students look forward to our sessions, and do my best to present the material in a way that is interesting and engaging. If you are looking for a highly personable and effective tutor, I would love to work with you. I live in the financial district and can reach most parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens fairly easily - though I am happy to do online sessions as well. Take care, I look forward to hearing from you!

Knowledgeable and patient

Excellent tutor! Patient and knowledgeable. At the end of the session, I felt a lot more comfortable about the topic. I will use him again for myself and my son.
