Looking for a smart, engaging, experienced tutor who loves helping students reach their potential? Look no further!

I have helped dozens of students succeed both in person and online over the course of 6 years of tutoring experience. I specialize in test prep (LSAT, ACT, SAT, and more) and math (Algebra 1 and up). I have tutored other subjects like chemistry and physics and am willing to work on any subject I'm confident I can help with.

Looking for a smart, engaging, experienced tutor who loves helping students reach their potential? Look no further!

I have helped dozens of students succeed both in person and online over the course of 6 years of tutoring experience. I specialize in test prep (LSAT, ACT, SAT, and more) and math (Algebra 1 and up). I have tutored other subjects like chemistry and physics and am willing to work on any subject I'm confident I can help with.

I hold a master’s degree (education: 7-12 math), and I have 2 years of classroom teaching experience. My tutoring and classroom experience are both in a range of environments with a range of student backgrounds and abilities.

As a student myself, I have had excellent results in both coursework and standardized testing, including: perfect SAT, 35 ACT (99th %ile), 173 LSAT (99th %ile), 4.3 high school GPA, 3.96 undergraduate GPA, and multiple 5s on AP tests. I have a proven track record of applying that experience to boost both students' test scores and their true understanding of the material.

My approach centers around encouraging students to share what they already know and build on that knowledge. Even if they think they don't know much, I ask them to speculate and refine their knowledge from that point. This approach helps increase confidence, highlight and correct errors and weaknesses in understanding, and build true mastery of the material -- and confidence in their mastery.

I am also a firm believer in learning by doing -- natural for mathematics and test prep, of course, where we can work through problem sets. That approach takes on slightly different forms with other subjects, but always centers around the student leading the work, with me assisting and supporting.

I look forward to building your success together!
