I graduated from Downingtown STEM Academy and am currently a student from Bloomsburg University majoring in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science. I will be entering my Sophomore year of college and would like to help students learn Mathematics and/or chess.

I have previously tutored a few students in Mathematics, with them receiving significant grade boosts in their classes. I think it is very important for everyone to strive to learn as much as they can, and be successful as possible to set themselves in a better position for the future.

I have had much success in my math courses thus far, including calculus, receiving A's in them. I have tutored mathematics for middle school students in the past with them improving their grade greatly. My services include anything from Calculus 2 and below.

Most believe chess is just a game, however, it has many carryovers to subjects such as mathematics and critical thinking/ problem solving skills. When a person truly gets interested in the game, they realize how fun, enjoyable, and relaxing it really is.

I played competitive chess for five years for the US Chess Federation, with my rating topping around 1800. I would be able to teach mostly beginners the fundamentals and improve their game so they can find success in such a unique and fun game.

Please feel free to contact me for any information regarding tutoring. I look forward to teaching math, chess, or both to my students.

Chess

I have competed in 60 chess tournaments over the course of five years, finding success in even state level tournaments. My 1800 rating for the chess federation puts me at a well above average skill level with the ability to teach the game at a sufficient level. I have taught and improved the game of many young students, no matter the skill level.
