Hi!

I just completed my PhD in Mathematics from Duke University where I studied Differential Geometry. I have a passion for teaching and have taught over 10 mathematics courses at the undergraduate level. During my time at Duke I won the Captain LP & Barbara Smith Award for Teaching Excellence two years in a row and had consistently high student evaluations.

Hi!

I just completed my PhD in Mathematics from Duke University where I studied Differential Geometry. I have a passion for teaching and have taught over 10 mathematics courses at the undergraduate level. During my time at Duke I won the Captain LP & Barbara Smith Award for Teaching Excellence two years in a row and had consistently high student evaluations.

Additionally, I've tutored over 60 students at levels ranging from K12 to graduate topics. I have tutored nearly every undergraduate course at Duke University including single/multivariable calculus, ordinary and partial differential equation, linear algebra, probability and statistics, discrete mathematics, topology/differential geometry, probability and statistics, real and complex analysis, and more.

I excel at explaining complicated mathematical concepts in an approachable and intuitive fashion. I truly believe that mathematics should be thought of visually, and my goal as a tutor/teacher is to help the student 'see' the concepts themselves. I prefer methods that teach students to ask the right questions when trying to approach a new problem, instead of simply telling students the answer. I also understand that every student learns differently, and one of my favorite parts about tutoring is discovering which methods are most effective for each student.

I am looking forward to hearing from you! I am mobile and can travel to a space of your choice, or can also host tutoring sessions in my home. I know from experience that every student can succeed at math, I can't wait to help you!
