About Tyler

I am a current Brown University undergraduate studying Applied Math and Biology. I scored a 2400 on the SAT reasoning test and 800s on the Math 2, Biology M, and French SAT subject tests. My results on these exams helped me find a place at a school that both challenges and supports me in my development as a student and as a person. I have several years of formal experience tutoring science and math at the high school and college level along with countless hours of more informal tutoring for my friends and acquaintances. I am a former volunteer tutor for Brown SAT/College Prep, which collaborates with Breakthrough Providence and is funded by the Swearer Center for Public Service.

I choose to do work as a tutor because I strongly believe in the beauty of mathematical structures and scientific theories. Rarely do students realize that the material they study in class represents some of the greatest achievements of the human intellect. And unfortunately some teachers do not to emphasize the elegance of the subjects they teach, instead favoring a formulaic approach to learning that relies far too heavily on dry exercises and lots of memorization. In my experience, no matter how motivated a student may be at the beginning of the course, this style of teaching inevitably leads to boredom-induced burnout.

When I tutor, I focus on revealing the logical framework that forms the basis for what may seem to be a random collection of facts. I treat my students as intellectually mature beings who shouldn't be forced to complete wave upon wave of repetitive drills. And importantly, I ensure that my students understand that studying math and science is rewarding not only for their wide range of practical applications, but also for their inherent beauty.

I enjoy sharing knowledge and I take delight in my students' success. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of any assistance!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

SAT Math

I attained a perfect score of 800 on the math section of the SAT reasoning exam. I also got a perfect score of 800 on the Level 2 Math SAT subject test.
