I've always enjoyed math--for me, solving a tricky problem is satisfying in much the same way as filling out a sudoku or crossword puzzle. However, I know that many students have not had such a positive experience with math. As a tutor, I aim to make math accessible to everyone, and to help build student's confidence by breaking down more complicated problems into simpler parts and leading guiding students through problems without doing all the work for them.

I've always enjoyed math--for me, solving a tricky problem is satisfying in much the same way as filling out a sudoku or crossword puzzle. However, I know that many students have not had such a positive experience with math. As a tutor, I aim to make math accessible to everyone, and to help build student's confidence by breaking down more complicated problems into simpler parts and leading guiding students through problems without doing all the work for them. The only way to learn math is to do math, so my role as a tutor is primarily to provide guidance and support to students while they work through practice problems, although I of course adjust my approach depending on where each individual student is starting off.
I've worked with students for over a decade, starting with tutoring classmates in high school. I graduated with a BA in math from Pomona College and an Masters in math from UT Austin, working as a Teaching Assistant at both schools, and also teach Math at the Community College level.
I've taught or TAed math courses at all college levels, from first year College Algebra to Calculus to Differential Equations and Linear Algebra and beyond. I can tutor any standard math course at the high school or college level, except statistics. I'll consider upper-division college courses (beyond the standard calculus/differential equations sequence) on a case-by-case basis, depending on my familiarity with the subject matte.
Please get in touch if you have further questions, or if you want to schedule a tutoring session! I look forward to working with you.
