Bio

As an instructor at the University of Washington, I had the pleasure of teaching math to students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Clearly what works for one student may not be helpful for another, so I built my courses around multiple learning styles. Nevertheless I paid close attention to the teaching methods that were useful to students across the board.

As an instructor at the University of Washington, I had the pleasure of teaching math to students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Clearly what works for one student may not be helpful for another, so I built my courses around multiple learning styles. Nevertheless I paid close attention to the teaching methods that were useful to students across the board. By the time I was done with my Master's at UW, I was getting highly positive teaching reviews above the departmental average, and students at the end of the quarter would routinely ask about taking future classes with me. I received thank you cards, heartfelt goodbyes, and even once a standing ovation on the last day of class. I attribute all of this to paying close attention to how students learn.

I've taught classes at the middle school, high school and college levels, and have over ten years experience tutoring at these levels. When I began my own tutoring service, I built upon previous training and experience at the University of Minnesota and a top test prep firm. Clients preparing for the SAT or ACT reliably saw significant increases in their scores. Other clients often reported feeling less stress around exams and better understanding of the material.

Whatever your math goal is, I will help you achieve it.

I have an MS in Mathematics from the University of Washington (2019). While there I taught the entire calculus sequence, precalculus for business majors, and differential equations.

I scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and a 740 on the English portion.

I scored a perfect (combined) 340 on the GRE.

Most importantly I have over 10 years experience tutoring, with education training from a number of teaching and tutoring organizations including the University of Washington.

No matter what area you are studying, math is hard. But it doesn't have to be frustrating. Please feel welcome to contact me and ask me anything. There will be no pressure to set up a schedule. Take care and happy studies!

Discrete Math

I have a BA and a MS in mathematics. I've studied various forms of what could be considered "discrete math," including graph theory, combinatorics, network optimization, etc. I've also helped compile a discrete math curriculum for my graduate advisor, who specializes in combinatorics. Finally, my Masters thesis featured graph theory heavily.
