Ivy League grad with 10+ years of tutoring experience offering HS and College math and science tutoring

Methodology

My approach to each student is catered to their individual needs. I'm very patient and I enjoy meeting new students and making sure they feel confident; trust me that I will never make you feel "dumb" or stressed for not understanding something, my goal is 100% to make sure that you achieve as much success as possible and to be someone who you can be totally honest with regarding your understanding of a topic. One of the major advantages of a tutor over a teacher or TA is that you can ask questions freely with no fear of judgement or those awkward situations where a teacher thinks you should already know something you don't (everyone has gaps in their knowledge). I am entirely here to make sure you succeed.

In my spare time I play rugby - I love staying active, lifting and working out regularly, and I look forward to getting back into those things as we move past coronavirus.

I put a lot of effort into adapting my tutoring style to maximize the learning and success of each of my students. Where one student might need a thorough refresher on high school math, another student may need someone who pushes them to master harder and harder concepts. My subject mastery reaches up through college calculus 3 and linear algebra, and I am happy to help any students with any topic, high school or college up to that point.

I use Zoom for meetings with students (and parents in the case of high school tutoring), and I also cover the cost of an online whiteboard to facilitate back-and-forth discussion of equations and concepts with students.

Background

I'm an Ivy League grad with over 10 years of experience working as a tutor, in which time I've helped students from many different backgrounds achieve their goals and improve their scores. I have many success stories of students going from C's to A's in their classes, and SAT students have seen an average score increase of over 200 points. I provide tutoring for high school and college math through calculus 3 and graduate linear algebra, as well as all undergrad chemistry and physics courses. Currently I am a graduate student researching Arctic ecosystems and sea-ice physics, with plans to pursue a Ph.D. starting next year. I also love staying active and competing, regularly playing club rugby and other sports.
