Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hello! I'm Ethan, and I'm a PhD student at Columbia University. I've been tutoring computer science and writing, as well as helping students with college applications, for over four years. I have worked with hundreds of students, from high school to adult, on school work, high school science competitions, professional programming projects, and more. I am currently accepting new students for the 2016/2017 school year, whether for occasional homework help or regular lessons. Please see [link removed] for more information.

In my sophomore year of college I served as a teaching assistant for an accelerated scientific computing course at Northwestern University, and I went on to teach that class for the next two years. In graduate school I've spent three years as a teaching assistant for masters and undergraduate level courses. As a TA and instructor, I've gained extensive experience working one-on-one with students from varying backgrounds and experience levels. I have learned to tailor my explanations of course material to each student in order to maximize their understanding. I bring this teaching and tutoring experience to my lessons, along with the flexibility to tailor my instruction to your specific needs. My schedule is flexible, and I'm happy to offer a trial lesson to see if we're a good fit.

I was born in Seattle, grew up in Iowa City, IA, and now live in New York. I graduated from Northwestern University, majoring in computer science and physics. I lived in Iowa for fifteen years, spending my high school summers chasing tornadoes and developing software for aircraft cockpit display systems at the University of Iowa.
