As a graduate of Princeton University's Mechanical Engineering program, my areas of expertise include Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Calculus, and Statistics. However, I enjoy tutoring pre-med and standardize exams more, including Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, SAT Math I, SAT Physics, SAT Chemistry, GRE, and MCAT.
Successfully working with local students at Columbia, NYU, Hunter, and other CUNY schools over the past five years, I have developed a hands-on approach to tutoring. My sessions are run like workshops structured to assist students as they work through complicated math and science material. Pulling from past exams and lecture notes, I create a lesson plan for each session customized to the student's needs and academic goals.
Furthermore, by catering to the student's predisposition, my sessions provide a service unavailable at most colleges and high schools. When taught the proper organizing, planning, and time-management techniques, students usually overcome chronic anxiety, apathy, and underachievement. It's not uncommon for them to experience a marked grade improvement after just a few sessions.
Over ten years, I've tutored scores of adult and high school students, volunteered as an IRC tutor, and taught ESL in Tokyo. From these varied experiences, I've learned the winning formula for great tutoring: patience, understanding, creativity, organization, and a strong knowledge of the subject matter.
My services also include online sessions for standardized exams, specifically for subjects in which I received a perfect score or reached the 99th percentile: SAT II Math, SAT II Chemistry, and AP Calculus AB. Feel free to contact me for further details on the benefits of online tutoring.
