" My credentials: I graduated in the top 5 of my high school class and took numerous AP classes as well as the SAT, ACT, and SATII.

"I can proudly say I've taught math and hard science to all types, from poets to future engineers. I focus on teaching my students to always think for themselves and to come up with their own solutions rather than relying on rote memorization. My goal is that come test time, even if they are initially stumped, the intuition that students have worked so hard to build up will push them in the right direction. In my free time, I devour books, go on cooking adventures, and explore Chicago with my friends.."
