"I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Bio-mechanical Engineering and grew up in southern California. I have tutored dozens of students of all ages in many academic areas, including SAT and SAT II prep, over the past 10 years. Nearly all of the students I have worked with have seen material gains in their academic/test taking abilities and many have been accepted to top-tier colleges of their choice. My approach to teaching is collaborative, hands-on, and dynamic. I encourage my students to ask plenty of questions and to challenge my assumptions and ideas." ...

" When I am not busy with school or leisure, I will be helping you or your child grasp a difficult subject or improve a test score. I encourage my students to talk me through their thought process when tackling a problem, so that I can pinpoint exactly what is preventing them from arriving at the right solution. While getting the right answer is important in life, and especially on tests, my time at MIT and NYU Poly has taught me that fostering the analytical thinking skills required to arrive at the answer yourself are much more valuable life skills. On account of my background in engineering and the life sciences, my areas of expertise run the ...

"My first of such experiences was as a music teacher, teaching kids between the ages of 10 and 15 the basics of violin and guitar. All of my lessons at this point were one-on-one, and I quickly realized that I favored this teaching style because it really allows a customization of the curriculum to suit each individual child's needs. As a math and english peer tutor in high school, I found that such a one-on-one style is also ideal for more academic subjects, for the same facility of curriculum customization. Additionally, I enjoy having a strong personal connection with my students, something facilitated by one-on-one tutoring sessions." ...
