"Natural sciences (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) are my favorite subjects, but I also enjoy Math, History, and Writing. I would be delighted to tutor students in any subject, and I am happy to help with standardized test prep, study habits and time management, college applications, and much more.

"Having taught in a high school classroom, and I have a lot of experience with seeing where students tend to struggle and trying to preempt that struggle by explaining the "why" instead of just the "how." Working with students one on one, I can spend more time helping to break down complicated problems to see how with the right tools anyone can work through the steps to find the solution. Whether it is for homework help, filling the gaps in your knowledge, or trying to get a jump on your SAT scores, I can help you form a strategy that will help you improve, but will more importantly help boost your confidence in that subject. I ...

"This method ensures complete understanding of material before moving on to the next point. I also check in frequently with the student to make sure that my approach to tutoring is compatible with the students' learning methods. If it isn't, I try something different. The most important aspect of learning is developing a solid foundation on which to build. In my free time I love to rock climb, read (mostly fiction), go camping, cook, and listen to music.."
