"With an A average in all AP and honors classes and an overflowing list of extracurricular activities, it frustrated me that something like one test score could affect my college admissions. But like most challenges in my life, I viewed it as motivation. I took a course, got private math tutoring, took practice tests, and came up with essay prompts. Ultimately, I got a very strong score, ranking me in the 96th percentile."

"The reason why I enjoy tutoring so much is that I get to act as a catalyst in creating a smarter society where students will go on to solve the world's biggest problems in health, education, economy, etc. My tutoring experience started in high school with SAT prep for a group of 3-5 students that needed help (the students attended the same high school as me at the time). Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid." ...

"I was trained by an elite SAT tutoring company, but also specialize in math through Algebra.

I have additionally tutored biology, history, Spanish, college-level writing, and reading/writing skills with elementary school students. Along with ten years of babysitting experience, I formerly served as a counselor for an afterschool program that focused on providing educational support for low-income K-8 students.

"I attended private schools my whole life because I was awarded academic scholarships based off of academic performances. In high school, my average for the math regents was a 98.67. After that I received an academic scholarship to attend the University of Notre Dame where I really developed a passion for teaching and enlightening students in my free time, despite being a finance major. I decided that instead of teaching/tutoring, I should work for corporate America, and I worked at Goldman Sachs for 3 years."
