"Salutations! I'm a self-confessed math geek and a serious fan of English literature--the whole panalopy of it, stretching from Shakespeare to Dostoyevsky; from Newton and Leibniz to Turing and Nash. All of it. There's so much to explore, so many wonderful and vivid ideas out there, that tutoring and teaching becomes such an incredible pursuit.

I was homeschooled through highschool, and then threw myself into culinary school, learning the art and science of food..."

After graduating, I became a full time SAT Instructor for The Princeton Review Korea where I taught large classes of 20 students in four-hour blocks, up to three times a day in SAT Reading, Writing, Math, and SAT II US History.
