"My experiences have been uniformly positive and I've found that any student, no matter their previous experience or abilities, is eager to learn and to do well. I believe that it is the role of the teacher to harness these natural energies and put them to good use by making the material more relatable to the student and their own interests. This will only be accomplished if the teacher is both patient and understanding. Besides my interest in math and science my other interests include Latin, French, computer programming, basketball, and Go.." ...

"I am currently working as a Research Assistant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

" Because there's only one student to help, there's no excuse not to make the lessons engaging and personalized to their interests. For example, if you have a student who loves sports but struggles with math, I have a slew of analogies that can help. To me, tutoring is a delicate balance between a hands-on and hands-off approach. Any tutor worth his salt will know not just how to guide students through concepts, but also when to let the student attempt problems without help. As the student learns a concept, the first approach is used more often; once he or she has mastered a subject, the second becomes more important. I specialize in test prep ...

"I like to teach with real-world examples, mnemonic devices, and visual aids; making connections and drawing one's own conclusions are lasting tools in learning that far surpass what memorization and rote work can achieve.
