I graduated from Cornell University in May 2011 with a B.A. in Mathematics. I am currently a Mathematics Ph.D. student at the City University of New York Graduate Center. I have been teaching and tutoring since middle school, where I started helping my friends with their homework. I tutored privately throughout high school, teaching subjects such as algebra, geometry, calculus, biology, and physics. At Cornell, I was a tutor in the Math Support Center, a walk-in tutoring service for all areas of math. In addition, I was a calculus course assistant, running problem-solving sessions. During the summer of 2011 I taught a five-week SAT Math prep course to rising high school juniors.

I usually mold my teaching methods to fit the needs of my students. I believe the key to tutoring is to help the student have an "Aha!" moment, when a previously misunderstood concept suddenly makes sense. Such moments give students a real sense of confidence in themselves and agency in their learning, as their hard work has paid off. Because of this, when teaching I aim to get my students to come to conclusions themselves, instead of giving them the answers.

My main academic interest is mathematics, specifically algebra and algebraic geometry. I also have a passion for learning about physics and history (mainly European history). In my spare time I like reading, listening to music, jogging, and exploring New York City.
