I've been tutoring in New York City for about five years. During that time, I exploited the knowledge I'd acquired as a high school student and undergraduate, but I also broadened my repertoire to cover new topics. I've since tutored most high school, college, and graduate school entrance exams. I've worked with students of all ages on grade-level studies in math, science, the humanities and foreign languages. Students at top high schools like Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech are especially engaging to work with due to the challenging nature of the material and the lively mind of the student.
In addition to my own tutoring practice, I've also been director of a non-profit tutoring center. Under my administration we tracked students' scores and attained the highest average grade increase in the program's history. By guiding other tutors and consulting students for feedback on their experience, I got a very keen sense of what works and what doesn't.
In tutoring, I focus on results, but not to exclusion. I want to provide the student with a meaningful experience. That is to say, I aim to cultivate an appreciation for math, science, and/or the humanities that will last into college and their career.
Unwilling to compromise my love for language or my affinity for math and problem solving, I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Computational Linguistics, the interface between computer science and human language. Fluent in Spanish and German, I also study second language acquisition in my course and lab work. My hobbies include biking, camping, woodworking, travel, puzzles, writing, and lots of reading. I'm always excited to get to know new students.
