I have a Bachelor's degree from Yale in the History of Science and a Master's degree from Johns Hopkins SAIS in International Relations and Economics. I have over ten years of tutoring experience, working with students anywhere on the spectrum from kindergarten to graduate school, with a particular focus on high school. I enjoy tutoring a range of subjects, but particularly Math, Science, Economics, and Foreign Languages. Whatever the subject, I am a proponent of the "Teach a man to fish..." approach: rather than just focusing on giving my students the answer, I enjoy helping them understand how to think about the concepts. Even if Trigonometry sounds dry, for example, I have seen how explaining it in terms of "pretend you want to hit the baseball farther than anyone else and you need to figure out what angle will get you there" can make a light bulb go on. All of my previous students have had different learning styles, personalities, and interests; one of my favorite things about tutoring is figuring out what makes them tick so I can come up with appropriate examples.

When I have time, I am a huge fan of traveling and skiing. I think traveling is a great way to both discover new places and reflect on where I'm from, and skiing speaks for itself whether in California, Japan, Austria, or Switzerland. Of course, I can't be on the road all the time, so for the 95% of the time that I'm at home I enjoy crossword puzzles, music, watching sports (especially the Lakers and the Packers), and finding cheap and tasty food all over the city.
