I graduated from New York University with an education degree specific to secondary mathematics. My work with students has been ongoing since 2008 and has involved junior high students from New Jersey, high schoolers from New York, and even young ESL students in Shanghai. My expertise ranges from Middle School Math to Calculus I. I appreciate and respect math because of the precision, creativity, and attention to detail that it demands (and hopefully you will, too!). Geometry and Algebra are arguably the most strategy-oriented fields, and thus they are my favorite to explore.
Tutoring should be engaging and dare I say enjoyable. Beyond the problem sets and test reviews, my task is to help you become a better and more creative thinker. The brain is a lot like a muscle; we should work it out together while having an appropriate amount of fun along the way. Despite what you may have heard, math is not this impossible and terrible thing cooked up to make you miserable. I think I can convince you of that.
When I'm not working, I bike and do yoga. Otherwise I'm reading, writing limericks or maybe re-watching Breaking Bad.
