Thank you for visiting my tutor profile! I attended college the University of Chicago and graduated with a B.A. in History in 2009. A few years later, I attended Yale University, earning an M.B.A. in 2015. I am now enrolled at Princeton University, working toward a Masters in Public Policy with an expected graduation in Spring 2019. While at Yale, I taught multiple discussion sections of undergraduate students in European History, but Ive also tutored on an individual basis in subjects ranging from U.S. History to Algebra II to GMAT Quant. Personally, my favorite subject is GMAT Quant because it allows me to solve problems from many different angles. I approach tutoring the same wayIve found that everyone has a different learning style and often approaches tests in different ways as well. Because of this, I like to tailor my tutoring style around a students needs and ultimately, enabling everyone to improve their test scores by harnessing their OWN strengths, rather than someone elses. Outside of academia, I love working on a local vegetable farm near my house. If Im not tutoring on a weekend, odds are excellent that Im outside picking corn or tomatoes. If not there, Im probably at a used bookstore, looking for good deals on dusty paperbacks. So much the better if the bookstore sells coffee...I admit, I'm a sucker for a good pumpkin spice latte.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My biggest concern, other than your score improvement, is availability--I want your performance to improve, and I will make myself as available as possible in order to accommodate your needs.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A typical first session would include a discussion of your thoughts on the GMAT: including when you plan on taking it, what your particular concerns are (in terms of test material), and most importantly, a discussion on how you learn best. I want to make sure you are being taught in a way that helps you learn as much as possible. We will then go into the test content itself--enabling us to determine what YOU want to focus on most.
