I have been a math tutor for 17 years tutoring all levels of math from 4th grade through advanced Calculus as well as SAT and GRE prep. I have four years experience as a middle-school and high-school math teacher. I earned my BA in Math and Philosophy from Columbia University, and my MA in Philosophy from UCR. I am currently working towards my PhD in Philosophy at UCR.

My approach to teaching math is to combine clarity, thoroughness, and enthusiasm. I strive to explain concepts and techniques in clear and accessible ways, which I modify according to my student's learning style and level of knowledge. I aim to impart upon my students a thorough understanding of the material by reminding them of more basic concepts that are relevant to what they are learning by providing mnemonic devices to help them memorize formulas, by illustrating every concept with one or more examples, and by pointing out connections between different topics so they can come to grasp the deeper structure of mathematics. Finally, I try to convey my enthusiasm about math with a lively and encouraging tone so that my students can come to see that math is not just a dry and tedious subject but an interesting and powerful way of using one's mind.
