As a tutor, I aim to make learning exciting and relevant to children. One of the greatest challenges facing young students is that information is presented to them in a stale, inaccessible way. Specifically in the context of standardized testing, they are asked to memorize and regurgitate information without truly grasping its content; such a style makes it impossible for students to approach unfamiliar problems and think critically, and often contributes to their discouragement and their writing off of entire subjects like math and science. I attempt to give students the ability to think critically, relish the problem solving process, and come to solutions on their own. To this end, I attempt to speak clearly and concisely, to make high-level concepts accessible to students of all ability levels, and to create strong personal relationships with my students. I am currently accepting students in all math subjects through the high school level, standardized test preparation (SAT, GRE, SSAT, PSAT), computer science, writing, study skills and organizational skills.

I recently graduated from Vassar College in New York where I majored in computer science with minors in math and art history. I strongly believe in holistic approaches to education, and as a computer science at a liberal arts college, I had invaluable experience studying both math and science while continuing to develop my critical writing, reading and research abilities. At Vassar, I was deeply involved in the computer science department as a tutor and lab coach for several years and as the department-wide academic intern. In these roles, I worked with students of all levels in the department to complete their homework and lab assignments and to study for tests, and held open review sessions and recitation classes for our 100 and 200 level courses. Additionally, I have worked as a middle school tutor and test prep coach and feel very comfortable working with students of all ages and skill levels.
