Tutoring isn't just about knowing the subject matter--it's also about attitude! I firmly believe that the most important part of tutoring is recognizing that each student has individual needs, and with that, an individual approach to understanding difficult subject material. I am committed to discovering what method works best for you, and hope to help you succeed in overcoming whatever difficulties you may have.

As for my background, I have been tutoring since high school. I have extensive experience tutoring in math, both as a private tutor and with a company. My BA (University of Arizona) and M. Phil. (Trinity College Dublin) degrees are respectively in Creative Writing and in English, and as such, I have a strong background in those subjects as well, which are my favorite to tutor--I enjoy exploring the precision of language to clearly communicate ideas. I offer tutoring at all levels in English, and up to algebra in math, as well as SAT and PSAT tutoring.

Outside of school, I hope to become a professional writer some day. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, traveling, and e-sports.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

It's not just the student that needs patience and dedication--a tutor or teacher needs it just as much. If we can't figure out something one way, then we'll try looking at other ways.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a first session, I would ask you what your goals are, and what background you have with the material in question. I would also begin to figure out your learning style--whether you prefer a "hands-on" approach, or a more detailed explanation.
