I received my undergraduate degree in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. Also, I recently graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Applied Physics. I love teaching and helping students grasp concepts. I believe in moving beyond rote memorization to personal mastery and ownership of one's education. I am available to tutor in SAT Math Test prep, Algebra 1-4, Pre-Calulus, and Trigonometry.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I found it most rewarding to continuously remind my students that math and science mastery is obtainable as long as they were willing to persevere and struggle through difficult concepts. I look forward to each opportunity to empower my students through tutoring. I have also taught SAT courses, so I realize the importance of student engagement and participation when teaching complex subjects. I adapt my style and teaching to each student.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
My first priority is getting to know the student. Before jumping into the material, I'd like to find out how the student feels about the material and what they believe their issues in the subject area are.
