For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved learning new things and sharing this knowledge with others. Nothing beats the feeling of demystifying a difficult concept for someone and witnessing their “aha!” moment. Over the course of my academic career, I grew to really enjoy the STEM subjects, and I was always happy to take the time (often quite a bit!) to help my peers when they were having trouble with their homework or didn’t understand the way the teacher explained something. These impromptu sit-downs ultimately evolved into formal tutoring sessions, and over the years, I’ve served as a private tutor for a number of students in math and science.

I graduated from Cooper Union with a Bachelor of Engineering in electrical engineering in 2010. Since then, I’ve been working as a software engineer; this experience has fueled my enthusiasm for tutoring computer science. I’m also passionate about tutoring calculus and physics so that I can help assuage the extreme (and, in my opinion, undeserved) fear that students often have of these subjects. Despite their intimidating reputations, each of these subjects is built on a foundation of only a few simple (and largely intuitive) ideas—the difficulty comes when these concepts are combined and applied in creative ways. Accordingly, my tutoring style is to cut through the complexity by repeatedly breaking things down into smaller and simpler pieces until they are understood.
