I started tutoring in college in 2012. The opportunity to impart to my students some of the hard work I had put into learning was very rewarding. I did some graduate-school work at Boston University, which involved being a teaching assistant for a year. Since then, I have helped many high school and college students in New York City gain admission to college and grad school. I would describe my tutoring method as adaptive: students' learning styles vary, and the same strategy rarely works for everybody, so I try to tailor my work to the specific student's needs and goals. That said, I always make sure that the student is actively involved in their learning rather than blindly following my instructions. Outside of academia, I spend a lot of my time reading fiction, practicing yoga and meditation, playing board games, and appreciating art in all of its forms.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I would describe my tutoring method as adaptive: students' learning styles vary and the same strategy rarely works for all students, so I try to tailor my work to the specific student's needs and goals. That said, I always make sure to involve the student in their learning by guiding them towards the answers rather than spoon-feeding. I rarely spend much of a tutoring session lecturing.
