I am an aspiring physician with over 3 years of experience in helping high school and college students fulfill their academic potential. Over the years, I tutored over 100 students from 20 different states and 6 foreign countries. Each one of them learned and studied in a unique way, so I would always take the time to assess their strengths and weaknesses in order to provide them with the best learning experience. When students choose my services, they are guaranteed to have an extraordinary experience, regardless of whether they are an advanced student or a beginner.
My mission is to help my students reach their academic goals by expanding their capacity for learning and making the generalized process of education more personal. Learning is a skill that requires training, pacing, and a lot of practice. It stems from one's ability to process information by reading the assigned text, taking good notes, and carefully choosing exercises and problems to solidify one's understanding of concepts without taking up too much time. Though learning is a universal skill, it manifests differently from person to person. My goal is to help my students find their own way of learning and devise a study plan that will lead them to their goals.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Often, there is a lot of "fluff" in the problems that students face on their tests. With all of my students, I share a technique of identifying the most important parts of the question by focusing on keywords and what I call "buzzwords." Keywords usually signal the scope of the problem, while buzzwords signal a formula that is commonly applied. The goal is to not understand every single word of the problem, but rather to understand the parts of the problem that matter most!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know the student's academic background and, more importantly, personality. Education has always been fun and interesting for me because I was always able to link the classroom concepts to my own personal interests. That's exactly what I love doing for my students - linking their education to their personality. My experience shows that students learn better and are more driven to work harder if they consider education and school a part of who they are.
