I've worked at The White House, on Wall Street, and run my own tech start-up for 3 years, and I will help you achieve your goals!
I overcame a significant learning disability to graduate high school at 16, publish original scientific research in major international journals, and went on to graduate from Oxford University, the London School of Economics, and Rice University. My original writing has been published in The Guardian and Le Monde, two of the largest newspapers in the United Kingdom and France, respectively.
I have 10+ years of experience teaching higher mathematics, computer science, and the SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, SAT II, IB, and AP exams (including SAT Math IIC, AP Calculus, AP Computer Science, AP Biology, AP U.S. and European History, AP Art History, and a wide variety of other fields).
I've made perfect or near perfect scores on every standardized test I teach, beginning from when I made perfect scores on SAT I Writing, Verbal, SAT II Math IIC when I was 15.
It is not at all uncommon for my students to achieve scores like these, increasing by 10 percentile points or more after only a few lessons. My approach is the opposite of "one-size-fits-all."
We will develop a customized syllabus together after your first diagnostic test, and I will be data-driven in pursuit of improving your score until we achieve your goals. Fully over 90% of the students I've taught have gained admission to their top choice schools, graduate school, or one of the most selective universities in the US.
Outside of this work, I have also been fortunate to start a tech company, intern for The White House Chief of Staff when President Obama was first elected, and work in medical research, where I've also been fortunate to publish peer-reviewed articles on predicting Diabetes-risk in young children.
Let me know how I can help you achieve your dreams, higher education-related or otherwise. I'm excited to work with you.
