I am providing focus, attention, and results!
I am committed to providing the best customized assistance to students who are not getting everything that they need inside the classroom. I prefer a one-on-one approach, so that I can adapt my teaching style to specific student needs. My philosophy in tutoring math and science is to emphasize specific strategies that simplify complex problems. For English and literature subjects, I work with students on developing a logical essay structure format, vocabulary, and analytical skills. My intent is to teach skills that last a lifetime!
I graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in Environmental Engineering. Currently, I am tutoring part time while I prepare for graduate study at UC Berkeley, where I have been accepted to their number one-ranked civil and environmental engineering program. I enjoy getting to know my students and strive to make my sessions both fun and challenging. I have the knowledge and capability to teach winning strategies for the SAT and to tutor K-12 students at any level; however, my ability to get students to engage with the material helps them achieve the success that they dream of. I have worked with students of diverse backgrounds and learning abilities, with specific experience helping students with ADD/ADHD. I am patient, easy to work with, professional, and fully invested in helping my students succeed.
I received professional SAT I verbal, math, and writing training while working with Eureka Review, a renowned Los Angeles-based SAT tutoring company. I tutored students one-on-one in their homes while engaging in a strategy-specific review of SAT math and verbal skills. Students (and parents) were consistently pleased with their level of improvement on tests. Additionally, I worked several years as a sought-after private tutor in my hometown, assisting K-12 students with homework and learning skills in all subjects. I maintained contact with parents to provide progress updates and recommendations for additional study.
