I am an internationally awarded science communicator with a decade of experience in 1-1 tutoring, classrooms, and lecture halls teaching math, SAT/ACT prep, and IB/AP math, physics, chemistry, and biology. I have a bachelor's degree from Coe College and I tutor grades 9-College.
I am passionate and innovative about the topics I learn. My sessions are full of anecdotes, metaphors, and custom-made animations – all of which I adapt to the strengths of my student. Sometimes you forget you're learning math and, all out the sudden, BOOM! Congratulations, you now find AP Calculus easy and got a 5 on the exam with 20 minutes extra time to take a nap if you so wish.
I measure your progress in different skills throughout our time together and quantify that data so that I know precisely what skills we need to target at any given time. This has taken my testing students from the 10th percentile to the 99th percentile.
Sometimes in life you have more responsibilities than studying – and this has been the case with many of my students. One of them absolutely hated math, but needed to graduate high school to get a better job. Despite working 3 jobs at the time, we found time to meet twice a week. Once we got her D- to an A, she decided to take the SAT, take AP calculus, AP physics, and AP English – all of which we worked to a perfect score. She went on to graduate from Yale and is now pursuing a PhD in pure mathematics in Harvard.
I've been a martial artist my whole life, practicing arts such as wing chun, tai chi, shotokan karate-do, jiu jitsu, muay thai, and MMA. I also play the flute, I love cooking, and learning languages!
