A New York native, I grew up in a small college town in the Hudson valley two blocks away from a State University of NY (SUNY). My father was a professor of math and my mother was an adjunct professor of math, so teaching and math are in my blood. I graduated with a degree in Economics from MIT. While pursuing my degree, I worked with students in area schools to develop their interest in STEM education. After my second year of college, I took time off to start a tutoring center in my hometown focused on math and SAT prep. An entrepreneur and educator, I have had the privilege of working in government, finance/banking, and, most recently, corporate and startup consulting. I also spent 8 years in India where I successfully started, grew, and sold a hospitality/hotel company.

I have tutored K-12 fundamentals, high school Algebra I & II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, college-level Calculus, and SAT prep.

I have worked with students from 8 years old to 22 years old. Mostly middle and high school students.

With the majority of my students, I found that they simply lacked confidence in their math abilities. Perhaps this was due to teachers, home life, or other reasons. Whatever the reason, they had lost interest in math. Little by little, focusing on items that they had trouble with their past experiences, I was able to make students more comfortable with their math abilities, bringing them to the level they needed to be. To me, the most gratifying experience was making them excited to do the math.

I remember one particular student. He was an 8th-grade student and his parents were at their wits end with his math grades. They were concerned that he was failing math. In our first meeting, the student was not talkative at all. His parents were committed, and so was I. We started 1-on-1 sessions the following week. Within 2-3 weeks, he became more expressive and began to smile as he was able to get more and more questions correct. He began seeing a significant improvement in his homework grades. Soon after that, there was a noticeable increase i n his test grades. At the end of his course, he and his parents came and thanked me. It was incredible to see the positive change in his demeanor. He was not afraid of math anymore. I have been lucky to have had similar student experiences. I am proud to say that several of my students that needed the most help went on to obtain graduate degrees in math-heavy fields such as science or engineering.

• I love beaches and the ocean.

• A lifelong vegetarian, I have been called a “pizzatarian” because I am on a journey to perfect homemade pizza crust and sauce.

• I also enjoy spending time with my family and my two-year old pomsky named Teddy.
