I am an energetic and engaged calculus and physics tutor with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Stony Brook University. I've been helping students excel since 2014 and I tutor grades 11-College.

My tutoring method involves training my students to develop productive learning behaviors outside of the tutoring session and classrooms. Although learning new information and strengthening understanding may take place in a tutoring session, it is really what the student does after the session that creates true retention. I teach my students to appreciate Calculus, Physics, and other engineering related courses by showing them their applications in the real world and connecting them to information they already know. All of this while simultaneously mentoring them to develop positive study and learning habits that keep them on track and produce the results they want. My goal is to provide true value with each lesson.

One of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences I have had in my tutoring career was with a mechanical engineering undergrad in the fall of 2021 who asked me to tutor her so that she could develop the skill she needed to pass her Mechanical Vibrations and Heat and Mass Transfer classes. This was especially a daunting task since she admitted to me that she was not necessarily proficient in calculus and physics. We decided to come up with a step by step process to help her reach her goal. We developed a schedule of tutoring sessions as well as times during the week for self study. We both knew that it would be a lot of work, but she was determined to do what she needed to do to improve her performance. Her first exam was not as good as she expected it to be, but she didn't give up and continued to make all of her sessions on time and always asked for help when she needed it. By the end of her semester, I was completely elated to find out that she passed both of her classes. These were classes that she had failed in the past (Mechanical Vibrations she had failed twice!). She went on to continue our tutoring sessions and eventually graduate and complete her engineering degree. It was a really exciting journey and experience for me as a tutor to have played a role in her achieving this goal for herself.
