I'm a former university instructor and have been tutoring almost a decade. I graduated in 2005 from the Fulton School of Engineering at Arizona State University. I then graduated Summa Cum Laude from the California State University at Los Angeles with a Master's in Rhetoric and Media. I am also a lifelong student and coach of competitive forensics at all levels (speech and debate). I am full service, as my training has given me equal skill and comfort with both quantitative and qualitative studies. I specialize in tutoring Mathematics from Algebra I to AP Calculus, general Chemistry, and English (literary analysis and language arts). I am also a part-time debate coach. Originally I was pursuing a career in college instruction, but the enthusiasm of high school students and their parents has proven a more rewarding environment. Pre-college students learn faster and with greater purpose and are more exciting to help and foster. My students over the years have matriculated to Penn, Harvard, Princeton, U Chicago, Stanford, Carnegie-Mellon, Yale, Swarthmore, NYU, Columbia, Brown, Georgetown, George Washington, Berkeley, Juilliard, and have received scholarships to dozens more fine institutions. Sending clear-sighted and honest young people on their way is one of the greatest sources of pride in my life.
