About Me

I grew up in New Jersey and graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers University with a
B.A. in Mathematics and a minor in Philosophy. Subsequently, I earned my M.A. in
Mathematics Education from the University of Southern California as a teaching fellow
with Math for America. When I’m not tutoring, I enjoy playing the guitar and the piano,
traveling, hiking, and learning languages.

My Teaching Experience

I have taught mathematics, science, and test preparation at both the middle school and
high school levels for several years. I have also helped students improve their study
skills, time management, organization, and executive functioning. Over the years, I have
seen my students break through their personal barriers to improve their academic grades
and scores on tests such as the SAT, ACT, ISEE, and more.

My Teaching Style

I have a talent for explaining complex material in a clear and relatable way that helps to
build rapport with students. Additionally, I encourage students to focus on gaining a
thorough understanding of the subject matter, rather than relying on shortcuts and
memorization.
