Retired Aerospace Engineer. Professional Tutor for Math and English.

As a Kumon Instructor for 11 years, I taught every aspect of Math and English from basic skills to college level work. During that time, I have taught hundreds of teens and young adults to understand that mastering these skills is vital, not only to getting into the college of their choice, but to being successful at the college level and beyond. Along the way, I have also taught these students to write excellent college applications and essays, and many of them have been accepted to top tier schools. [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

In addition to writing the letter that led to myself winning an academic scholarship two decades ago, I have coached more than a few students through the process of writing successful college application essays. Sometimes called a "personal statement"-- this document needs to show how the writer is a unique, special, and deserving applicant who is likely to make the most of her/his educational opportunity. The "judges" who read these essays may be looking over a hundred or more candidates' pieces, so YOUR words need to distinguish you from the crowd. Every sentence has to amplify the message [more]

Passionate About Helping Students Learn Math and Ace Tests

I have helped over 100 students find and get accepted to the college or graduate school of their choice. I have also created internship programs at top companies like McKinsey, Google, and LinkedIn. My approach is well rounded: establish a vision and mission, create a strategy to identify schools and programs that fit, and execute a plan using all components of the application (grades, tests, essays, and recommendations) to effectively tell the story that leads to acceptance into the targeted school or program. I have worked with Michigan State University and Stanford University as well to ref [more]

Effective Math Tutor (Northwestern U Engineering PhD)

Having recently gone through the college application process with my kids, I know how stressful it can be. You only have one chance to make a good impression on each college you apply to. My wife and I have spent hundreds of hours researching on the internet, attended seminars from admission officers from different colleges and visited the campuses of many of these top colleges. I am very familiar with the subtle difference between what these top colleges look for. I can consult on how to make the student stand out with the appropriate extracurricular activities and the unique personal stateme [more]
