College and High School Physics and Math

Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a teacher's assistant in English, German and Astronomy, a grader in Calculus and a tutor in Physics for scientists and engineers. I have continued to... [more]

I work with students one-on-one to improve their analytical skills in test taking and coursework, including AP classes and SAT prep. I also bring these skills to students who are in elementary and middle school,... [more]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

I have a degree in English Literature from Stanford University and an advanced degree from U.C. Berkeley. I've taught writing and composition at the college level, and I've tutored young writers. I've tutored on and off throughout my life, beginning in college, and I always seem to come back to it. I've tutored calculus, writing, elementary reading, middle school math, and French. When I was a 6th-grade teacher, I got a lot out of working with students one on one because I was able to tailor my instruction directly to the student's need. I'm now turning my focus to algebra readiness and to [more]
