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.

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]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

I have a degree in English Literature from Stanford University. I've worked professionally as a writer for many years--in a few different fields--and I firmly believe that strong, confident writing is a skill that everybody needs, not just those writing professionally. I've taught writing and composition at the college level, and I've tutored young writers. For me, the payoff of working with a student comes when the person finds his or her own writing voice. 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, [more]

But more importantly, in my former role as a senior advisement teacher, I have deep professional experience supporting my students' college application process-- workshopping dozens' of students essays, helping them to find their unique voice that will make admissions off [more]
