Math, Chemistry, Physics, SAT Prep? I can help!

I am an experienced tutor in math, chemistry, and physics currently working for the Newton Public Schools. I am currently licensed to teach mathematics at the high school and middle school levels, and expect to obtain my certification to teach chemistry later this year. In addition to my experience teaching at the high school level, I also have prior experience teaching at the college level - first as a TA in graduate school in Colorado and later as a TA at Harvard. In both cases I taught cla... [more]


Algebra 1

Algebra is like second nature to me. I have a thorough understanding of all the fundamental concepts, and I am confident that I can explain the subject in such a way that you too will soon find it an easy subject to master!

Calculus

Calculus is a highly practical branch of mathematics with many applications in the natural sciences, economics, and engineering. The good news is that it's not as difficult as it may seem - at least not basic single-variable calculus. I can help you overcome any obstacles you may have with respect to differentiation, integration, and any of their numerous applications. I can also help with related problems of limits, infinite series, and numerical methods for solving basic calculus problems.

Geometry


Physics

I have a very strong background in physics and have successfully tutored several students in the subject as well, ranging from introductory high school physics up through AP Physics and first-year college physics, including both classical mechanics and electricity & magnetism.

SAT Math

I scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and routinely score 800 on the math section whenever I take the practice exams. Even if you aren't shooting for 800, the SAT math exam is definitely one where you can markedly improve your score with even just a limited amount of studying and practice. Fortunately, the SAT math exam covers a specific, well-defined set of topics, and tends to ask the same types of questions in the same way year after year. I will help you with the topics that you find the most difficult, and I have some basic strategies to offer that will help you effectively organize your preparation and maximize your test scores.

SAT Reading

The SAT reading exam tests your knowledge of vocabulary and reading comprehension. Although I'm not a perfect scorer on this exam, I did get a 710 when I took the exam years ago, and consistently score in the 750-780 range on the reading section whenever I take the practice exams nowadays. I have some basic strategies to offer that will help you effectively organize your preparation and maximize your test scores.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience tutoring children in elementary math and am certified to teach mathematics in Massachusetts grades 5-8. I also have experience tutoring children in basic reading, writing, spelling, and handwriting skills.


CFA

I successfully passed Level I of the CFA Exam in June, 2012 and passed Level II of the CFA Exam in June, 2013, each on the first try. Each CFA exam covers an incredible amount of material - I have some basic strategies to offer that will help organize your preparation and maximize your test scores.
