Math Teacher|Michigan + Northwestern Law|Perfect Score Math ACT + SAT

I love math. I truly do. Since as long as I can remember, I've always found it fascinating, interesting, and highly rewarding. But what I love even more than ripping through a problem set is sharing my passion for math with ambitious students. I've been teaching math to other students ever since I was in middle school. Throughout my academic and professional life, I have continuously set time aside to help kids understand all sorts of math concepts. Why? Because math is a subject mat... [more]


Algebra 1

I took Algebra 1 in the seventh grade and was the top performing student in my class (even among 8th graders and 9th graders). I went on to help a number of students with the subject informally during my middle school years, and eventually began tutoring students in the subject both on a pro-bono and professional basis. I love Algebra, and thoroughly enjoy teaching students its mechanics as I consider it to be a key foundational subject in the study of mathematics. I pride myself on my ability to inject my enthusiasm and love for Algebra into each lesson.


Algebra 2

I received an "A" in algebra 2 when I took it as a high school freshman. I routinely scored higher than my fellow classmates, even those who were senior to me. I have a deep understanding of the subject matter, and have taught dozens of kids on both a pro-bono and private basis.


Biology


Calculus

I received an A in calculus as well as a 5 on the advanced placement test. In college, I took both calculus 3 and 4. I am well versed in the concepts of both derivatives and integrals, and thoroughly enjoying explaining these matters to young students. I often find that people are highly intimidated by calculus. More often than not, however, folks are pleasantly surprised by the logic and clarity of the subject matter.


Geometry

I aced geometry in 8th grade and have been a huge fan of the subject ever since. For my students that don't instinctually mesh with the subject, I have developed a carefully tailored process based methodology to learn and apply the requisite theorems and principles. Geometry is a very important subject, especially since a great deal of SAT and ACT questions are rooted in geometric principles.


Prealgebra

I took pre algebra in sixth grade and received an A+. Since that time, I have helped numerous students understand the subject matter on both a pro-bono and professional basis. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this subject, and fully recognize its importance as a foundational core for algebra, geometry, precalculus, and beyond.


Precalculus

Precalculus is the subject matter that I have taught the most. It is an area where many students initially struggle, but with the right tutelage, eventually thrive. I have developed a number of carefully tailored techniques to get students zipping through the most challenging of topics, such as logarithmic equations, trigonometric functions, probabilities, and sequences. I personally received an "A" in the subject matter during my sophomore year in high school.


Trigonometry

I completed trigonometry as part of my precalculus curriculum during my sophomore year. I received an "A" as my overall grade, and have loved the subject matter ever since. I mold my instruction of the subject around the unit circle, which provides an excellent base for understanding the entire breadth of trigonometric functions and their applications.


Writing

I am a professional writer who has authored a book entitled about how to maximize profits from your AirBnB listing. Additionally, I have been published multiple times on Above The Law as well as Business Insider. I have substantial writing expertise from my educational pursuits as well as my four year career in patent litigation. I love to write, and I relish any opportunity to help students perfect their writing abilities. When instructing students, I employ the same methodology that is used by top law firms across the country to train their associates.


SAT Math

I personally scored an 800 on the NEW SAT math section (May of 2016), and have a full and complete understanding of all the questions types. I have helped dozens of students prepare for the SAT, both on a private basis as well as with Kaplan. My test prep curriculum centers around three basic principles: (1) diligent and timed practice, (2) constant review of problems answered incorrectly, and (3) thorough understanding of all tested concepts. I love helping kids master the SAT, and truly enjoy sharing my expertise. Additionally, I have a top rated video course for the SAT Math section.


LSAT

I worked as both an LSAT classroom teacher and a private tutor for Kaplan before attending law school. Since then, I have tutored students for the LSAT on a private basis. I love the LSAT, and especially enjoy solving the logic game and logical reasoning problems. I have a thorough understanding of the material, and compliment that with my experience and expertise gained as a big law firm litigator.


GED

I graduated at the top of my class in high school, and have a thorough knowledge of all core high school subject areas. I love helping students gear up for the GED as it enables them for high level accomplishments down the line.


SAT Reading

I have helped prepare students for the SAT both as a tutor for Kaplan as well as on a private basis. My strategy centers around three core principles: (1) familiarization with the SAT format and its various question types, (2) a solid understanding of the material, and (3) routine practice. I work closely with all of my students to make sure that they feel totally comfortable with the exam.


SAT Writing


GMAT


ACT Math

I have a complete understanding of every difficulty type of ACT math question available, and have successfully tutored a number of students for the ACT. My teaching strategy centers around (1) providing a thorough understanding of the tested concepts, (2) encouraging lengthy and regular practice, and (3) offering detailed explanations for any missed or confusing questions.


ISEE

I have been coordinating and delivering a private ISEE class in concert with a private tutoring company for the last two years. My focus has been on the middle level ISEE exam, especially for the Math Achievement and Quantitative Reasoning subjects. I help kids with all aspects of the exam, but mathematics is my special area of expertise.
