Hello! I have five years of experience tutoring children of all academic levels from Pre-K through Graduate School and formerly served as the director of a tutoring center, a position that I left in 2014 to return to the teaching that I love. I hold BA degrees in both Physics and Philosophy from Grinnell College, completed my graduate coursework in the Philosophy of Religion at McMaster University, have authored solutions manuals for Differential Equations textbooks, edited published academi...

As the former director of a tutoring center, I have developed and maintained dozens of study-skills-focused programs for students of all ages, from kindergarten through college. Each student faces unique challenges within the realm of study skills, and I use a thorough survey and interview to determine how best to achieve the goals of each individual student and family.
I hold a degree in Physics from Grinnell College and served as the lead author for two editions of a Differential Equations solutions manual. I achieved a 100% (unweighted) average in my college DiffEq course as well, and look forward to discussing the wonderful world of eigenvalues and boundary conditions.
As the former director of a tutoring center, I have had the privilege of helping dozens of students with the college application process, including the application itself, the college search, essays, interview coaching, and I've even been known to write a letter of recommendation when adequately impressed. My former students have attended universities including Stanford, Claremont McKenna, Berkeley, and USC.
