A strong foundational approach is essential as preparation for the standardized testing that your child will face as they look forward to the college application process. My strong multi-disciplinary background and experience with the college application process ... [more]


Algebra 1

I use Algebra every day while completing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. I have a deep understanding of the material that allows me to explain the same topic in many different ways to find the approach that best fits my student. I have over a decade of experience tutoring Algebra. I believe that establishing a strong fundamental knowledge of Algebra is essential for success in higher level math classes.


Algebra 2

I use Algebra 2 every day while completing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. Since I have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics and am finishing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering, I have a deep understanding of the material that allows me to explain the same topic in many different ways to find the approach that best fits my student. I have over a decade of experience tutoring Algebra 2. I believe that having a strong foundation in Algebra 2 is fundamental to success in more advanced math classes.

Biology

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry and am finishing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering, so I have a deep understanding of Biology that allows me to explain the same topic in many different ways to find the approach that best fits my student. I have over a decade of experience tutoring Biology at the high school and college levels and have completed a comprehensive set of course work in the area over the course of my studies. My diverse, strong background in the field allows me to place Biology concepts in a context that helps students understand and remember the material.


Calculus

I use Calculus every day while completing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering. Since I have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics and am finishing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering, I have a deep understanding of the material that allows me to explain the same topic in many different ways to find the approach that best fits my student. I have over a decade of experience tutoring Calculus, having tutored it ever since I took AP BC Calculus while I was a junior in high school. While it may seem intimidating at first, my experience allows me to break Calculus down into manageable pieces that my students can understand and employ in solving Calculus problems.


Chemistry

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and laboratory/work experience in the field, so I have a deep understanding of the material that allows me to explain the same topic in many different ways to find the approach that best fits my student. I have over a decade of experience tutoring Chemistry at the high school and college levels. While it may seem intimidating at first, my experience allows me to break Chemistry down into manageable pieces and describe Chemistry concepts in terms of real world examples that my students can relate to and understand.
