I have been tutoring since 2005, starting with Ivy West in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have worked with hundreds of students throughout the US and the world, with most of my experience in mathematics and test preparation. I have helped students earn perfect scores on all sections of the SAT and ACT tests. I have coached other students to bring their math or science scores up from D's to A's. I have several different ways to explain most concepts in math, and will try different approaches until something clicks. I teach math holistically, which engages students' curiosity, leading them to ask questions about the math concepts we are learning, instead of relying on rote memorization of increasingly complex formulas.
I founded Academy Tutors in 2014 with the mission to make private tutoring accessible to all students. Our first five years focused on online curriculum and instruction, which has the potential to improve outcomes for a wide range of students. But with the onset of the COVID pandemic, our approach has changed. Many students need direct, in-person instruction to compensate for the hundreds of hours of lost seat-time. We are now focused on helping students through whichever modality suits their situation best.
