I am an experienced tutor and teacher with a Bachelors degree in Physics and a concentration in Earth Science. I am currently working towards a Masters Degree in Physical Science in a Geology and Astronomy program. I have taken formal education courses.
I have experience tutoring and teaching Math, Science, and Computers at various levels up through professional. I have also taught and tutored in written, spoken, and signed languages including English, ASL, Japanese, and Hebrew. I've done test-preparation tutoring for the GMAT, GRE, GED, ASVAB, SAT, FE, MCAT, AP, and NYS Regents Exams.
I am fluent in English and can communicate to various degrees of fluency in Japanese, Hebrew, and American Sign Language. I have taught and tutored academic subjects in each of these languages as well. I also have experience working with Deaf and hard-of-hearing students in ASL, Signed English, and SimCom environments.
Additionally, I have worked with adult learners, returning students, English language learners, and students with special needs. I have taken formal coursework in education and understand that we all have different learning styles and that there is no one single approach that will work for everyone. As such, I am flexible and adaptable as a tutor. I look forward to working with you and your individual educational needs!
*** Lesson Details ***
I do not travel more than 1.25 hours to meet a student.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have many reference books and text books, which I will use for our lessons or as a source of practice problems. I will provide a TI-89 or TI-84 or TI-86 calculator for advanced math and science lessons and a regular scientific calculator and basic calculator for other math and science students. I also have a large collection of manipulative tools for math and experiment supplies for science.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I take public transit, so I will be limited in what materials I can bring if we meet at your location.
*** Specialties ***
Math, Science, Computing, English Grammar and Writing, Test Preparation
Accompaniment, Arrangement and Composition, Math, Music Theory, Piano
Being a current student at Temple University studying jazz performance, I can provide students with an inside perspective of the Philadelphia jazz scene as I gig in the city fairly frequently. Lessons will be fun and informative, working on either jazz and/or basic piano proficiency (whichever is applicable). I've studied with fantastic pianists Tom Lawton and Bruce Barth in my time at Temple and can only hope to pass on the knowledge to others!
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very flexible depending on what you want to learn! I can teach basic piano for beginners. I can also dive into specifics of jazz music for more advanced students, or even jazz arranging and composition!

Teaching and tutoring has been my calling from early in life. It started with tutoring my friends, up to when I was hired through my high school Calculus class to tutor 10th grade Geometry students.
Since then, I've taught GRE, ACT and SAT prep and I've been a classroom mathematics teacher (from 7th grade to 12th grade) for almost a decade.
I have two specialties that make me fairly unique in the domain of Mathematics and Test Prep teaching and tutoring: First, I help students to understand the topic on a much deeper and more interesting level, by connecting it to related topics and skills, providing historical background, and elaborating on how it's been used and how it's currently used. This makes the material much more interesting, and, hence, much more likely to be recalled it in the future, than when it is taught the standard way.
Secondly, I am well aware of the role test-anxiety and self-doubt plays in the lack of success of some students, so I put a lot of emphasis on the emotional and psychological component of learning and test-taking. With a bachelor's degree in Psychology, I have tools to apply that help students to overcome the debilitating affects of test anxiety, self-doubt, and fear of failure.
Beyond this, I am very personable and can connect with most any student that I teach. I love to help students to learn, and that is readily evident to my students. Some students are intimidated by teachers or tutors who don't know how to connect with the students on a personal level, or how to break things down in a way that makes sense to the student, but that's where I truly excel. Instead of simply repeating myself and wondering why a students doesn't understand a challenging concept, I work to grasp where the breakdown occurs, and then build up from what they do already understand. Through this, I have had unparalleled success throughout my teaching experience, whether it is Math specifically, or Test Prep more generally.
Working with me will not only provide you nearly immediate success, but the effects will carry over well into the future. My teaching is a lifetime investment.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to overcome your challenges to reach your greatest potential.

I am an aspiring math teacher currently earning my masters degree in secondary education from Wilmington University. I have passed the Praxis series exams and earned the ETS' recognition of excellence. I come from an eclectic background; in college I studied aviation (where I learned to fly airplanes), music (especially Caribbean), and philosophy. I am still an amateur performing musician, but I am truly an academician at heart.
The most important thing to me when teaching is sharing my excited interest in the material with my students in a contagious way. I don't have to fake having fun; math, writing, grammar, and philosophy genuinely are fun for me, and I will work hard to help my students have fun as well.
Tutoring works better the more self-directed the pupil is. Learning requires more than understanding; it requires practice. I can help students to understand the material, and I can show them what and how to practice, but nothing will replace their need to work hard.
