I've been consistently surprised by how much I enjoy tutoring my favorite subjects and I'd love to work with enthusiastic and curious students.

In the past, I've tutored introductory computer science, been a study group leader for an intermediate level calculus course, a TA for introductory geology, a freelance tutor through Wyzant, and a private tutor with a company in Cambridge, MA.

I think most students learn best when they have the chance to freely ask questions about the material in a conversational context, getting fast and thorough feedback on their work, which is not feasible in the classroom. As a tutor, I do my best to provide that conversation and lead students to their own conclusions and syntheses of concepts, showing them how much they already know and connecting the necessary knowledge." less...
