"Hey everyone! I am a current MIT senior studying mechanical engineering, and also a pitcher on the Varsity Baseball team. Throughout my time here I have enjoyed helping friends and peers understand difficult subjects, but I also know how it feels to ask others for help in areas I find tough. I enjoy tutoring because I love to help others find those breakthrough moments of understanding, and hopefully turn subjects into something they may actually enjoy!

I have been tutoring math and science for four years (three at a popular private tutoring company), and have helped students from 2nd grade all the way up through college. I love teaching students how to break apart tough problems into components they can more easily tackle. I also aspire to develop better study habits so that students can more effectively control their learning on their own.

I got a 35 on the math portion of the ACT, and an 800 on the SAT Math II Subject Test. I also received a 5 on the AP Calculus AB and BC portions, and a 5 on the AP Statistics test. On the ACT science portion, I received a 34, and got a 780 on the SAT Physics Subject Test. Through my mechanical engineering coursework I have to apply complex algebra and calculus skills to solve difficult physics problems. My experience applying these concepts to the real world of engineering can help students understand why what they are doing actually matters, which I have found to be important and helpful to a lot of people.

Please reach out if you are interested in scheduling a lesson or have any questions at all!" less...
