"I've been tutoring since my sophomore at Tufts University, where I volunteered with the Leonard Carmichael Society. Since then, I've been a computer science teaching assistant, SAT/college essay tutor and extracurricular arts instructor in a few different settings, working with students from elementary to college age, and now primarily high school students.

In my time tutoring, I've enjoyed helping students gain confidence in their academic abilities, and be able to address particular problem areas holding them back from achieving their academic goals. I fundamentally believe math and computer science are for everyone, that is, with support and at the right pace any student can attain functional fluency in them. And once they do, the inherent beauty of both subjects and their structure becomes apparent.

I recently scored a 167 on the GRE Quantitative section, and I've used the math I've learned, Algebra 1 though Linear Algebra, extensively in my college coursework and my research projects.

I graduated magna cum laude with a major in Geological Sciences, currently figuring out graduate school in the geosciences.

C++ is the main language I've worked in, both as an instructor and in my scientific modeling/computationally intensive projects, and in Python I've done a lot of syntax related tutoring and a fair number of data science projects.

If you'd possibly like to work with me, feel free to reach out, I'm mostly free in the afternoons/evenings and I look forward to getting started with some new students this coming year." less...
