"My name is Olivia, and I graduated from UPenn (Ivy League school) two years ago with a double major in Mathematics and Economics, and a minor in Hispanic Studies. I was the valedictorian of my high school graduating class, scored 2370 on the SAT, and graduated college Summa Cum Laude. While at Penn, I was selected to go through a semester-long, rigorous training process to be a writing tutor. I also led math tutoring sessions and was a Biology teaching assistant in college. Overall, I've held over 500 tutoring sessions with students ranging from age 18 to 60+, so I am very experienced working with a variety of learning styles and people.

Currently I work as analyst at Citibank doing financial modeling, but I really missed working one-on-one with students. I love being able to help people gain a clearer understanding of a subject, and finally have that "light bulb" moment! My teaching style is example-oriented, with lots of positive encouragement. I always have multiple ways to explain a concept, just in case one way isn't clicking. I'm friendly, personable, and passionate about helping people learn. I believe that every student has the potential to excel at any given subject - I've seen many students go from feeling lost and completely hopeless to feeling confident, capable, and knowledgeable. I'm ready to put in the work to figure out what learning style works best and how we can get you building momentum!

I've taken classes up to the graduate level at UPenn. All of my classes were proof-based, so I have a deep understanding of most concepts. I also majored in Economics, where I had more computational classes. My classes included the Honors Calculus series, Linear Algebra, Complex Analysis, Advanced Analysis, (with Topology), Econometrics, Formal Logic, and Abstract Algebra.

I'm so excited to work together! Please feel free to contact me anytime--I would love to set up sessions for either online or in-person. Let's get learning! :)" less...
