With a decade of experience as a private tutor, alongside impeccable educational credentials and numerous commendations & certifications, I am a consummate master of Mathematics, teaching all levels, from elementary through college curricula.

I like being a positive influence in a student’s life and enjoy using my knowledge to help them succeed in school. I have been academically savvy throughout my life. I was a consistent honors student in high school and college, while consistently active in extracurricular activities. I was previously trained at several tutoring organizations as a math and test prep tutor, and also taught students in the North NJ and NYC areas. SAT students I tutored saw an average increase of 150-270 points, while a majority of students earning D’s have excelled to A’s and B’s. EDUCATION: I have excelled in academics since my teenage years. In high school, I attended a prestigious high school in New Jersey, graduating summa cum laude in the top 1% of my class, as a National Merit Scholar. During my four years, I made the high honor roll 16 consecutive times. In addition, I took no fewer than three Advance Placement courses each year, and scored a 5 in each AP exam, with the exception of two, obtaining a 4. I was also active as a member of the Academic Quiz Bowl Team and President of the Peer Leadership Club and the Honor Society. At university, I earned a perfect 4.0 GPA, and was awarded the title of “assistant marshal.” As a member of the honors program, I made the dean’s list each and every semester.
