...I have a degree from UCLA in mechanical engineering; my math skills are what got me through it. I was always a top math student in high school and college, and I am able to patiently show students more than one way to solve most problems. I get along well with younger people and am able to connect in order to explain math, which I know many students do not like.

...Successful completion of timed, standardized tests requires knowing how to recognize and best solve a particular problem type. Each session we work to decompose and successfully solve a given problem in the most efficient way. As an experienced teacher with over 13 years of experience in middle school, I have explicitly taught study and organizational skills to my students.

...Whenever possible, I use real-world problems and applications so the concepts make sense. I have taught courses in Algebra, Statistics, Probability, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Functions, Linear Algebra, and Math Modeling. Along with teaching, I have been a judge for the COMAP Modeling in Mathematics competitions.

...I think learning should be enjoyable, but at the same time challenging. For this reason, I provide parents with periodic progress reports and students with periodic assessments. Ever since I took precalculus in 10th grade, I've had a strange fondness for the subject.
