I've tutored several students from ages ranging from 8 years to 18 years in topics such as algebra, geometry, precalculus, calculus, physics, and college preparation. I can create practice tests and worksheets as well. I honestly really love teaching and I try and focus on the "why" rather than the "how". "Why are we using the chain rule?" I feel is always as important of a question, if not more, as "How do we use the chain rule?" I try to emphasize that learning is not memorizing facts and formulas, but it's creating a thorough understanding of principles and ideas.

I scored decently on the ACT with much practice. With patience and hard work, I can help you receive a near perfect (or perfect!) score.

I spent much time applying to several universities my senior year of high school and was accepted into the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Georgia Tech, and a few others. If you're soon to be dealing with this exciting application process, I'd love to sit down with you and help you go over college essays and provide you with general advice regarding the application process.

#### Hobbies

I love being outdoors, and in my spare time enjoy activities such as tennis, long boarding, skiing, and running.Favorite authors include Jack Kerouac, Jon Krakauer, Ray Bradbury, and Carl Sagan.

#### Preferred Subjects
