What I do
I’ve been tutoring and teaching professionally since I was a high school student in 1990 in mathematics, chemistry, and writing. I have an MIT degree in Mechanical Engineering and focus that part of my career on environmental startups.
I have a high-energy approach, using fun rewards and positive feedback. I use serious challenges to impart a love of problem solving and beautiful solutions. Some of my favorite topics include logic, nets and base shifting.
I feel it’s important to present different approaches in order to find the best match for a particular student’s learning style, which is part of why I particularly enjoy one-on-one tutoring/mentoring.
