I love math; I truly do. Since as long as I can remember, I've always found it fascinating, interesting, and highly rewarding. But what I love even more than ripping through a problem set is sharing my passion for math with ambitious students.

I've been teaching math to other students ever since I was in middle school. Throughout my academic and professional life, I have continuously set time aside to help kids understand all sorts of math concepts. Why? Because math is a subject matter that I not only enjoy thoroughly, but one that I am able to adeptly teach. No matter who you are or what your educational level, I am 100% confident that I can bring you clarity in whatever math subject you are studying. I have helped all ages of kids learn arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus. If you are a motivated student shooting for excellence, I want to teach you.

From kindergarten through high school, I attended a private school for the gifted in the midwest. My classmates were extremely bright and very passionate about learning. Despite the stiff competition, I was the top math student in my class throughout my entire primary education. This was partially because I had a natural affinity for math, but also due in large part to my focus and diligent practice. I loved math and I wanted to be the absolute best. Accordingly, I pushed myself harder than anyone else in order to understand the material thoroughly. Because of my careful attention to detail and devotion to understanding mathematics, I cultivated an uncanny ability to convey the concepts in a clear, digestible manner. I understand what it takes to achieve academic and professional excellence because I have walked the path myself. 

After high school, I attended the University of Michigan where I majored in computer science and economics. I then worked as a software developer for nearly three years before attending law school at Northwestern University. Because of my software expertise, I went on to become a patent litigator at two of the best intellectual property law practices in the country. During my legal career, I worked with a number of fortune 500 companies who needed help protecting their intellectual property. After practicing law for four years, I finally realized in 2013 that I had to make a change. Patent law wasn't my end all be all. So what was I to do? "If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose." It was that very sentiment led me back to math education as a full time career. 

I have taught core math subjects to an array of students at both private schools and inner city public schools. I have seen every level of academic proficiency and have learned one beautiful truth: anyone can be an excellent math student. There's no quick fix and no secret recipe; you simply need (1) a great teacher, (2) good study habits, and (3) a willingness to work. If you can nail down these three components, the sky is the limit!
