|Preferred Subjects:||Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, SAT Math, Trigonometry, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics|
|Education:||I just graduated from Boston University Academy (a high school affiliate of BU) and am heading to University of Chicago in the fall (I got in through early action).|
|Experience:||Why do I want to be a tutor? Even as a first grader, I felt that the education system in mathematics is lacking in many ways. It’s not as simple as saying, “Memorize the quadratic formula”, or “Apply factorization”. Mathematics should be taught in an intuitive way, and I want to introduce this to as many people as I can. It’s more important to understand concepts rather than using brute force. Not only does this make your mathematics skills better, but it also ingrains an approach that will stick with the rest of your life, and most importantly, it’s fun!|
I've tutored many other high-school students in math subjects ranging from basic algebra to linear algebra.
I've scored a 800 on the SAT II Math 2 subject test and a 5 on the AP BC Calculus test (as well as a 5 on the AB subscore).
Formal Course List:

|Hobbies:||My hobbies are mostly reading math books, chess (5-time MA State Chess Champion and 1-time National Chess Champion) and piano. I also play tennis as well.|
