Help with Homework and Career/College Prep! I use a didactic approach


I studied at Cornell and now work in the financial industry. I have studied many years and in addition I have seen and review many different resumes. I try to use a instructive approach to teaching, and also looking at different problems from various perspectives and focus on the method, not just the answer.


I have been tutoring on and off for 10+ years, and have tutored many students along the way. I have helped students achieve A's in computer science, math, and chemistry classes, as well as TA'ed at a graduate level. I have mainly tutored in STEM classes, foreign languages, and some social sciences (economics, history).
