Education

Bachelor's degree (math major) from University of San Diego Graduate degrees (master's, doctorate, math) from UCSD

I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a minor in computer science) from the University of San Diego (USD) and my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in mathematics from the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). I have been tutoring students since I was in high school, including students from Coronado High School, La Jolla Country Day School, USD, SDSU, UCSD, and Australia (online)!

I am currently (school year 2022-2023) teaching (Prealgebra) and subbing (Prealgebra through Calculus) at Art of Problem Solving Academy. I am also currently teaching (Statistics) (also taught Precalculus and AP Calculus AB last school year) at Southern California Yeshiva High School.

I was an Adjunct Professor at San Diego Mesa College, where I taught Pre-Algebra, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, Trigonometry, College and Matrix Algebra, Elementary Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Calculus with Analytic Geometry I/II/III, Discrete Mathematics, Introduction to Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations.

I have also taught at the local universities. At SDSU, I taught Fundamentals of Mathematics, Intermediate Algebra, Topics in Mathematics, Introduction to Linear Algebra, History of Mathematics, and Algebraic Structures. At UCSD, I taught Calculus for Science and Engineering II. At USD, I taught Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Calculus I/II, and Applied Mathematics for Science and Engineering I/II.

When I was in grad school, I was a TA for Introduction to Differential Equations, Number Theory, and Partial Differential Equations.

My approach to tutoring is the Socratic method, which is the use of open-ended questions to engage a student in discussion and guide him/her towards some kind of insight.
