Math Tutoring

Offering in-person tutoring in University Heights, San Diego, and remote through Zoom.

I believe math can be taught better. Instead of rote memorization, applying formulas without meaning, or telling students “that’s just how it’s done”, I find that it’s possible to engage students such that they develop a native fluency with their mathematical tools. It’s an amazing thing to inherit the mathematical tools of our species, and I find too many students are shut out because their teachers are unwilling to meet them where they are.

So I offer a safe space for students, whether they are struggling with a class or seeking extracurricular advancement, whether they’re practicing arithmetic, geometry, calculus, or anything in between or beyond.

I hold a B.S. in Mathematics from Stanford University. I’ve been employed as a software engineer at Google working on Tensorflow and as a mathematical programmer at an artificial intelligence startup where I conducted research into neural networks for unsupervised learning. I’ve been tutoring math for over 20 years, beginning with volunteering to help my peers, and began freelance programming in 2004.
