BIO: Highly experienced, MIT/Harvard-trained tutor, specializing in rigorous academic tutoring, test preparation, and enrichment for high school, college, and graduate students across the sciences and humanities. EXPERIENCE: More than 7000 hours of experience in the Boston metro area and online; highest-rated tutor in Massachusetts in the subjects I teach at WyzAnt, an online tutoring marketplace. (See http://www.wyzant.com/tutors/MITHarvardTutor for more than 1000 5-star ratings and 50 written testimonials.) TEACHING PHILOSOPHY: I teach for deep mastery and lasting understanding, not just better grades and test scores. My style is heavily interactive and rigorous. I never use a script, and I always focus on critical reasoning. I emphasize logical and conceptual foundations and clear and creative thinking, never rote memorization or mechanical rule-following.
