College Level Math & Science Tutor 


Math and science courses can be brutal, and many people need some extra assistance. Yet professors are busy and hard to track down. Teaching assistants are drowning in paperwork, and they may not be able to break down the material in the way you need. You have a full course load, social commitments, activities, and maybe a job. You can’t run all over campus looking for someone who can help.

A Private College Level Tutor Is The Answer


Private tutoring may be the best solution. You don’t have to be a genius to do well in college science and math courses. You simply need a tutor who can teach you in a way that makes sense to you.

I am a chemical engineer who spent more than 10 years in the tech sector, and I have been tutoring since I was a high school student. Three years ago, I left engineering to tutor full-time. I have always loved math and science, and I found that tutoring others helped me refine my own skills.


I was valedictorian of my high school class, and then majored in chemical engineering at Clarkson University. I continued tutoring during college, and I graduated at the top of my major. While I was in grad school at Tufts University, I served as a teaching assistant. I also worked as an engineer and scientist, primarily focusing on thermal analysis, measurement techniques, surface chemistry, and clean energy.

I then moved to San Diego, and I kept tutoring while searching for engineering positions. My tutoring business grew quickly, bringing me new students each week, and I soon decided to to tutor full-time. I founded Bricks Tutoring in San Diego in 2015. After coming to New York in 2018, I relaunched the company here.

I can help you learn more in less time, dramatically boosting your grades while lowering your stress. You can ace your college math and science courses! We will work hard together, mixing your commitment and drive with my skills and experience.
