Queens Math & Science Tutor

Math and science classes can feel overwhelming, especially if you need a little extra help. Busy teachers and professors can be tough to track down. Teaching assistants are often buried under their own obligations, and they may not be able to teach you in the way that you need. You have other classes, a life, and perhaps a job, and you simply don’t have the time to try to find someone who can help.

Private Tutoring In Math & Science Is The Answer

Private tutoring is an excellent alternative. You don’t have to be a genius to do well in even the most challenging STEM courses. You just need a tutor who can tap into the way you learn.

I am a chemical engineer with more than ten years of experience in the tech sector. I started tutoring during high school, and three years ago, I gave up my engineering career to pursue tutoring full time. I have always had a passion for math and science, and I soon learned that tutoring others could help me sharpen my own skills.

I was valedictorian of my high school class, and I went on to Clarkson University to major in chemical engineering. I tutored others throughout college, all while keeping my own grades up, and I graduated at the top of my major. I went to Tufts University for graduate school, serving as a teaching assistant. I also worked as an engineer and scientist during grad school, primarily in thermal analysis, surface chemistry, clean energy, and measurement techniques.

After graduation, I relocated to San Diego, where I tutored while interviewing for engineering positions. I had extraordinary success as a tutor, drawing more and more students week after week. I decided to give up engineering to become a full-time tutor, and I launched Bricks Tutoring in 2015. I re-launched my private tutoring company in New York after moving here in 2018.

I can help you learn more in less time, improving your results and lowering your stress levels. You can pass that class, ace that exam, or earn the STEM degree you’re dreaming of. Your hard work, coupled with my skills and experience, will get you through even the most challenging STEM courses.
