Regents Exam Prep  

The math and science Regents exams can be intimidating, and many students aren’t sure of the best way to prepare. Prep courses can be crowded and impersonal, and the material may not be presented in the way you learn best. Your teachers are busy and can be tough to pin down. You have a full high school class schedule, conflicting family and social obligations, and perhaps a job. You don’t have time to run around looking for the best way to prepare for your Regents exams.

Choose Private Tutoring For Regents Exams Preparation

Private tutoring may be the solution you are looking for. You don’t have to be a genius in math or science to get a great score. You just need a tutor who can break down the material and the psychology of the tests in the way that you need.

I am a chemical engineer who spent more than a decade in the tech sector. I began tutoring when I was in high school, and I made the decision three years ago to leave engineering and tutor full time. I have always had a true passion for math and science, and I found that tutoring helped me refine my own skills.


I was valedictorian of my high school class, and I attended Clarkson University as a chemical engineering major. I continued tutoring while in college, and I graduated at the top of my major. In graduate school at Tufts University, I was a teaching assistant. I also worked as a scientist and engineer, primarily in thermal analysis, clean energy, surface chemistry, and measurement techniques.


I moved to San Diego after grad school, and I continued tutoring while interviewing for engineering positions. My tutoring practice grew rapidly, with new students finding me each week. I soon decided to start tutoring full-time, and I launched Bricks Tutoring in 2015. I relaunched my tutoring company in New York after moving here in 2018.
