Understanding why companies make decisions such as expanding into a new market or investing in a new product or service begins with understanding and analyzing the companies strategic positioning. In this class we will learn about what strategic positioning is, why it is important and how it impacts the decisions and strategies of different companies.

I have tutored hundreds of students in various subjects, formats, and locations. I have taught students both online and in-person subjects ranging from chess, SAT, ACT, computer science, SHSAT, and personal finance. I have hosted large classes as well as one-on-one sessions. In high school, I have taught SHSAT at a tutoring school, chess at a non-profit organization and for an after school program. As a college student, I host online chess workshops as well as private lessons. I cater my lessons to the needs of the class and individual and strive to make the topic engaging, interactive, and fun!
