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!
