About me

Industry Education
Occupation Academic Coach
Location Sausalito and Santa Rosa, California, United States
Introduction I help students to learn and love mathematics, produce outstanding results on standardized tests, and thrive as productive, successful scholars. Students of mine go from D's and F's to A's and B's, raise their SAT scores by as much as 450 points or more, and dramatically increase their confidence and competence as thinkers and problem solvers. I began my career as a private teacher giving music lessons at the age of 16, and have operated a professional academic coaching practice for four decades. Since 1977, it's been my privilege to serve as academic coach, tutor, and mentor to well over fifteen hundred private students of all ages, helping them to reach the pinnacle of their abilities, attain ambitious educational goals, and achieve enduring success as students and young people. My interests include: Bollywood films, art, archery, Macs, music, recreational math and science, philosophy, psychology, history, comedy, saving the world, and visiting the in-laws in Bali, Indonesia.
