Sylvia has over 12 years experience teaching and tutoring math. She has worked with students at all levels from ages 5-65. Sylvia has an extensive background in test prep and academic tutoring, though she also frequently gives enrichment courses to students on topics that interest them beyond the typical curriculum.
After receiving a Masters Degree in Mathematics with a focus in Algebraic Topology, Sylvia spent two years teaching Pre-Calculus to undergraduates. As a Post-Baccalaureate student at Smith College, she designed and taught a two week course in String Theory. There, she also worked as a TA for an abstract mathematics class, and traveled across the country to present her research in Graph Theory.
For as long as she can remember she has been both a student and a teacher. At the moment, she’s teaching herself violin and learning about animal vision.
