Stephen graduated from MIT in 2011 with a degree in Mathematics with Computer Science, as well as minors in Physics and Theater Arts. Before that, he attended the highly competitive Lynbrook High School in California, where he participated heavily in both math and robotics competitions, and received numerous awards for his success. Since then, he has been working in the software industry, though he continues to work with competitive math teams, mentor high school robotics teams, and generally support budding students in their endeavors.
Even off the clock, Stephen is deeply passionate about math and science. He always enjoys learning something new, and even more so sharing it with others, which he has been doing since the beginning of high school. His favorite form of procrastination: helping someone else with their own work. When there is no one else around with a problem to solve, he spends his free time solving curious math and physics problems of his own, programming, cooking, acting, and working on his upcoming science fiction novel.
“Richard has been wonderful to work with and helps a lot with keeping me motivated and on track with studying. I feel like he is really invested in helping me improve and believes in my ability to do so. I am very happy with my decision to work with him over taking other online courses for GRE prep.”
