About

Casey graduated with university honors and multiple departmental honors from Johns Hopkins University, earning bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics & Statistics, and a master’s in Biomedical Engineering. In high school, he was a National AP scholar and an AP scholar with distinction, earning 5s on the AP Calculus BC, AP Psychology, AP English Literature, and AP English Language exams, and scoring 1550 on the SAT.

Starting in high school, continuing through his years of undergrad and his present-day work on his PhD, Casey has taught dozens of students, helping them achieve perfect scores in AP Calculus BC and the ACT, and raising their overall SAT scores from below 1200 to above 1500. He has also tutored students in college classes, including Calculus III and Riemannian Geometry, helping several students raise their course grades by at least two full letters.

As a tutor, Casey focuses on the individuality of each student, tailoring his approach to their learning style. Students and parents have remarked on Casey’s empathy for all thinkers, no matter their proficiency or the subject being taught. Many students appreciate that Casey relates to their experience of not understanding something immediately and having to work hard to first achieve comprehension, then, later, mastery.
