I am an undergraduate at Indiana University studying math and music. In math, I have been taking graduate courses for two years and received straight A's in these courses. I have received national awards (the Goldwater scholarship, a top 25 finish in the Putnam exam), and high recognition from the IU math department (the Ciprian Foias Prize, the Marie S. Wilcox scholarship). In high school, I scored a 2400 on the SAT, and earned a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam from self study. I also received a 5 on the AP Statistics exam. I'm expecting to go to math graduate school next year---I've been accepted at the University of Chicago.
I have teaching experience, as well. I spent a summer teaching at a high school math camp, I have been a coach for the Georgia state math team for a few years now, and I'm a grader for the IU math department. I've tutored many people I've encountered, including friends, roommates, and people who've sat next to me on trains, aside from people who have contacted me for my services. And I've been assistant-teaching math online for more than three years. I'm used to people of many levels, from people struggling with prealgebra to people who do well at national and international math competition. I'm comfortable with just about any level of math from middle school through advanced undergraduate courses. The level is not important---I'm just here to help you learn!
I'm also available to tutor music theory. My grades in my first two semesters of the IU theory sequence were both A+; I earned A's in subsequent honors theory courses. I'd be happy to tutor through the first year of undergraduate music theory. Although I'm quite comfortable with the material and have helped my peers several times before, I'll admit that my qualifications and experience for music theory are not as extensive as they are for math, so I'm willing to accept reduced rates for this.
I'm willing to tutor groups. Unfortunately, my transportation is rather limited, so I will probably not be able to accept appointments outside of Bloomington, IN. I expect to be available through early May.
