I majored in both Economics and Music History and Analysis at Northeastern University, graduating Summa Cum Laude in May of 2013. During this time I took a variety of coursework while simultaneously acting as a tutor for the University's Center for Peer Tutoring, where I obtained the College Reading and Learning Association Level One Peer Tutoring Certification. While at school I also worked with youth, overseeing an after school music program where I taught guitar lessons and acted as a youth mentor. From these experiences I learned teaching methods that allowed me to effectively work with a wide range clients ranging from elementary school students to college seniors.
With regards to tutoring economics, I have experience tutoring subjects ranging from Principles of Microeconomics and Principles of Macroeconomics to Applied Econometrics.
A little about my formal music training:
While at Northeastern University I took music coursework including, Music Theory I - IV, Musicianship I - IV, Principles of Music Literature, and themed music history coursework that examined European, American, Middle Eastern, Indian, Korean, and African music traditions.
Ear training was a prominent focus in my coursework, particularly in Musicianship I - IV, where I learned a number of effective ear training exercises including a variety of dictation exercises that focus on identifying and internalizing rhythmic and melodic ideas.
I honed my musicianship outside of this coursework while at Northeastern University through guitar and piano lessons with University faculty and performance in the University's Jazz Choir and Blues Rock ensembles.
