I am an experienced teacher who truly LOVES teaching and is committed to constantly learning and improving.

MATH:
I am an expert math tutor with experience teaching students of all ages. I offer tutoring in all K-12 Math, including: Elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Algebra/Trigonometry, Calculus (AB and BC), Regents, SAT and AP prep. With enthusiasm and clear instruction, math can be exciting and fun!

MUSIC:
I am a music teacher, offering lessons in saxophone (all levels and styles), beginner guitar, beginner piano, music theory, ear training, transcription/dictation, Sibelius music notation software, and Pro Tools recording software.

BACKGROUND/EXPERIENCE:
I hold a B.A. in Music from University of Rochester and additional advanced coursework at the prestigious Eastman School of Music. I served as a Teaching Assistant and tutor in music theory as well as a Senior Workshop Leader in Calculus, assisting other workshop leaders in improving their workshops and one-on-one coaching.

I served as musical director of a nationally recognized and award-winning a cappella group, leading hundreds of performances and developing an educational program for elementary, middle, and high school workshops and residencies around the country. In addition, I have coached high school and college vocalists in award-winning cappella recording projects for the last 7 years.

I have performed as a vocalist and instrumentalist at venues all around the country, including venues in NYC such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Symphony Space, and the Highline Ballroom.

PHILOSOPHY:
I am passionate about teaching, patient, attentive, and adaptable to a student's individual goals, strengths, weaknesses, and learning style. There is no one method of teaching concepts and skills that will work for every student, so the approach must be customized. I love finding fun ways to work on a topic or skill, infecting a student with my love of the subject, and seeing a student feel empowered by noticing great improvement in themselves. I believe every student can play to their strengths and overcome their difficulties to succeed.

I look forward to speaking with you and setting our up first lesson!
