I am a graduate with honors from Connecticut College with a double major in mathematics and philosophy. I have studied nearly every area of mathematics up to the undergraduate or graduate level. In high school, I took AP courses in statistics (5 on exam) and BC calculus (4 on exam). In college, in addition to my coursework I worked in the college's math help center, tutored privately, participated in the mathematics team and the prestigious Putnam Exam, and I was a three-time recipient of the Julian Wells-Bower prize for distinction in mathematics from Connecticut College.
My favorite subjects to tutor are Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Set Theory, Graph Theory, and Logic, but those are by no means a limitation.
I believe anyone can get excited about math if it's done right. I don't talk about math in a boring, complicated way because I do not believe math is boring or complicated.
If you present it in the right way, math is amazing, and very intuitive. I do not make any of my students memorize equations or formulas. Instead, I teach them how to think about math and mathematical concepts and what the best way is to approach problems, and this gives them the tools to solve whatever problems mother nature throws their way.
My other passion is music. I work in a recording studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I have been playing guitar for over 14 years and I compose and perform regularly. I have taught private guitar lessons to students of all ages. When I'm not thinking about music or math I love reading Philosophy and playing Halo 4.
