My name is Murat. I graduated in 2008 from Cornell with a degree in math and subsequently got a master's degree in music from the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently pursuing music as my career, but I still love math and teach math ranging from elementary school to high school to SAT and GRE. My style of teaching is based on really understanding concepts and I particularly enjoy and specialize in enrichment tutoring. I don't believe in teaching to the test or teaching tricks and gimmicks. In my experience, people's fear of math is often what leads them to do badly in it, and once I go to the roots of the concepts involved, I've seen students both doing well and starting to actually enjoy math.

In addition to this, I'm also a guitar teacher. I play and write music professionally and teach guitar at the University of Pennsylvania.
