About Michael


Bio

I have over a decade of experience teaching and tutoring hundreds of students in mathematics, piano, and music theory. While this mostly includes private teaching, I worked as an instructor at Mathnasium in Temecula for a year and have given guest classes in the Palm Springs Unified School District on music-related subjects. I have experience with students of all ages and levels, from beginner to college-level, and also includes some with learning disabilities. I am currently in college as a...

I have over a decade of experience teaching and tutoring hundreds of students in mathematics, piano, and music theory. While this mostly includes private teaching, I worked as an instructor at Mathnasium in Temecula for a year and have given guest classes in the Palm Springs Unified School District on music-related subjects. I have experience with students of all ages and levels, from beginner to college-level, and also includes some with learning disabilities. I am currently in college as a math major, with the aim of becoming a professional mathematician. I recently had the privilege of writing a lesson for TedEd on group theory and its application within music. I have given lecture-recitals for the Steinway society and Palm Springs Unified School District on both musical and mathematical subjects.

The subjects I specialize in include piano, music theory, and all levels of math up to and including AP Calculus. In addition to these, I can assist in preparing for SAT, ACT, and other exams.

I approach these subjects similar to learning a language. Rather than memorizing formulae, I attempt to help my students understand the underlying logic behind music and math. I provide supplementary exercises and assignments, and also give regular feedback regarding my students' progress via email.

My availability is Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm, and occasionally weekends if a student has unique circumstances. My starting fee is $50/hr, not including any supplemental materials needed. I am also available to instruct over the internet and charge $30/hr.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you meet your educational goals!
