Loyola University New Orleans (Music - Piano)
I have an undergraduate degree in jazz piano from Loyola University New Orleans. I am currently getting a second degree in computer science and am studying a lot of high-level mathematics in the process. I have a professional background in teaching multiple subjects including music, mathematics, computer science and English. I also have working experience in the field of credit analysis for commercial banking as I have worked for a bank for a couple of years. My skills are wide ranging and I can offer a lot in terms of what I'm capable of teaching. I teach all age groups. I lived in New York for a few years teaching elementary school so I have plenty of experience teaching young children. I've tutored college students in Algebra, Geometry, Trig, Calculus I - III, Computer Programming, Music Theory, Orchestration and other subjects.
I believe in the notion of affordable education for everyone. With the costs of education rising, and the student loan debt crisis getting increasingly out of hand, I am a big believer in alternative forms of education. It is possible to get a university level education without spending a university level amount of money. Websites like KhanAcademy and Coursera are great resources and I encourage all of my students to utilize them. I use websites like these all the time, and many of them are free. My teaching style is this: I teach people to teach themselves. I'm not in the business of keeping students for long periods of time for my own benefit. When I teach a particular subject, I make it my goal to make sure that the student can quickly and comfortably get to a point where they don't need me or anyone else to continue on with the subject.
I study/teach/use multiple areas of mathematics all the time so that I am constantly ready to give explanations on various topics in a simple and understandable way. I help students by guiding them with a series of questions with the goal of getting them thinking about first principles. This in turn often leads them to answering their own questions and provides them a deeper intuition about various mathematical principles. I am a big believer in first principles.
I am quick to respond, and will help you in any way I can think of. It is my goal to get you to a place where you feel comfortable with tackling mathematics on your own.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
