About Theo


Bio

Hello! My name is Theo and I have been tutoring students in SAT I, SAT II, ACT, GRE, AP and college math, music, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint for over 10 years.

I graduated with distinction from Stanford University with a BS in Civil Engineering, and I've spent the last 5 years managing projects for startups and Fortune 500 companies. As a tutor, I've helped many high school students to become more confident in STEM subjects, ace their standardized tests, and feel empowered...

Hello! My name is Theo and I have been tutoring students in SAT I, SAT II, ACT, GRE, AP and college math, music, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint for over 10 years.

I graduated with distinction from Stanford University with a BS in Civil Engineering, and I've spent the last 5 years managing projects for startups and Fortune 500 companies. As a tutor, I've helped many high school students to become more confident in STEM subjects, ace their standardized tests, and feel empowered in the college application process.

As well, I am an experienced piano teacher and performer of both classical and jazz music. I love sharing my passion for music - not just the technique or the performances, but the theory, the musicality, and the fun of it. I focus heavily on sight reading, ear training, and improvisation - all key skills to become a well-rounded musician.

Finally, for working professionals seeking to save time or advance in their careers, I offer targeted tutoring for Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Powerpoint.

During my teaching career, I have continued to perform in classical and jazz music festivals as a soloist, band member, arranger, and accompanist. For classical curriculum, I follow the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) guidelines, which provide a graduated approach to playing and learning theory culminating in the ARCT designation.

Patient and knowledgeable

Theo took the time to get to know what we wanted to learn in our piano lessons. My six-year-old daughter and I are both taking lessons, and he is able to work with both of us in an individualized and knowledgeable way.

Terrific teacher

Theo is a terrific teacher who quickly observed each of my kids’ learning styles and tailored his lesson plans to each of my kids. He keeps the kids excited about music. Really excellent!
