United States Military Academy at West Point (Economics and German)
I have extensive background in tutoring students of a wide range of ages. My experience working at the Kumon Learning Center in Princeton has helped me to become well-trained in working with a variety of students. I double majored in economics and German. I have a thorough understanding of micro- and macroeconomic theories, statistics, econometrics, and calculus. I have also lived and worked for a couple of years in Germany, and, in combination with my study of the German language, I am fluent with a complete understanding of grammar rules. I am excited to help students achieve their potential!

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.
I have a thorough understanding of biblical history and theology. I have studied the New and Old Testaments both in English and German. I have studied the German bibles by Luther and the Einheitsuebersetzung (unity translation), which provide a different perspective on Christian theology.
One of my double majors is a Bachelor of Science in Economics. I understand micro- and macroeconomic theories, and I have an ability to explain them in understandable terms.
I have had much experience working with students ranging from K-12 in improving their basic math skills. I believe that students improve their math skills by mastering prerequisite techniques first. Most problems with math skills involve insufficient understanding of previous material. I can help identify those problems and address them.
I took AP English Literature in high school. I have also taken several English writing and philosophy classes while at university, so I am very aware of English writing conventions and grammar rules.
I have a thorough understanding of English grammar, and I understand the difficulties in learning a second language so I know how to teach the material. My own mother speaks native Japanese, so I have a first-hand experience in understanding how to teach English to foreigners. I have also had experience teaching English to native German speakers.
I took AP European History in high school and scored a 5 on the AP exam. I also spent 2 years living and working in Germany during which I gained a personal appreciation for European history. I have also studied German at the college level. One of my double majors is German
I studied German in high school, where I took AP German my senior year. I have also lived for two years in Germany. I have continued my study of the German language at West Point, where German is one of my double majors.
I have studied piano for over 15 years, 6 of which was at the New School for Music Study in Princeton, NJ. I have played church accompaniment, prelude, and postlude hymns. I believe in starting in fundamentals, beginning with the basics of music theory and note reading. Basic piano technique builds upon a solid understanding of music theory.
