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.

Excellent math tutor.

Murat worked with my daughter on common core algebra 2 problems. They communicated well and she felt that she learned a lot. Very happy with Murat's knowledge and tutoring skills.

Mary, 1 lesson with Murat

Murat is excellent

Murat has been working with our 9 year old son on advanced math. Everything about the experience has been terrific. From the outset, Murat has been responsive, responsible, and reliable. He is thoughtful about lesson plans, and patient and encouraging in his pedagogy. Our son loves him, and comes away from his sessions more and more excited about what he's learning. We feel fortunate to have found Murat!
