Georgetown University (Linguistics)
I am a Georgetown graduate (Magna Cum Laude) and generally erudite person. Currently I am at the end of a two year Post-Baccalaureate program at Columbia University in Applied Mathematics, preparing to apply to PhD programs.
After graduating from Georgetown, I worked for five years as competitive ballroom dancer and coach; during my time teaching I have produced several national championship couples, and I teach ballroom dance at the School of American Ballet. I have thousands of hours of time teaching and have given a great deal of thought to how I provide instruction.
Because of my thousands of hours of teaching, and high level of personal academic achievement, I am confident that I can advance any student's knowledge and confidence in any subject at the middle or high school level, though my most advanced knowledge lies in mathematics, and I am most excited to teach Calculus (First and Second semester, or AB/BC level calculus at the AP level; I received scores of 5/5 on both exams), as well as the courses leading up to calculus (Algebra I/II, precalculus).
I am comfortable providing instruction in Calculus AB/BC (1, 2 at the university level), as well as Precalculus, Algebra 1 and 2. With some warning I am also happy to instruct high school level physics (up through AP level, with or without calculus), as well as standardized tests (SAT in particular; I received a score of 1540/1600).
Any questions? Feel free to contact me. I'm happy to offer an introductory lesson at discount to assess compatibility and make sure that I feel I am able to adequately address your needs.

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 use calculus literally on a daily basis and have for years. As a student of applied mathematics and a research assistant in atmospheric science, calculus is the foundational mathematical discipline for all of my work.
As a grad student in applied mathematics, linear algebra (alongside differential equations) is the central discipline in my work. Besides for a basic undergrad course in linear algebra, I have taken 3 courses (dynamical systems, linear operator theory, and quantum mechanics) wherein linear algebra was the main mathematical tool employed. As such, I have a strong grasp of basic matrix operations and linear algebra, and am more than capable of teaching an entire first course if needed.
