Math Tutor/Educator and Musician

Blake P.
My name is Blake, and I use they/them pronouns. I graduated summa cum laude from Boston Conservatory at Berklee in 2020 majoring in Music Composition. I've worked in educational, community, regional, and professional theaters as a composer, music director, and pianist since 2012. I'm also a 5-star teacher on Outschool, where I've taught classes on songwriting, music theory, audition prep, and mathematics since 2020. I've also taught private music lessons in songwriting, voice, and piano since...

#### Algebra 1

I am going into an MS in Math at Portland State University. Most of my tutoring experience thus far is in tutoring Algebra 1, so I have a good idea of what is in a typical Algebra 1 curriculum. Algebra 1 is an important foundation for all of the math I have done since, so I know the subject very well.

Calculus,
#### Calculus

I am going into an MS in Mathematics at Portland State University. To get into this program, I have had to take the whole calculus sequence, Differential Equations, and Real Analysis, which all involve a lot of calculus. I received an average grade of an A in all of these courses, and I got a 5 on the AP Calculus AB test in high school. Now I am learning more about Real Analysis, which is the theory behind calculus. This helps me understand Calculus more deeply, which makes it easier to explain difficult concepts.

Precalculus,
#### Precalculus

PreCalculus is one of my favorite math subjects, and has served as a strong foundation for my continued work in mathematics. As someone starting an MS in Mathematics who has taken advanced proof-based courses, I still use concepts from PreCalculus regularly.
