## Leigha is an amazing tutor for all aspects of ACT SAT prep!

KAREN, 17 lessons with LeighaLeigha A. has helped my son tremendously in all areas of standardized testing (math science, grammar). She is clear and thorough on content areas, clever with strategy, and most important has gotten to know him as a person so she can help him overcome anxieties and blocks, and help him to succeed to the best of his abilities.

Experience:

For three years, I tutored Finite Mathematics, Calculus, Algebra, and more for the math department at Indiana University. In high school, I co-taught my school’s AP Music Theory course, and helped raise the class average AP score to the highest it had been to date!

About me:

My greatest passions are music, mathematics, and helping others develop their own musical and mathematical abilities. I graduated with a 4.0 from Indiana University with a major in music composition and...

#### Ear Training

I'm a graduate student studying music composition at the Curtis Institute of Music, and I recently received my Bachelor of Music in composition with the Highest Distinction (the equivalent of summa cum laude) from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Theory and aural skills is one of my favorite areas of study! I studied on my own to test out of all aural skills requirements and to test out of the first three levels of theory so that I could focus on maintaining a 4.0 and taking Theory IV (Romantic era), Honors Theory V (post-tonal theory), and Mathematical Music Theory. I earned the top awards in counterpoint, harmony, and solfege at the European American Musical Alliance. In high school, I co-taught my school’s AP Music Theory course, focusing particularly on ear training, and helped raise the class average AP score to the highest it had been to date!
