About Kramer

Hi, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I absolutely adore learning, and since I excelled in school I was naturally drawn to tutoring. I thought it might just be a good way to make some extra money, but what I didn't expect was how much I'd love it. Working one-on-one with somebody is incredibly rewarding to me. I seem to have a natural talent for explaining concepts in a way people can understand. There's a reason I have a perfect 5-star rating on this site, and it's because I have a strong understanding of the subject matter I teach and a way of teaching that makes my students comfortable.

In high school, I took and passed 11 AP tests including Economics (macro and micro), Chemistry, English Lit. and Composition, Calculus, Statistics, European and US History, Music and Psychology. I got a 33 on my ACT (30 - Science, 33 - Math, 35 - English, and 36 - Reading), and as I got older, I came to thoroughly love mathematics - so that's now my main focus. But I'm happy to offer my services on any subject. One thing I don't have under my belt (for now) is a college degree. I left the University of Utah in my early twenties to pursue music. I currently spend some amount of my time each year writing and recording music, or touring the country with my band (I play the piano and it's a rock band, if you wanted to know).

Just because I'm not currently pursuing my degree doesn't mean I don't value knowledge, though. I consider myself an auto-didact or life-long student and I've taught myself dozens of subjects that I now comfortably teach to others. I spend hours every week working through online courses or MOOCs to expand my knowledge base and make sure I'm prepared to help my students. I think this somewhat unorthodox approach is a plus, however. I mean, if I can teach it to myself, then I can teach it to you. I was always good in school, but it wasn't until I started exploring subjects on my own that I really developed a depth of understanding. Eventually, I do intend to return to school to get my degree in mathematics with the intention of teaching.

I tend to take sessions in public places like libraries or coffee shops, but I am happy to work with you to find the best place possible. Feel free to message me to set up a lesson or if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your consideration. And have a great day!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I've worked hands-on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Algebra I concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. The important thing is to make sure these principles are solid, or else every math class after this will be extremely difficult.

Algebra 2

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Algebra II concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. The important thing is to be sure that you understand the way these capstone algebra ideas relate to the rest of mathematics.

Calculus

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Calculus concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. Calculus is my favorite subject and even though it is difficult, it is a beautiful subject. It is an incredibly powerful brand of mathematics and very useful.

Geometry

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Geometry concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. I believe that without a strong basis in Geometry, then all graphical analysis for future mathematics becomes remarkably difficult--not to mention the usefulness of geometry in day to day life.

Logic

As a philosophy minor I've had to take and pass Logic I and II at the University of Utah. I've only ever tutored one other person in this subject, but I'm confident I could tutor anyone who needs help in this subject.

Prealgebra

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Prealgebra concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children.

Precalculus

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Precalculus concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. Without these core principles (especially an emphasis on graphing) then all math after this is unnecessarily hard.

Trigonometry

I've worked hands on with students from 7th grade to 12th grade. I've taught lessons on Trigonometry concepts for classrooms sized up to 20 children. I feel like trigonometry is the lost art in early mathematics. It has a bad rap for being too difficult and too arcane, but, once mastered, I've found it to be incredibly interesting and useful.
