Experienced, Excellent Tutor - My Record Speaks For Itself

I am no longer tutoring full-time. This restricts my tutoring availability to evenings on weekdays, but I am still meeting with students. Priority will be given to my regulars, but I am still taking new students if I can find a time to schedule that works for us both. I can help you in over 45 different subjects. As one of the most experienced and most highly rated local tutors, I guarantee satisfaction with my classes. Math and business courses are my specialty; I also tutor programming, ph... [more]

Piano

I have played the piano for over fifteen years, having started when I was six years old. During the first several years, I was certified through level 5 with the certificate of merit system, but stopped participating in that system when I switched piano teachers. I have played for various functions, including accompanying both solo vocalists and choirs, as well as a band. In addition, I have tutored beginning piano students at Westminster College. I focus a great deal on technique, and in early learners the ability to read music. I don't focus a lot on ear training or improvisation, nor on the ability to write music, but I make sure that my students can take a piece of music and learn to play it well.


Business

I was only 2 classes away from graduating with a degree in international business management at Westminster College before switching majors to take advantage of a scholarship. I have been an entrepreneur and small business owner for 3 years, placing in the top 30 student business plans in Utah for the 2011-2012 competition. I have been tutoring business classes for 3 years as well, including a current MBA level economics class.


Computer Programming

I graduated from Westminster College with a degree in Computer Information Systems. In my full-time job, I work as a programmer and web developer. If you have a question that I can't answer off the top of my head, I know where and how to ask the questions and find the answers.


Computer Science

I graduated from Westminster College with a degree in Computer Information Systems. I have two years of experience tutoring both computer programming and computer science. Some topics that I have successfully taught in the past include: boolean algebra, logic gates, algorithms, databases and information retrieval, and (basic) computer security.


PSAT

I did exceptionally well on the PSAT, with a score of 223 (out of 240). This score was high enough to make me eligible for competition in the National Merit Scholar competition, in which I was a finalist. I also scored 2370 on the SAT. Even more important than my raw scores, I am capable of helping others improve their scores. While I cannot guarantee scores exactly like mine, I can help students learn the test-taking techniques that helped me succeed with the PSAT, SAT, and any other multiple choice test. There are two ways of studying for the PSAT and the SAT. The first is to study the actual material, which involves reviewing geometry, algebra I and II, vocabulary, and grammar. The other method of study is to learn to understand the thinking behind a multiple choice test, which will help you prepare for all multiple choice tests for the rest of your life. If you are interested in hiring me as a tutor for the PSAT or SAT, I can teach either or both methods.
