Algebra 1

I've worked with many teenagers and adults to understand and apply algebra 1 principles. Some of my students just need a refresher; others need to work on fundamentals. I like to work problems forwards and backwards to make sure the student understands not only how to set up certain types of problems, but how to think them through and how to check their answers.

SAT Math

To score well on SAT math, you need a firm grasp of the content covered on the test, quick computational skills, good test pacing, and insight into the College Board's favorite question types, as well as the tricks to use and traps to avoid along the way. I've worked with many teenagers as a private math tutor and especially enjoy the puzzle-like challenge of SAT math questions. Leave it to me to show you the ropes and get the high-quality, expert-led practice you need under your belt.


GRE

I've taught several GRE prep courses and GRE math refresher courses at the University of Washington. The GRE does test actual math and verbal knowledge. But, just as importantly, it also tests problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and logic. I focus on both the content and the strategy.

Piano

I took 10 years of formal piano lessons including music theory classes in high school and college. I consistently earned top marks in adjudicated festivals and events. From 2010-2015, I owned my own studio, where I taught 20+ piano lessons a week. I've also given several solo recitals; performed in a number of ensembles, including concerto with orchestra; accompanied dozens of vocalists, instrumentalists, and choirs; and participated in improvisational music events.
