...I have personally taught this class a number of times. It is a wonderful introduction to proofs as well as foundational trigonometry that will set the stage for calculus and other deeper applied mathematics. While teaching at an international school in India I had the privilege of teaching Pre-Algebra for a number of years.

...My experience as a graduate student provided me with excellent time and project management skills, as I often had to multi-task and divide my attentions between diverse projects and duties. I am a very experienced music scholar and educator with a PhD from UC Berkeley in Music. I studied classical voice for many years while in high school and college, and sang with various choirs.

...I earned a B.A. from the University of California and received a full tuition scholarship and Research/Teaching Assistantship to complete my M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Miami. I finished course requirements with high marks (GPA: 3.98) and successfully defended my doctoral dissertation. Thank you for taking the time to read my tutor profile.

...My approach to tutoring is to guide the student to develop their own system of learning. I lecture students with the intention of empowering them to become their own tutors and to evolve past the need for my services. I guide students to become more proficient at the process of learning itself.

...It is essential when teaching calculus to make full use of graphs, even when problems can be solved exclusively with equations. There is frequent confusion between a function and its derivative function, and this confusion can be remedied only by lots of practice with graphs. Calculus classes now include some physics, particularly the physics of trajectories.
