"I am an inquisitive student of the seemingly disparate disciplines of mathematics and music. I am currently a Pure Mathematics PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center in Manhattan. I also have my BM from the Crane Institute for Music Business in Music Business with a specialization in double bass and my MA in Pure Mathematics from SUNY Potsdam.

I most enjoy the process of developing a student's understanding from the foundations. All too often, teachers of math are not familiar with the foundations of what they teach and cannot discuss the motivation behind the definitions and facts that students are required to learn and understand. This is unfortunate. I have an exceptional understanding of how and why math concepts "work" and am excited to share this with students.

For my graduate study, I specialized in algebraic geometry. I have taken Calculus I, II, III, Linear Algebra I, II, Set Theory and Logic, Theory of Sets (graduate), Modern Algebra I, II, Abstract Algebra I, II (graduate), Advanced Calculus I, II, Real Analysis I, II (graduate), Complex Analysis I (graduate), and have tutored Probability and Statistics. I have also taken a sequence of business courses for my Music Business degree, including Micro/Macroeconomics, Accounting, Marketing, and Management. I can tutor/teach any form of math you need me to tutor/teach, basically!

I am a young, patient and passionate tutor with an interdisciplinary background. My musical and business backgrounds allow me to speak articulately and passionately about math with students who may not find math so fascinating or understandable. I have myriad examples of real-world applications in mind when I discuss math with students, especially since I have been involved in research projects regarding the application of math to quantum computing and am an amateur app developer - fascinating stuff!" less...
