"Thanks for browsing my profile! I believe that every student can succeed and become brilliant given enough time, resources, and motivation. My approach is both holistic and rigorous, and focuses on both improving one's learning ability as well as their understanding of the subject matter itself.

I can assist with all levels of mathematics, from elementary to graduate, all levels of the natural and social sciences, as well as research and technical writing. I also have a soft spot for history, philosophy, and the humanities. In general, I stress balancing logical and empirical thinking, and believe in the power of dual-brained thinking to help students understand the world around us.

Currently I am an analyst for various charities in the area and tutor as well. I was awarded a MA in Economics from San Francisco State University in June 2018, having also completed coursework requisite for a BS in Mathematics. My research applies network science to finance in electoral politics, media ownership, and message propagation. I have also researched financial market volatility and health-care delivery. I received my BA in Government Studies and Political Science from Lawrence University in June 2011, having completed minor coursework in German and Philosophy. My research focused on politics, law, and international relations.

Finally, I am also a musician. I teach all levels of bass, upright and electric, and beginning guitar and drums. I teach composition, reading, improvisation, and bow technique. Styles in include jazz (be-bop, big band, Latin), rock, funk, blues, and flamenco. I entered Lawrence as a Bass Performance major and played in various jazz and wind ensembles. Through high school I played bass in the school jazz bands, orchestras, and wind ensembles. I also played percussion in the Woodside HS marching band, drums with the First Congregational Church, and have played guitar my entire life.

Thank for your consideration - feel free contact to discuss whether we are a good fit!" less...
