About Me

Hi, my name is Gene. I've been teaching piano lessons for the last two and a half years in the North Raleigh area and I'd love to teach you how to play!

I've been playing the piano for 15 years. I had private lessons through high school and I took lesson for six semesters from a college professor during my university studies. I've had experience playing in churches, accompanying collegiate and graduate level voice lessons, and playing for weddings.

I'm also offering tutoring services as well. I've had experience taking the SAT and GRE, and I took and passed 5 AP tests in high school. I've listed the areas I believe I could offer these and other kinds of educational training.

About Me

***VISIT MY WEBSITE AT 206TUTORING.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION***

Hello! My name is Chris. I'm a private tutor and piano teacher in and around Seattle. I have a terrific time learning about the things I enjoy in life. I would like to share this kind of fun with you or your son or daughter!

Piano lessons and tutoring. Reading, writing, math, test prep, etc. Affordable, fun, professional, effective.

TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS

Academics: B.A. from Columbia, 2370 SAT (800 Math, 800 Reading, 770 Writing), 1590 GRE (800 Verbal, 790 Math), seven years' tutoring experience, all ages, almost all abilities.

Piano: repertoire from Beethoven to Chopin to Ravel to Mussorgsky, experience as a symphony and opera critic in college, comprehensive knowledge of classical music and music theory, 15 years' experience playing, all ages, beginner to strong-intermediate abilities.

PHILOSOPHY

Academics: I tutor because I want to work against the worst aspects of school, and embody the best ones. I tutor to make school more worthwhile and more fun for my students. I tutor to relieve anxiety and frustration and stress. I tutor to help students cultivate their sense of curiosity. I'll raise your or your kid's grades by putting school in the right context, and giving them the skills to deal with it, emotionally and intellectually.

Piano: My lessons are fun. I love music, and I can help you love it too! I want to teach you how to play what you want to play, how you want to play it, and to that end I promote a relaxed atmosphere while also gently emphasizing technical skills to bring out your musicality. This doesn't mean you won't learn --‚” quite the contrary! --‚” it means that you'll be put in a better mindset to learn, since you'll have a great time coming to lessons and you'll want to practice. I can motivate you to discover what you like most about music and enjoy the gift of musicianship well into adulthood.

MORE SPECIFICS

Reading and writing: Everyone needs language skills. With the rise of the Internet, the increasing difficulty and subjectivity of college admissions, and the competition for scarce jobs hinging on resumes, interviews, and communication skills, a proficiency in reading and writing is more critical than ever before. I've written for, and been paid by, several different websites on topics ranging from modern TV to old literature and card games. I was an English literature student at Columbia. I read and write compulsively. I tutored writing in 2007 to students ages 9 to 18, and was a content editor and proofreader for a boutique educational-software firm in 2007, 2008, and 2011-2012.

Math: Nearly every math class could be aced by a majority of students, but math is poorly taught. I can help by teaching conceptually. In high school, I was three years ahead in math, finishing AP Calculus AB as a sophomore, AP Statistics as a junior, and AP Calculus BC as a senior. I scored a 5 on each of those AP tests. I played poker (a math-based game) professionally from 2010 to 2011.

Test prep: Test-prep is one of the easiest and cheapest investments you can make. My SAT score was 800 in Math, 800 in Reading, and 770 in Writing. My GRE scores were 800 in Verbal and 790 in Math. I got 5's on the AP US History, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Statistics tests, and 4's on the English Language and Composition and European History tests. As a gamer, I'™m well-versed in the 'strategic' aspect of test-taking.

---

It's important to me that my lessons remain affordable to maintain the kind of diversity and plurality of experience in my students that makes education worthwhile.. For music or academic tutoring, my rate is well below the industry standard at expensive aggregators.

If you're interested in my services for any of these subjects, please don't hesitate to contact me!

Best, CML
