About Me

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, poker. 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 rsums, 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 poker player, I'™m well-versed in the '˜strategic'™ aspect of test-taking.

My lessons are affordable. For music or academic tutoring, my rate is well below the industry standard at expensive aggregators.

About Me

My lessons are engaging and fun and I am extremely patient with students. One lesson with me, and you will see improvement in your child's grades and begin to love Mathematics as much as I do. One lesson with me, and you will be hooked!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will primarily begin with an introduction to the mathematical concept, followed by examples to demonstrate how the concept is used and then finally questions will be assigned for students to attempt in order to make sure they have grasped the material. At the end of each session, the students will have more questions to practice on their own seeing as the key to succeeding in mathematics is to practice.

Not applicable. Lessons given via Skype or Google hangouts, with 'equipment' being a laptop or desktop with a webcam and speaking device.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Not applicable. Lessons will be given via Skype or Google hangouts so clients can learn in the comfort of their home without the hassle of having to travel to a location; money for gas is saved.

Since I believe strongly that everyone can do mathematics and love it, I am very patient in breaking down concepts for my students and specialize in relating mathematics to every day life. I find that mathematics is most useful when applied to present day situations and I tend to incorporate concepts into already-known phenomena.

About Me

I have worked with "regular-education" students, with autistic students [while working with Dr. Nyla Lamm (Professor of Education at Columbia University)] , and with mentally disturbed students. These students are ALL entitled to an education (just like you and I were). I love teaching ALL students. No exceptions!
I have a Masters in TESOL from Fordham University, a New York State [TESOL] Certification, and have experience teaching children and adults. I am very enthusiastic about working with people [because I love it!]. As my resume indicates, I have a degree in English, a Masters in TESOL, and a wide ranging knowledge of Spanish and History (my minors). Additionally, I have taught English as a Second Language to individuals and groups.
Also, I worked with La Guardia Community College as an ESL Professor. This is in additions to the 10 years of Teaching English to various multicultural groups. Because I know both languages, English and Spanish, well; have strong communication skills; and love interacting with people; I feel especially qualified to be part of your staff. I have tutored English to pupils at a correctional facility (OATKA), to college students, migrant workers, blue-collar workers, and professionals as medical doctors. Additionally, I have written standard, collegiate English for the English Club at SUNY Geneseo.
In addition, I have broadened my communication skills by going through Mediation Training, working with people from different cultures, becoming a Notary Public, gotten certified as a Mediator by the Center for Dispute Settlement in Rochester, NY, and going to numerous conferences dealing with Classroom Management, Learning Strategies, Learning Languages and Children Literature (among others).
I would be very pleased to become part of your staff. I am available for an interview at any time on a two days notice.
