Jeremy W.

Berkeley, CA

Bgcheck Background Checked


I specialize in collegiate music school consultations and advising. I work with students and parents to help assemble a solid strategy to increase the students' chances of getting into their top music school choices. I have auditioned at many music schools as a percussionist and as a composer, and have endured rigorous placement exams and evaluations. I have gained an intimate understanding of the mysterious inner-workings of music school admissions.

I've been teaching Algebra for 4 years and my students have gone on to increase their testing averages as well as better understand their material. My goal is to not only help the student do better on tests but to better understand the material in order to fully succeed in class and be confident in themselves. I try to work towards the student's method of learning in order to actively engage them. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Profile_85284_pi_RodK%20T1
"I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!"
