I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn math whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Hello prospective students! The most important things are I love music and I work for you. I have a bachelor's degree in music composition and a piano performance minor from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

I teach all ages from beginner to intermediate students. Lessons are catered to the goals of each student, no two lessons the same.

For young beginners I teach rhythm and pith and focus on ways to get them excited about music.

for older/intermediate students I offer lessons on piano performance, music theory and history, music composition and recording.

I believe that my job as teacher is to help you define your goals and achieve them. I am excited to teach piano performance, music theory and music history. I also have 5 years of professional recording experience for those who are interested in recording techniques and the industry. My philosophy towards teaching is spending ample time building a concrete foundation with core concepts to then build on. Please contact me ...

About Andrew

I am a graduate from the Chicago College of Performing Arts Conservatory with a Bachelor of Music Composition and a minor in piano performance. I have been playing piano and flute since 2006 and started composing/song writing in 2009. That passion drove me through collage to get my degree. While

Aparna
Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.
Patricia C.
Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

"Amazing Teacher, my kids LOVE their lessons with Jordan!

My children have been taking lessons with Jordan now for just over a month, and they are loving it! My 7 year old son is doing Guitar, and he has learned to tune his own guitar and is able to play simple songs with 4 basic chords. My daughter who is 5 is taking Piano lessons with Jordan and is able to play 2 simple songs, and able to identify notes on the keyboard while reading music. I appreciate that Jordan teaches the actual music rules and reading of music as well as numbers for the fingers. He is great about having the kids hold themselves and their hands correctly, and having them keep trying something until they get it right and reinforcing the correct practice once it is right. I would refer anyone to Jordan to learn an instrument! He is amazing!"
