James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

About Kat
Hi! My name is Kat. I've tutored math off & on all of my life, well at least since 3rd grade. I graduated college with a BS in Math & a Teaching Credential in 1973. However, I worked as an Engineer most of my adult life including a lot of computer programming, technical analyses, strategic planning and public speaking. I have a lot of experience with APPLYING math concepts as well as tutoring them! I also tutor Reading Comprehension as easily & effectively as Math.

I love to answer the student questions about "why am I learning this?" and "when will I ever use this." I specialize in all math from very basic up through Algebra I and Geometry because #1= I love them! #2= I can usually relate ANY math concept you need to learn to your own present life and future goals and #3= I can teach most concepts 3 or more different ways, as
needed, until you're sure you know it.

I've had my own tutoring business for ten years and helped hundreds of students. I've also trained dozens of tutors. I recently moved from Northern California to Connecticut. I look forward to meeting you & making math FUN!

About Professor (Kair)
I love to teach and especially love to teach math and writing. I like to focus on mathematics, which to me is like writing, because students sometimes think that if they are good at one (for example, writing) then they cannot be good at the other. I am here to tell you that you can understand and be good at both. I teach both. My writing (as well as literature and speech communication students) learn from me and get to think mathematically while my math students get to think like writers (everything is planned and is a process). It may sound complicated or strange, but it really is not. Math is pure fun! Math is about patterns, and colours, and music, and shapes, and just about everything that makes ideas come to life! Like my writing students embark upon a journey toward being successful in an area in which they may not have had much suc
cess in the past. So, I say to all who wish to work with me: Hold your breath. Exhale with a smile. Dive into the world of math and math sense!

Is your child struggling in math? There are many reasons why someone may be struggling in math. They could have dyscalculia or math anxiety. They have trouble relating math to something that interest them. They have a poor foundation in math. They try memorizing concepts and formulas without really understanding them. They get over frustrated because they don't understand the question and give up. They think it's boring and don't want to learn. I'll figure out the reason as to why your child is struggling and help them overcome it and teach them what they need to succeed.
