Hello! I recently graduated from Columbia University with a B.A. in Music and a 3.8 overall GPA, where I focused on trumpet performance, composition, and music theory. In my work, I focus on classical, experimental, and improvised music. While in college, I also completed coursework in mathematics, physics, computer science, literature, and philosophy, as well as a summer research project in the Columbia Astrophysics Department.

I tutor a variety of subjects and am passionate about helping younger students achieve their goals. I feel strongly that anyone can excel in the classroom and on standardized tests, provided they have both quality instruction and personal motivation. I teach a systematic, step-by-step approach to problem-solving and test-taking that has served me well over the years. Here are my testing credentials:

SAT: 2320 (99th percentile, taken in 2015)
AP Exams: Calculus AB (5), Calculus BC (5), Literature & Composition (5), Music Theory (5), Physics B (4), World History (4)

I live in Harlem, Manhattan, and can either host you in my home or travel to meet you throughout NYC. I hope to hear from and work with you!
