Teaching since:
2010

I hold a Bachelor of Music in Clarinet Performance from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, and am working toward a Master of Teaching in Mathematics at University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I have been teaching and tutoring for about 7 years now, and I guess something is going right in our sessions; all my students are highly successful, I'm such a proud teacher. I would love for your student to be one of them! Please do not hesitate to reach out even if it's just to ask questions; I would love to hear from you!!

I am qualified to teach/tutor such subjects as mathematics (any through calculus; anything beyond that I would need to review and have no trouble doing so), also writing, chemistry, physics, music theory, general music, and SAT prep (predominantly mathematics). I have a private piano and clarinet studio, and though space is limited, I would love for you to join it.

***It is worth mentioning that I currently live in Charlottesville as I finish up the coursework in my program. Unfortunately because of that, I can only accept students virtually if you're not local for me. I do have much experience with virtual lessons, so please do not hesitate to try it out. I will be moving back to Northern Virginia one year from now to do my student-teaching, so in-person lessons can happen if you can be patient and bear with me. Again, I would love to hear from you and hope to get the chance to work with your student.

Even though we live in Chennai, India and sessions are done online, her approach and conceptual teaching of Mathematics for my 10 year old daughter is appreciated.
