I base my classes on three very important factors:
1. My students personal needs and the need to succeed in with their tests and homeworks
2. I also use many visual materials to understand the underlying geometry of every problem
3. It is also crucial to learn how to write and show the solutions to every problem in a friendly and organised manner.
I am both a mathematician and a musician. I've been teaching math and piano for many years and I have experience helping every single student to succeed in their academic and life goals.
I have a Bachelor's in pure and applied mathematics and a bachelor's and master's in classical piano and jazz respectively.

I am a Librarian at the public library where German has taught many students. I have witnessed his professional manner with students of all ages. Several of the students have commented to me how much he has helped them with their math classes, and that they finally were able to understand challenging concepts. In fact, one student has continued with German online via Skype when he moved away!
