Tyler R Waterhouse

Mathematics Class XI Dean M.A. Princeton University

Tyler Waterhouse, a MS/US Math Teacher, US XC coach, and US Outdoor Instructor, began working at Waterford in the fall of 2013. Originally hailing from New Hampshire and having attended St. Paul’s School and Princeton University, Tyler is delighted to work in a community that so values the liberal arts philosophy that framed his own schooling. Tyler’s path to Waterford is unique in that he graduated Princeton in 2003 with a BA in Economics with minors in Finance and German. His senior thesis, a requirement of every Princeton graduate, was entitled: “Super Commercials: An Analysis of Super Bowl Advertisements in an Investor Relations Framework.” Tyler’s first job out of college was working for an option trading group on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for Goldman Sachs. After Goldman, Tyler worked five years as an equities, commodities, and currency trader at Wexford Capital, a multi-strategy hedge fund in Greenwich, CT. In 2009, with Tyler’s wife, Lu Lu, in her last year of medical school and a move to Utah pending for her pediatrics residency the following year, Tyler chose to leave finance and seek greater fulfillment from his employment through a career in education. Tyler has served as an apprentice teacher at the New Canaan Country School, student teacher at Rowland Hall while enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Teaching program at Westminster College, and lead MS math and science teacher at McGillis prior to finding Waterford. Since arriving at Waterford in 2013, Tyler has enjoyed the variety of teaching both MS and US students and teaching his way through the full Waterford Mathematics Curriculum. In the summer of 2015, Tyler completed a fellowship at the Klingenstein Summer Institute. Tyler has two sons, Bode and Nash, that keep him well occupied when he is away from school, but still finds time to enjoy the variety of Utah’s landscapes through skiing, biking, and trail running.
