Nothing is more exciting than to watch a student finally grasp a concept. His face lights up. His fingers don't just pluck out the melody, they create MUSIC. I teach piano because doing so gives me a chance to share that joy. With eleven years of piano training and a few years of teaching experience, I am equipped to give piano lessons. I have worked mostly with beginning piano students, especially those who have never had a lesson in their life. Progressing at a natural pace, I work with my students to build that basic knowledge and to instill the technical skills required without letting them lose sight of the fun and creativity of playing piano.
I also have an expertise in the area of the English language. I have been a reading tutor for elementary students, focusing on vocabulary and reading comprehension. My BA in English has provided me with a wealth of insights into literature, grammar, and writing. I would be interested in tutoring these subjects, especially if I could work one-on-one with a student to help develop their writing style. Being able to read and write effectively are valuable skills for anyone to attain.
Also, I have personally passed a number of the CLEP and Dantes tests, which can be taken for college credit. If anyone is planning to take those, I would gladly be of service. I know the useful resources, the helpful study skills, and the test-taking tips to help you succeed. For high school students, I also know the skills and tips to excel in the Reading and English sections of the ACT.
