I am a versatile, creative, patient and friendly presence in the educational environment of my pupils. My approach utilizes a broad palette of learning tools presented with a healthy balance of disciplined focus and relaxed humor. I strive to create an atmosphere in which thinking, creativity, and learning flow from persistent, yet thoughtfully measured encouragement. My writing and communication skills reflect a broad understanding of grammar, word usage, and topical development. As a trained pianist, guitarist and musician, I am also a qualified and experienced private instructor, focusing on most musical styles, particularly jazz, classical, and rock and roll. My reputation is one of dependability and professionalism.
