Learning is perhaps one of the most profound endeavors we can experience, and, after over 15 years of teaching students from ages 5 to 60, I have discovered that mentoring students is no less profound an experience. I have an AA in Humanities and Music from SBCC, a Bachelor's in Composition, a Master's in Ethnomusicology, and finishing my PhD in Ethnomusicology at UCSB.
As you can see by my photo I am also a musician. As an artist, I have the natural ability to approach problem-solving and intellectual pursuits creatively and passionately. In other words, I am gifted at being able to teach a given subject in myriad ways, individually crafting the material to benefit each student's learning style. Most importantly, my playful nature fosters a fun and energizing learning environment.
I have been teaching college-level students (UCSB and Ventura College) and elementary & middle school students for over 10 years. I am currently tutoring several students in music, language, and test preparations. I look forward to meeting you and discussing the exciting prospects of your future endeavors.
