I graduated from the University of Oregon with degrees in English, Journalism, and General Music. I took a training course to become an English literature tutor and also worked as a reader/grader for multiple professors and classes. I've helped students through everything from choosing a topic to organization to looking over the final copy. I have read and graded hundreds of essays and tests so I know what teachers are looking for. I love English lit and can make it fun even for those who usually don't enjoy reading and writing.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Oboe

I recently completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in General Music with a focus on Oboe Performance. I have experience teaching beginning and intermediate oboe students. As a teacher I can help with reeds/instrument information, sound quality, technical challenges, music theory, sight-reading, and how to fit within an ensemble. I love playing oboe and can make it fun instead of frustrating, even though oboe is a difficult instrument to learn.

Piano

I took piano lessons for ten years and went through the Syllabus program, teaching me theory as well as performance. I have a degree in music which included continuing practicing the theory concepts we learned on the piano. I have experience teaching piano lessons to young students, including theory concepts and technical skills.
