To give you a little background, I recently graduated from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI., a small liberal arts college, with a major in political science and a minor in German. Since graduation I've extensively studied economics, finance, and monetary policy and am pursuing master's degrees on economics and political science next fall. In college I focused on American history and politics, constitutional law, and rhetoric, though I also studied international relations, comparative politics, and was a model UN delegate. I also spent a semester in Freiburg, Germany studying the development and governance of the European Union. In college I wrote many, many, many 10-12 page essays as well as a 35 page independent study on rhetoric (and got A's on all of them), so I can definitely offer essay help all the way from conception to idea organization to proofreading.
I'm also a musician. I actually started out in the conservatory as a bass performance major and played in various jazz ensembles and the wind ensemble, but eventually the social sciences won out over spending 10 hours a day in a 10' x 10' basement practice room. Before college I played bass in the MA jazz band, orchestra, wind ensemble, and the Woodside and Foothill jazz bands. I played percussion in the Woodside marching band and drums with the First Congregational Church, and had taken guitar lessons at Gelb for a few years. I teach all levels of bass, upright and electric, and beginning guitar and drums. I teach composition, reading and sight-reading, improv, and bow technique. Styles in include jazz (be-bop, big band, Latin), rock, funk, blues, and flamenco.
I love to teach and hope one day to become a teacher or professor, so if I seem like the right person, then let's get started!
