I draw from academic, experiential, and self-discovered sources for my education. My Bachelor's degree in English (minor in Psychology) is supplemented by over a decade as a professional writer/musician/producer. Working in this field has taught me how to develop my own skills and innate abilities. The knowledge that I've gained through this process has become a core part of the instruction I utilize for my students. My teaching style is an adapted Autodidactic method I've designed primarily through teaching myself how to: write poetry, play piano, dj, and compose songs. I have extensive tutoring experience, instructing Kindergartners through Adults in a variety of subjects including: Writing, ESL, Reading, Literature, Vocabulary, Piano, Music Software, Drums, Music History, Music Theory, Chess, Psychology, and Philosophy. My goal is to ignite students' passion for learning by awakening their curiosity. Teaching is transmitting your love of the subject to student.
