I possess a lifelong background in tutoring math, reading and writing, and music. I also hold degrees in journalism, political science, and piano/film scoring. I would bring expertise, patience, and dedication to my students.
My tutoring experience started all the way back in the 3rd grade, when a teacher recognized that I had a sharp acumen and a patient, gentle nature that could help a struggling kindergarten student learn her alphabet. During my grade school years, I tutored peers in math, both privately and in school.
Since then, I have taught beginner to intermediate piano to children and been a tutor for English as a Second Language students. With the latter, I focused on verbal, writing, and reading skills.
My education and professional experience has prepared me well to teach these subjects. Exercising my writing skills and musicianship, I worked as an editorial assistant and proofreader at an educational music book publisher. I corrected grammatical and music notation errors in dozens of manuscripts. I also served as the editor for a highly anticipated, instructional jazz piano book. Additionally, I have always excelled in mathematics, completing college-level coursework and scoring very high on my SATs.
Majoring in political science as an undergraduate, I also received a great education in politics, history, and economics. I would love to tutor students in these subjects as well.
