I graduated on the Dean's Honor Roll from the University of Northern Colorado, class of '09, with a B.A. in English Language and Literature and a minor in Vocal Performance.

Since then, I have taught hundreds of students in classroom, small-group, and one-on-one settings. As an organizer of AmeriCorps' Energy Service Corps from 2010-2011, I spoke in lecture halls to recruit college students whom I then personally trained to conduct classroom presentations for local K-12 students. Together we reached over a thousand kids, some of whose parents contacted us afterward saying how much fun their children had had learning about smart energy usage. In 2012, The Princeton Review gave me the opportunity to help six high school students beat the ACT. The absolute proudest moment (and the biggest surprise) of my career so far came when one of these students ran to me from across a dance floor and threw her arms around my neck, saying she'd scored a 32!

As a multidisciplinary learner, I believe adamantly in the educational power of the arts, and of the question "why." It's a question I ask my students often, because reciting a correct answer isn't nearly as useful - or rewarding - as being able to place information in a context. Whether solving for x or close-reading a sonnet, I'm here to help you practice the art of explaining yourself, connecting the dots and finding your own best work. Because you can do it.

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.

General Music

I played violin throughout junior high and high school, and majored in vocal performance for two years while at the University of Northern Colorado. I have participated in numerous performing ensembles over the past decade. I have also completed coursework in music history, sight singing, and music theory.

Sight Singing

I've completed undergraduate-level coursework in aural skills at the University of Northern Colorado. I have also participated in multiple ensembles whose auditions included a sight-reading component. I help others sight-read by practicing rhythmic figures first, then moving on to melody. (Though I was taught to sing numbers in place of solfege, I prefer the latter for its inclusion of chromatics.)

Hi, Lori, When you're working with mixed numbers, you always want to make sure your fractions play nicely together. A fraction is just a proportion, meaning it can be scaled up or scaled down. To scale 5/6 and 4/15 so they'll be easily compatible with each other, you need to find a common...
