As a student, the subject that I have come to identify myself with is music. I played piano for twelve years, been involved in band including Wind Symphony, Marching Band and the choir like Sunrise Singers and Madrigal Singers at the high school level. There, I also took leadership roles taking over as Section Leader for the Frontline (Pit) in Marching Band, Band Librarian, and Section Leader for the Soprano Section in Choir. In piano, I won various awards at many music competitions. Once I started college, I put music aside for a while because I was focusing on my science major. However, it never left me, it became a part of me, embedded in my soul. When I didn't play the piano, I sang. Once I graduated college, it wasn't hard for me to get back into piano. Music is my life, my passion. I hope to use this opportunity and help enhance students' love for music. For a couple years, I have taught piano lessons to several children, as well as my own sisters. They say that what you love doing you will be most successful at. I really found that in playing music and becoming one with it. I have also done a lot with sight reading, sight singing, and music theory. In fact, I have taken AP Music Theory in high school and excelled in the class. It's a hard class, but with music, I am able to learn and grasp very quickly.
I can help students with piano, music theory, reading music, sight reading, sight singing, voice, and basically any musical experience they need. I want to see this as an opportunity to enhance the students' love and appreciation for music. I hope I can get the chance to help them, because seeing their smile and satisfaction on their face is what I call "music to my ears."
For academic subjects, I am very thorough in prealgebra and algebra 1. I really enjoyed doing algebra problems more than any other type of math problem, and I have excelled in my algebra classes throughout my schooling. It's really my favorite math subject.
When I was in middle school and high school, my peers recognized me as a spelling champ. In fact, I really was one at the time. I entered Spelling Bees and even advanced to State Level for the Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee in 2003.
They say you can't grasp something fully unless you are able to teach it to someone. I hope to have an opportunity to help someone enhance their knowledge on a subject of interest. It means a lot to me when I see them understand it, to see their satisfaction that they mastered the topic. I promise you will get nothing short of excellent if you give the chance to help.
