My name is Victoria and I am currently working toward my Ph.D at Brandeis University in music composition. My teaching experience includes musicianship (sight-singing, rhythmic studies, dictation, etc.) and orchestration (helping students with instrumental arrangements of piano pieces and students' original compositions).

I attended the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College of the City University of New York for my undergraduate degree, during which I was a music major studying piano, voice and composition. While I focused on music, I also took many classes in other disciplines, particularly literature, from Dante to James Joyce to Samuel Beckett. I graduated magna cum laude, having participated in both the Thomas Hunter Honors Program and the Macaulay Honors College, in addition to the honors track in my major. I worked as a peer tutor for Hunter College's Writing Center, and while I was there, I gained a lot of experience tutoring students of all backgrounds, ages and levels of writing ability and English fluency. This was absolutely the highlight of my undergraduate years, for I learned how to effectively communicate with very different types of people in a genuine and respectful way.

My interest in writing and in education began when I was in high school. I attended Hunter College High School in New York City, which has a very rigorous writing-based curriculum. I vividly remember my first introduction to writing a research paper in the 7th grade, and I have continued to build on what I learned then. I believe that a strong foundation in writing and reading skills is essential to anyone's education and I enjoy working with students to build that foundation.
