I found my knack for tutoring when I was in grade school assisting fellow students with their assignments, as I was always the first one done, and the teacher asked me to use the rest of the time to help my classmates. I was best at math and science, and I particularly enjoyed tutoring math. I attended the Mass Academy of Math and Science, a high school for gifted students.
After years of being a star violin student, my violin teacher asked me to be her teacher's aide at the children's group classes. As she grew older and wanted to spend more time with her family, she sent some of her beginner students to me. I managed a very successful violin teaching business for myself, teaching up to 15 students each week after school. I also taught my own set of group lessons of young students to play for Nursing Homes. I started a chamber group of my best students for special performances at local town fairs.
In college I took up ballroom dancing, and quickly rose to the top levels. I was captain of my ballroom dance team and taught my teammates between our coaching lessons. After college I taught a few ballroom classes here and there at different studios and worked with two other collegiate ballroom dance teams. I have taught social dancers, wedding couples, and competitive dancesport athletes. I am great at choreographing wedding dances to any song of your choice. I have worked with many friends as they prepared for their wedding day.
I have been tutoring math, science, and English for over 5 years now and my students have all vastly improved their grades and understanding of the material in the subjects I have worked with them on. I vary my teaching style to the student's learning style and help them to grasp a solid foundation in understanding the subject, not just learn to pass a test. I focus on building life learning skills, and good study habits so that the student can carry those values to their other school subjects and activities.
I have taught violin and dance lessons for over 10 years. My violin students place top in their district, passing all top auditions. My ballroom students place high at competitions. My social dance and wedding students report greater ease of social ability and happiness from a beautiful unforgettable first dance at their wedding.
I teach most of my violin lessons on the weekends, dance lessons on evenings and weekends, and tutoring school subjects afternoons and early evenings.
