My teaching philosophy is that deep learning is the only way for students to achieve success both in their school subjects and in life. I am committed to your child's success and will do all in my power, using active learning techniques, to help your child reach their full potential. With me as their tutor, you can be confident that I have your child's best interests at heart.

I have two masters degrees, one in History and the other in Historic Preservation, both of which heavily emphasized reading and writing, but I am also an accomplished vocalist with 5 years experience in teaching music, including instruction in playing the piano. For the last year I've been taking education classes to improve my teaching skills. I would like to focus on tutoring because of the relationship and trust that comes from a one-on-one setting, as well as the opportunity to see personally how a student is developing.

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.

I hold a bachelors degree in history, a masters of science degree in historic preservation, and a masters of arts degree in history with a concentration in American History. I was also a graduate assistant through four semesters of American History courses at the University of Windsor.

I've been reading music, singing and playing the piano for 32 years. I have a Music Minor from my bachelor's degree. I've sung in numerous choirs in Detroit and Ann Arbor, and I've been teaching music to a bell choir (children and adults) and chancel choir (adults) at church for the past 5 years.
