Are you a math
ace who struggles with the nuances of writing
comprehension? Could you use help bolstering your grades in English
Arts classes? Do you intend to pursue a reading and writing intensive career after you graduate? Is English your second language? If so, as a tutor with a strong English specialization, I can help you!
I earned my associate of science in recording arts from Full Sail; my associate of arts from the Honors Institute at Hillsborough Community College, where I earned a prestigious Outstanding Delegate award at the Harvard National Model United Nations; and my bachelor of arts in English literature
, magna cum laude, from the University of South Florida, where I was invited to participate in two English Honors Seminars, completed an honors thesis in literature, and made the dean's list. I also worked at Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions as an SAT
instructor/tutor and an ESL
(English as a Second Language
Reading and writing are staples of nearly every field of study. Improving your ability to write and to read critically will inevitably improve your grades all-around. I can help students understand and analyze assigned literature, improve their book reports, essays, and writing assignments, boost their PSAT/SAT verbal
reasoning and writing scores, or simply teach them vocabulary
and the rules of grammar
, usage, and style. I will work with students and their parents to design effective and engaging curricula that are based on the needs of the student.
While I earned my degrees, I worked extensively as a recording engineer and as a professional musician. I have played on or engineered albums by members of Porcupine Tree, Feeder, and Luna Sea for labels like King Records (Japan) and Equal Vision. If you want to learn to play bass guitar
, brush up on your theory and technique, or improve your ear, I can help you too! My method of teaching bass is simple and effective. I teach some scales, theory, and technique exercises, but I stress that these means serve an end: teaching you the songs and styles you want to learn to play.
I am available to tutor throughout the NYC Metro area, and my schedule is flexible. I hope to work with you!
