I am by profession a classical cellist, a cello instructor and an orchestral conductor. I am also a professional linguist and language teacher, and speak three languages fluently, having lived abroad and grown up in Europe. I was born in New York, and therefore am a native English speaker, though having a Danish mother I am bilingual and speak Danish equally fluently. I also am fluent in Italian.
I have taught languages for many years, and greatly enjoy working with language students. I emphasize understanding basic grammar so students can grasp the structure of how a language is put together. I also stress proper pronunciation, discussion in the foreign language, and reading and writing it as well.
I have taught in many different private schools in New York City, and I have endless experience and an extensive background in working with students of all ages and levels. If you are looking for someone to help you with your music and/or language skills let me try to help you gain the confidence you need.
