I have a diverse background in arts and the humanities. I have completed graduate work in music theory and piano performance (Temple University). Currently, I am pursuing another graduate degree in theology and philosophy (Princeton Theological Seminary). I have taught music theory, aural skills, and piano improvisation at the college level (Cairn University). Additionally, I serve as a liturgist and music director at a local church in Newtown, PA. I also work professionally as an accompanist, most notably with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
As a tutor, I value a pedagogical approach that allows for students to think creatively and critically. I am convinced that a student best understands a subject when they draw connections to other related subjects. Consequently, I take an interdisciplinary approach to teaching. I also recognize that students may have different learning styles. I strive to work together with the student in order to shape a learning environment that corresponds well to their strengths.
