As a tutor with more than 20 years of experience, I'm ready to meet your needs by building on what you know. I understand that learning styles come in many varieties, and it's important to provide information in a way that you take in information. I thrive on seeing the light bulb go on in students' minds, and I thoroughly enjoy motivation through encouragement.
I have a B.S. degree in music education from the University of Tennessee and have taught private music lessons for 20+ years. With 15 years of experience as a freelance writer, editor and proofreader, I'm also qualified to teach writing, spelling, grammar, proofreading and vocabulary. I've taught World Literature, Writing and Art for three years at a tutorial academy and have studied privately with an accomplished drawing and painting teacher. As a community volunteer and paid contractor, I have experience in public speaking, graphic design and art curating with the Tennessee Writers Alliance, The Artist's Way and the City Hall Art Committee.
Just as I'm committed to meeting your unique needs, I expect you to come to each session prepared. This gives us the greatest chance for success. If you are looking for a someone to partner with you in your educational pursuits, I'm the tutor for you!
