I've always had a love for learning. I graduated in the top 5% of my high-school graduating class and magna cum laude from Baylor University, so I know how much dedication and hard work can pay off. I enjoy helping others learn or understand something. I especially love seeing the look in someone's eyes when he or she finally understands something that has been difficult for him or her. Growing up, I helped classmates with understanding concepts with which they had problems.

I specialize in tutoring music subjects and English, but also tutor some math subjects. Because I have been a classical musician since I was 4 years old, I have 30 years of school and real-world experience with violin and viola performance, music theory, music history, ear training, and other music subjects. I've also always had a love for English, and my dad has always made it a point to make sure that I know proper grammar, vocabulary, etc. In college, I almost double-majored in music and math because I've never had a difficult time with math (except for Geometry). Every student has a different learning style -- some learn by doing, others by seeing, others by hearing, and others by a combination of these. I adapt my tutoring to best suit the student. I always like to challenge students without overwhelming them.

I am always looking to improve, so I appreciate any feedback you can give me. I will also provide parents (or students) with updates on the student's progress at least once every 6 weeks.

I tutor at the Sugar Land Library (on Eldridge) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I can also come to your home if it is more convenient for you, or if your sessions need to be on days other than Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rates may be higher depending on driving distance from my home to yours. I just ask that wherever we meet for the tutoring session is a quiet, comfortable place for studying. I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you succeed!

Ear Training

I have been a musician for most of my life. In high school and college, I had to take ear training courses, and I always got an A. As a violin and viola teacher, I have my students use ear training all the time in their lessons. As a performing musician, I have to use my ear training skills on a daily basis.

General Music

I have been a musician since I started playing violin when I was four years old. I've taught church choir classes, grou`p violin classes, and private violin and viola lessons. I know all sides of music -- from music theory and ear training, to music history, to playing stringed instruments, and more.

Music History

I have been a musician for over 30 years. During that time, I've taken many music history courses (high school and college) and always done very well. While taking those courses, I led study groups for my peers and helped them if they needed help.

Sight Singing

I have been a musician for most of my life. In high school and college, I had to take sight-singing courses, and I always got an A. As a violin and viola player who sight-reads music all the time, sight-singing comes very easily to me, and I enjoy teaching it.

Violin

I have been playing violin since I was four years old and viola since I was 10. Even though I turned my focus to viola when I was 12, I continued to play violin. I have both bachelor's and master's of music degrees in viola performance. I have taught violin and viola private lessons for over 10 years, and I perform regularly in orchestras in Lake Charles and Shreveport, Louisiana.
