Hello! Bonjour!

My name is Dawn, and I am thrilled to be your next tutor!

I have tutored French and music globally for three years and have enjoyed every moment of it.

As a child I grew up across the United States and Belgium, picking up French as my second language. I went on to study French and Arabic in college, tutoring students of all levels and ages. In addition, I taught a remedial French course for beginners to intermediates at GWU last spring, targeting college students and returning professionals in need of linguistic "boot-camp."

My career as a singer/songwriter has taken me to national competitions and performances from the Kennedy Center to Europe. I appreciate sharing my passion for vocal and piano aptitude with beginners in particular, and those who are anxious to unleash the artist within!

In addition, I offer guidance and tutoring in writing, editing, and English language skills.

In my other life, I am an almost-famous singer-songwriter, rapidly budding author, and very lucky life/spiritual coach.

If you have any questions or would like to talk about your specific needs, please feel free to message me. I believe that every individual has their own style and pace in learning; the key is target your learning goals and discover the path that works for you!

Looking forward to our future meeting!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ballet

I privately tutored in ballet under the direction of members of NYC Ballet and the American Ballet Theater for five years, while graduating under Lisa Avery in 2006.

I currently continue to train with the Washington Ballet School, run by the Washington Ballet Company.

Piano

I am a singer-songwriter, and the piano is my main instrument. I have studied the piano for 19 years now, and have taught students (typically beginners to intermediate) from ages 5-60!

Voice (Music)

I have trained as a singer for 10 years. As a mezzo-soprano, I have won several state-wide awards for vocal performance, performed at the Kennedy Center and around theaters in the DC metro area and Europe. I am now in the early stages of developing my own singer-songwriter career!
