About Francesca

As someone who struggled in a few subjects as a kid (such as math), I know what it's like to feel frustrated or discouraged over homework, tests, and teachers who just did not teach. That is why it is important that students have access to tutors who are willing to be patient and take the time to make sure they truly understand the material. I want to be someone your students trust when they need help and it is my goal to empower them and give them confidence to succeed, no matter how long it takes. I can teach your student basic music, math, history, English (vocab, spelling, grammar, literature, essay writing, reading and note taking), and Spanish (first level vocabulary, pronunciation and conjugation).

I graduated with honors from Saint Mary's College of California in May 2013. My degree is in Business Administration.

I have played saxophone for 13 years and oboe for 8 years. When I was 20, I spent a summer self-employed teaching paid music lessons to grade school students as a Private Music Instructor for Alto Saxophone. I created lesson plans, assignments, and taught basic music theory to beginners (aged 9-20). I helped students with playing technique, range, scales, and dexterity. My oldest student needed help learning the march for marching band season and I helped him get into high school Jazz Band. I can teach students basic music theory, prepare them for jazz band and concert band, and teach lessons on saxophone and oboe.

Throughout high school and college I took honors or advanced English courses and received top marks, especially in essay writing. I can tutor your child in spelling, grammar, reading comprehension, literature and essay writing. I can assist them in finding suitable study techniques, such as the use of mnemonic devices. I can provide some test preparation, such as one-on-one quizzing or practice questions. I can also proofread student assignments and essays, and teach them how to formulate and express their ideas coherently and clearly. Finally, I can teach students how to locate errors in their own writing and make sure they have addressed the assignment prompts.

In high school I took three years of Spanish, and right now I am currently studying Italian.

I am passionate about developing skills in students and helping them succeed in school. Now that I have described my strengths and experience in the subjects above, I look forward to hearing from you and helping your student in any way that I can!

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.

Algebra 1

Took Algebra I in the 8th grade, received an "A".


I graduated Cum Laude from Saint Mary's College with a BS in Business Administration. My GPA was 3.7 and I received the honor of membership in the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society for Business, Management and Administration. I have taken courses such as International Business, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Strategic Management, Business Ethics, Business Communication and the Legal Environment of Business.

General Music

I have taken and passed AP music theory in high school, and have taken and received in "A" in college level basic music theory. I was self-employed in 2011 as a private music instructor to three students teaching alto saxophone and basic music theory. I have played in school chamber music classes, jazz bands, and concert bands.


I took guitar lessons from a professional guitarist for a year and performed in recitals. I have already taught basic music theory and lessons on saxophone. I can teach music theory (reading), fingerings on the fretboard, guitar tuning, and basic chords.


I took college-level marketing at Saint Mary's and received top marks. Immediately following graduation, I worked on a company's marketing plan by implementing social media promotion. I can tutor in the basic principles of marketing and draw from personal experience and real-world application.

Music Theory

I took and passed AP music theory in high school, received an "A" in college level basic music theory, and have 13 years playing experience in learning about theory. I also spent the summer of 2011 self-employed teaching three students basic music theory and gave saxophone lessons.


I have played oboe for eight years now in high school and college-level orchestras and chamber groups at Los Medanos College (Pittsburg, CA) and Saint Mary's College (Moraga, CA). In 2010, I was second chair oboist for Diablo Wind Symphony. I have recorded oboe solos and parts in professional CDs and have performed at funerals and honorary masses. At Saint Mary's I had at a year and a half of private lessons from a professional oboist who plays in the California Symphony. I can teach basic music theory, basic playing techniques, and basic reed adjustments.


I took lessons in oil painting for about three years, sold some of my work, and continue to paint on my own. I created market and showcase my work online on a popular social networking site. I can teach the basics of oil painting technique.


In the 8th grade my teacher had my class participate in the AR system to assess and improve our reading level. In one year I went from an 8th grade reading level to a college reading level, and have helped my friends improve their reading skills as well. Outside of class we often quizzed each other.


I have been playing saxophone for 13 years now. Alto saxophone is my main instrument, but I have played soprano, tenor and baritone sax in plays, jazz bands, and concert bands. In 2011 I was self-employed as a private music instructor to three students over the summer. I assessed them, prepared lessons, taught basic technique and music theory. In high school I was saxophone section leader, and received the award for "Outstanding Senior Jazz Musician".


I participated in my middle school spelling bee (I won the class competition), and I have passed all honors high school and college level English classes without having spelling errors in my papers or tests.
