Cal State Fullerton (Graduate Coursework)
I love teaching and believe that it is the educators' duty to assure that the material is passed on to the student in the most meaningful way. I have always taught private piano lessons to both children and adults. I have six years experience teaching all subject matter, specializing in English, math and history, at an elementary level in both public and private schools.
I have BA degrees in piano performance and in music education from USC and CalState Fullerton. I passed both the NTE and CBest tests in order to teach all elementary subject matter. I taught 7th grade for four years; 1-2 combination for one year and 4-5 combination for one year. I have always taught piano students privately. I am a writer and composer of music.
I am flexible as to scheduling tutoring sessions. I require a 24 hours notice of cancellation and will attempt to re-schedule with proper notification. There will be a free consultation in order to determine student needs and goals, proper location and time for sessions.

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.
