I hold a bachelor's degree, plus a teaching credential and maintained a 3.89 GPA. And I have 6 years' experience tutoring. My experience ranges from elementary homework help to test-prep for ISEE and includes SAT preparation.

I have recently relocated here, and would love to help you achieve your education goal. I realize every student is unique and a variety of skills and approaches are needed to suit a student's learning style and motivation. I have successfully helped students from a great variety of backgrounds prepare for test success, and ace school projects.

I get students to focus on main ideas, points of argumentation, and logic, as well as nuance, tone, and style. Sharpening study skills is a key to success. Study skills success depends on being able to isolate the most important and to prioritize all minor points, making the optimum use of time. This is a process I can teach. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need to start studying. An early start and a strategy for success pays off!

Music History

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree from California State University, Fullerton. In addition I have taught piano privately using pedagogical methods which strictly delineate period and style differences between periods: Early Music, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary. I teach these different interpretations sensitive to composers of the appropriate era frequently to piano students of adult, college-age and to children already. I am additionally a member of a local recorder group the last two years, through which I play tenor recorder and I benefit from having guest conductors and workshops conducted by experts in various eras of very Early Music discuss stylistic interpretation and biography of composers. These are people who hold Masters' and Doctorates' in various specific eras of early music ranging from from the 11th century to the Renaissance and Venetian Baroque.
