About Shayla

In high school, I tutored Introductory Chemistry classes and taught piano lessons on a regular basis. By college, I continued to teach piano lessons and tutored for early Music Theory courses. Also, I mentored incoming college students by helping them transition into life on campus. I occasionally helped the students with organizational skills (note taking, studying, test taking), time management skills, and any other academic help I could offer. Lastly, I was a conversation partner with foreign exchange students to help them practice their English skills.

As a Graduate student, I have been a Teacher's Assistant for the past year. I taught mainly music courses (Korean Pop Music, World Music Asia and Oceania, and World Music Africa). I held office hours and taught students who were having difficulties in the class. I had many English as a second language students as well and worked with them in essay writing, composition skills, and academic integrity (citation, bibliography, formatting).

Also, I have been teaching private music students for the past year in piano, violin, and viola. My students' comprehension of material should be the first priority, so I strive to be flexible and change my lesson plans according to the students' needs. I am confident that I know my material and would be able to teach my students to know the material as well. I try to use different tactics depending on the student and gauge whether or not the student is responding to my methods. I am still learning, but I greatly appreciate any chance I have to expand someone else's knowledge and my own.

I am an extremely reliable person. I can keep appointments and fulfill commitments to parents and my students. This past academic year I performed in concerts and fulfilled my obligations as a performer to practice ahead of time, show up for rehearsals, and perform when I was needed. Also, I taught class "sections" from 9-11 every Friday morning, which meant I had to wake up in time to take a shuttle to campus, unlock the classroom, and set up my teaching materials (front desk, computer, projector, and whiteboard) for class. Then, I had office hours two hours after that (9am until 1pm). I made additional appointments with students who could not attend my office hours. I never had a complaint from my supervisor or students about my lack of punctuality or professionalism.
