Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a certificate in teaching English to speakers of other languages (CTESOL) from Transworld Schools in San Francisco, CA. I feel confident teaching English.

Oboe

I've been playing the oboe for many years.
I've in a variety of ensembles, such as the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony, the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, the Berkeley Bach cantata Group, Prometheus Symphony, and this coming month the Berkeley Symphony. I've participated for a few years in the Humboldt Chamber Music Workshop, the CALCAP Chamber Music Workshop, and the Chamber Musicians of Northern California Chamber Workshops. I received instruction from teachers from San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. I feel confident teaching beginning to intermediate oboe and English horn students.
