About Ayvee

If you need help with Reading, Writing, and Music, including Reading Comprehension, Academic Writing, Creative Writing, or Modern Songwriting and Composition, then I am the tutor for you! With five years of experience in tutoring, I've had the opportunity to develop my tutoring style to accommodate the needs of each individual student. My professional background in writing is extensive; I have experience as a published author, professional screenwriter, creative writer, and songwriter for television (my work has garnered over 5 million plays on network television). I also possess formal education in both Audio Engineering and Music. This foundation allows me to share valuable information with students that will enrich their skills and aide in achieving their goals. Recently, I relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and am looking forward to connecting and creating new relationships with students.

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.

Ballet

I am a ballet instructor with over six years of experience teaching children and teen ballet classes, as well as private lessons geared towards a dancer's individual development . My professional clients include Genentech, The City of Menlo Park and the YMCA. I teach the Balanchine method.

Composition (Music)

I am a professional composer, songwriter, singer, and music producer. While obtaining my Protools certification, I worked as a teacher aide for music composition classes. I worked closely with students in analog and digital composition, music theory, midi production and sequencing. I created Protools presentations that were given in class and held office hours to meet with students one on one to help them with their individual questions/concerns.

Fitness

I am a certified Zumba instructor, yoga, and dance instructor with over ten years of experience. I currently teach several private lessons for dance-based fitness throughout the Bay Area. My knowledge of dance includes but is not limited to: ballet, jazz, modern, belly dance, Zumba, and hip hop.

Songwriting

As a professional songwriter, I possess the skills to help students develop their own voice on paper. My songwriting lesson plan consists of assessing the student's capabilities and creating an individual approach to address their strengths and weaknesses. My methods include exercises in freeform writing, commercial songwriting, hook analysis, re-writing/editing, genre identification, and melody/harmony development.

Voice (Music)

I am a vocal tutor and professional vocalist with over ten years experience working with students to develop their abilities. My tutoring lessons consist of vocal warm ups/exercises, proper range identification, basic music theory, sight-reading, tone matching, song selection, song rehearsal, and voice recording techniques.

Very patient and excellent pronuntiations of professional words — Ayvee's tutoring sessions were extremely pleasant and enjoyable. Her dedication and great sense of humor made her a perfect teacher for me. If you are looking for someone to go the extra mile, be flexible, and create a positive environment for you, then Ayvee is the one you want. She has created confidence in right pronunciation of technical words after very few sessions. Thanks a lot! ...
