Bio

I'm Niko, and I'm currently a college student pursing my B.S. in Elementary Education. I have a passion for teaching and tutoring. I graduated summa cum laude in my high school class and was a part of the National Honors Society. I’m currently a part of the Phi Theta Kappa college honors society.

I'm Niko, and I'm currently a college student pursing my B.S. in Elementary Education. I have a passion for teaching and tutoring. I graduated summa cum laude in my high school class and was a part of the National Honors Society. I’m currently a part of the Phi Theta Kappa college honors society.

Music has always been a major part of my life. I am a pianist and organist and have been playing for over 10 years. I studied piano and organ from a Juilliard-trained musician, and I also have over 4 years experience teaching piano lessons to people of all ages. I’m currently the organist at my church, and I often serve as an accompanist for singers at events. In addition, I have a passion for music theory and music history, and I am proud to have scored a 5 on the AP Music Theory exam.

In addition to music, I love helping elementary students with their assignments in reading, math, science, and social studies. I have worked as a tutor at a tutoring center and know what it takes for students to grasp concepts and succeed in their studies. Furthermore, I have experience in developing personalized learning pathways for all my students so their unique needs are at the forefront of all my tutoring sessions.

My goal is to make all my tutoring sessions fun, engaging, and enjoyable for the student. I use a variety of teaching methods and am sensitive to the different learning modes such as visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc. I am very passionate about the subjects I teach, so I might get very excited and animated when I teach (maybe it's a musician thing!), and I am patient and always willing to answer as many questions you have during the sessions.

Please feel free to contact me to schedule a session. I will do my best to respond to you as quickly as possible. I look forward to working with you and helping you succeed!

Ear Training,

Ear Training

One of the elements of music theory that I teach in all my piano classes is ear training, which is identifying the type and quality of an interval or chord without looking at the music or piano - just your ears. This invaluable skill is important to build when learning the piano, as it can help the learner with improvisation and sight reading. I have taught this skill in all my piano classes and did advanced ear training in AP Music Theory.

When I took AP Music Theory, we practiced lots of sight singing, which is a valuable skill to have that will build sight reading skills in music. I have also taught this concept to my advanced piano students, and they have found this to help them in their piano reading studies.

Knowledgeable and methodical

Niko spent time to understand what Anna already knows and developed lesson plan to build on that. Looking forward to subsequent lessons. He also offered useful suggestions on how Anna can be comfortable with the lessons.
