About Erin

As a young working professional, I was looking for a new challenge and tutoring provides that challenge. I am an academic at heart. I love learning and loved school. I try to help those I tutor develop that same love for learning.

I have a diverse background and cross-sector experience which lend a unique perspective. I was able to spend a year and a half in Hong Kong, expanding my world view and language skills. My undergraduate degree is in Geography and Asian studies. I worked as an English teacher in Taiwan, which was a wonderful cultural experience and also solidified my interest in teaching/tutoring. After returning to my hometown and working in the private sector for a few years, I decided to pursue my passion for helping others and work in the public sector. In order to facilitate this, I obtained a Master's Degree in Public Administration, which included the study of government, economics, and finance. I've always had a knack for numbers, so this allowed me to use those skills for good purposes.

In addition, I am a life-long musician and love to teach piano, flute, and voice.

I also speak Cantonese and studied Mandarin in college. I would be happy to help beginning to early intermediate Chinese students learn!

Lastly, I also have quite a bit of experience in career/resume counseling and would be happy to assist in this area.

I'm excited to meet you and learn together!

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.

Chinese

I lived and worked in Hong Kong for a year and a half, during which time I became fluent in spoken Cantonese. I also took four semesters of Mandarin in college, after which I lived in Taiwan for 6 months. I also completed a 7 week study abroad in mainland China. I would feel comfortable tutoring beginning to early intermediate Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin).

Flute

I have been playing flute since the 5th grade. I was a first chair soloist throughout middle school, high school, and college. I participated in honor bands and was awarded second place at state solo competition. I took private lessons all through high school and two years in college. I tutored fellow flutists in high school. I would feel comfortable tutoring/teaching beginning to intermediate level flutists.

Piano

I have been playing piano for over 20 years. I have played as a soloist and as also an accompanist for numerous vocal and instrumental soloists, as well as for choirs (too many to count!).

I am most familiar with the Suzuki method, although I would be happy to delve into other methods if the student is more familiar with something else.

Sewing

I have been sewing since the age of ten. I have completed numerous projects in clothing construction, quilting, and home decor. I am familiar with machine and hand sewing techniques, as well as decorative embroidery. I would be happy to provide samples of my work before tutoring.

Social Studies

My undergraduate degree was Geography, which essentially encompass many aspects of social studies. Social studies is a combination of social sciences, such as history, philosophy, government, etc. combined with humanities. I have studies all of these subjects in depth, both for four years in my undergraduate degree and for 2 years as a Master of Public Administration student. I have a deep knowledge and understanding of this field.

I also worked as a teaching assistant in the geography program for a year, helping students understand how all of these various subjects come together to influence human situations and behavior.
