I am an enthusiastic English and Music graduate (BA in Piano Performance and English Literature) well-equipped to help students grow as lifelong learners. I have 10+ years experience tutoring (subjects ranging from math, literature, writing, music, and science) and 6+ years teaching experience (choral at the high school and college level). I am currently enrolled in Northwestern's Bienen School of Music for a Master of Music Degree in Music Theory & Cognition to be conferred in June 2020.

I believe that tutoring is a chance to create meaningful connections and bond over learning material.

I have earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, experience as a writing consultant, and I am a published author who wrote a piece that appeared in High Point University's journal, Innovation: Journal of Creative and Scholarly Works.

I have earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music: Piano. And I have 6+ years music theory tutor experience, 18+ years music practice experience.

Struggling in literature or music classes? Having trouble writing your thoughts on paper? Just want to learn more about these subjects? Contact me any time to schedule meetings with me. I look forward to meeting with you.

History

Music History

Music History

Part of the requirement of any music degree is a vast knowledge of music history. This process is evidenced in numerous program notes for concerts as well as in my own experience as a general music tutor. Additionally, I am pursuing a Master of Music degree in Music Theory and Cognition, which considers all ways in which we experience music, which includes a knowledge of music history and how theory worked throughout history.
