About Cleo

I graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. I taught private piano in my home before becoming a librarian. I took a class in piano pedagogy at our local junior college.

I have worked as a substitute teacher from kindergarten to high school. My first background is in music and English. For one year, I taught English composition to college freshmen. After becoming a librarian, I worked in public libraries, a hospital, and a major research medical university. In order to receive tenure, I published in peer reviewed journals and have authored several book chapters. I ran teaching sessions for both medical residents and medical faculty.

I look on tutoring as a way to spend one on one time with someone who wishes to learn. Together, we can become a team and explore a subject of interest or learn a new skill. Learning and exploring are so exciting and empowering. I love to be a part of it.

I have published in peer reviewed journals and authored chapters in published books. I am an old fashioned lover of grammar. I even love diagramming. I taught English in a high school. My undergraduate major at Northwestern University was music education.

I look forward to meeting you, getting to know you, and exploring the exciting experience of learning together.

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.

Bible Studies

I am a Greek Orthodox Christian from birth. I read and study the Bible daily and am also developing familiarity with the writings of the Church Fathers and Mothers. The Orthodox services are all based on the Bible, as is the Church calendar. I am currently reading Charles Stanley's Life Principles Daily Bible, Unlocking the Bible Omnibus by David Pawson, Know Your Bible, Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado, and By Way of the Desert by Bangley. I attended a Lutheran grade school from kindergarten to sixth grade and a Roman Catholic high school. I taught for six years at a Catholic high school.

Piano

I graduated from Northwestern University with a B.Mus.Ed. I taught private piano in my home before becoming a librarian. I took a class in piano pedagogy at our local junior college.
