I believe that whatever my students are striving to learn should be fun and engaging. I try to make great efforts to know my students well enough, so that I might connect their learning to their personal interests.

I also have experience with teaching special needs students, specifically students within the Autism Spectrum.

I have a BA from DePaul School of Music and a Masters in Education from National Louis University.
