About Karisa

I am a Bloomington, Indiana-based music and ESL teacher. I hold a master of music degree from Westminster Choir College of Rider University (Princeton, NJ), and am currently finishing a doctorate in music from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I have my teaching license and have experience teaching music and ESL domestically and internationally in China.

My love of teaching is evident in my patience with students of all different backgrounds. I pride myself on being able to present new material to students in easily digestible ways based on individual student learning styles. In tutoring sessions, I want my students to be challenged, but also feel successful. I also enjoy helping students to develop skills to set up structured study goals.

I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup sessions. I can meet with you at a local library, in your home, or on one of the local university campuses.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or to set up your first session!

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.

General Music

I have a Bachelor of Music Education from Cedarville University (2008). With this, I received an Ohio K-12 Music Teaching License. Additionally, I have a Master's in Voice Pedagogy and Performance from Westminster Choir College of Rider University (2013). I am currently finishing a doctorate in music (voice) from Indiana University with a minor in Music History and Literature (expected completion May 2017). I have tutored Music Theory at the undergraduate/graduate level. I have taught private voice and piano lessons for over 5 years. I also taught music, literature, and drama courses internationally in Beijing from 2008-2011.
