About Anne

Hello future students and friends! My name is Anne. My passion is to teach and see my students grow and succeed. My educational background is broad as I have two bachelor degrees, the first being in Music Education with a major in piano, a minor in voice, composition, and choir and band instrumental instruction, and a second degree in General Education K-8 all subject matter. My teaching experience includes private tutoring, public classroom Elementary and Middle School, Private school Music Education K -12 choir, band and general music, and private lesson for all musical beginner instruments. I did include teaching teenagers and foreign adults driving lessons to pass their tests as well, which was fun and adventurous. My teaching background includes many cultures; American, Native American, Pakistani, Indian, Arabic, Israeli, Jamaican, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Chinese, African, Spanish and Puerto rican. I have worked in rural and inner-city conditions and understand the needs which can vary according to State mandates and curriculum. I love helping students learn how to study, creating good habits and the development of reading and writing as it is essential to learning all subjects.

Musical Favorites: Piano/Voice, Composition, conducting and beginner band instruments flute, trumpet and added guitar.

General Education Favorites: Middle School 6-8: Science, ELA, Reading and Writing, public speaking and intonation, Geography, Geology, Math and Earth Sciences. Elementary: All subject K-5th. I am very good at proof reading college and graduate research papers and can help High School students prepare for this as well.

In addition I am an artist, poet and songwriter and can teach this as well.

Teaching is fun and I believe that it should be taylored to each individual. Yes we must teach to a test for state regulation but it is not how we learn as individuals. I personally believe heaven meant us to "not exist to live but Live to Exist." This means that we must have creativity and personal fulfillment in learning.

If parents want their child to be ready for Kindergarten I can help with that too.

I do not discourage group lessons as children learn well together.

I look forward to meeting with you and serving you.

Sincerely,

Anne

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.

Composition (Music)

Welcome, students who desire to write their own music. Composition is first learned through theory. Once this is gained students can begin to learn style and instrumentation. I have a Music Degree from the University of Maine in Orono and have been teaching piano,voice and score writing/transposing since 1993. Styles range from Classical to Modern. I teach theory and composition. Many of my students have performed their own works. I also teach worship music, International House of Prayer soaking style. Students can easily learn chords and begin to compose less traditional styles. I am learning to use Skype to teach piano and voice as well. If you are interested please feel free to contact me.

Piano

Hello! Piano is my main instrument and my love since the age of four. I would love to take on students for piano and voice as I feel most voice students need to professionally know piano to save money and to better sing with their accompanists.

Many of my students have performed their own works. I also teach worship music, International House of Prayer soaking style.
