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.

Greek

As a part of my BA degree in Classics and my MA degree in Ancient Languages, I have had to study Ancient Greek to an advanced level. I am currently in a Ph.D. program focusing on Ancient Greek. I have also taught Beginning Greek online for two years with Landry Academy and am currently leading a Greek reading group that meets once a week online.

Piano

I have been a private music teacher for eight years, working with students from 4 years old through adults. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Rutgers University and studied under Susan Starr (Rutgers University), Eleanor Sokoloff (Curtis Institute of Music), Marian Zarzeczna (Westminster Choir College), and Yun-Yun Feng (NJMTA). I also hold a Diploma in Piano Performance from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).

Additionally, I am a church musician and keyboardist. I have been the pianist in both traditional and contemporary church services for over 10 years. I have also been invited to teach keyboard accompaniment and improvisation workshops for church musicians.

I have also worked as a ballet accompanist for the Princeton Ballet School and Rutgers University's Dance Department.

My students have passed the ABRSM music theory and piano exams up to the highest level (grade 8).
