I speak Thai and can teach beginner Thai! I studied Spanish for two years in college so I can speak and read at an elementary level.

I have experience as a tutor of English, piano/voice, psychology, and religious studies. I have worked with individuals in private tutoring and taught in classroom settings. I speak Thai and can teach beginner Thai! I studied Spanish for two years in college so I can speak and read at an elementary level.

I enjoy working with people of all ages but have special expertise in working with those who are young adult and adult learners. I have experience as a teacher in the USA and, having lived in Thailand for four years, in an overseas setting. Because I have traveled to many countries, I appreciate the culture, language, education and religious traditions of people from around the world. I believe this makes me a "better" tutor of the subjects I like to teach.

As a tutor, it is important for me to listen and understand the strengths and weaknesses identified by students and help them attain their stated goals for competency.

She's the best!

Ann is open, communicative, and knowledgeable. She patiently explained music theory while also helping me to find my range, my notes, some confidence, so much more. I'm learning quickly because she learned quickly what I needed and knows how to get me there. Don't miss an opportunity to learn from her!
