Are you excited and ready to learn? Or are you frustrated and feel stuck in a difficult subject? I hope as your tutor I can help to establish specific goals tailored to whatever position you find yourself in and use effective learning strategies and tools to help you succeed.

My interests are numerous and constantly expanding! I went to a math and science high school, where I fell in love with math, but also discovered my interest in Chinese (Mandarin). I got my undergraduate degrees in Music and Chinese and then couldn't stay away from music, so I am pursuing a graduate degree in music performance. I still love subjects like math and Chinese and would love to use my talents in those areas to help others succeed!

I earned a bachelor's degree in music and a master's degree in music performance with a specification in viola performance. I love tutoring because it gives me a chance to watch other people flourish when given the right tools. It also gives me a chance to constantly work to improve myself as I find better ways to teach effectively and efficiently. My primary goals as a tutor are to identify areas of strengths to highlight and improve student confidence, as well as to pinpoint specific growth areas to allow the most efficient use of time. Overall, I believe that students learn best when they are motivated, inspired, and interested - if I can help to bring interest to a frustrating subject through the use of practical examples or examples related to a student's own interests, that will help launch us to a great point of growth! For example, in previous tutoring experiences with students struggling with mathematics, I have been able to find and/or write my own word problems that make use of their interests (whether those are marbles or outdoor toys for kids or specific fields such as chemistry, engineering, literature, etc.) to inspire them to get involved actively. I love watching students come to take ownership of their own learning and to see the spark in their eyes when it finally clicks!

Music History

I have completed the coursework required for 2 degrees in music, which required courses ranging from Baroque Music to Music Since 1945. I have done research projects on Chinese popular music, German Lutheran hymnody, and several other smaller scale projects about Arvo Part, Richard Wagner's famous operas, and JS Bach. I have also performed works by many of these composers.

She is great

My 8 years old really likes her and works hard for her. Mallory is a good teacher and very good with kids - positive, encouraging and gentle correction so kids would open to learn.

Li, 13 lessons with Mallory

Knowledgeable and a good teacher

Mallory is prepared and organized with each lesson. She has great tips that are easy to understand and she relates well to her students. I just started violin as an older adult which can be intimidating but I really enjoy my lessons with Mallory. I feel comfortable with her, she’s easy to talk too and I learn something new each week. I highly recommend her!
