I am a professional opera singer that has performed extensively across most genres. While I do teach a classical foundation, I have a firm grasp on the differences of various styles, and believe strongly that having a 'classical technique' doesn't mean that one must sing operatically. Healthy sustainable singing is possible across all genres, and is an important baseline if you want to be able to sing for a long time.
In addition to being a singer, I also have a history of tutoring other subjects. During my undergraduate training, I tutored basic math, music theory, sing-singing, and aural skills (ear-training); eventually earning the "Excellence in Tutoring" award my senior year.
