About Kristen

I love teaching and sharing my knowledge with others. I am very passionate about music and have over 25+ years piano experience, working as a professional pianist in a number of settings. In addition, I teach many students children and adults how to become fantastic pianists. My piano education was a fun yet disciplined environment. With a background in classical, popular, jazz, Broadway and more, my teaching repertoire is a vast one which give students a well rounded piano education!

They say that when you study music the mathematical and language side of the brain will be enhanced. This is so with me, as I also love math and Spanish. Teaching it is so much fun, I offer great methods for students to use to understand both subjects, so they will not struggle anymore. In math I use a step by step method that once it is discovered and understood by the student he or she will never fail! In Spanish I use memory techniques to spark the language center causing the student to want to speak Spanish even at home. So if I begin tutoring your child, don't be surprised if you hear them answer you in Spanish!

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.

General Computer

I have an extensive background in computers. I took many college courses online, and am very competent in the Microsoft Office Suite which includes Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Publisher. In addition, I use the computer for all of my web design and internet marketing / business work, utilizing the internet, email, Facebook, linkedin, Twitter, internet explorer, Firefox, and more.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I love working with PowerPoint and have been doing so for over 15 years. I have worked with students ranging from 5th grade through college using PowerPoint to make outstanding presentations. My students have done so well with PowerPoint and it's a lot of fun to use the full program. From simple presentation slideshows to those incorporating music and creative transitions, I can work with you to fit your project needs.

Piano

I began piano lessons when I was only four and continued with them for many years. I am classically trained and with that foundation was able to expand into many other genres of music including jazz, pop, broadway, standards, and more. Today, I am still performing at private functions and love teaching students children and adults how to play the piano. It is such a huge passion of mine.

Web Design

I have been involved with web design for over 6 years. I design websites for small businesses and entertainers/individuals. I use the Adobe Suite CS 3 of programs which includes Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, and in Design. I took many classes and seminars on the use of these programs and use them in my work all the time.
