Hi, I'm Riku. I'm a recent college graduate whose passion is music. I've been playing guitar for 9 years and singing and songwriting for over 10 years. If you've started guitar but are having trouble with chords, scales, fingerpicking and whatnot, I can improve you in no time with efficient and interactive one-on-one lessons. If you aspire to be a singer but are struggling to hit your pitch or widen your range, we will train together until you become a proficient vocalist. My approach to teaching is to be as efficient with the allotted time as possible, while allowing for maximum creative freedom in the student to develop their own style.

For those that pursue writing, although admittedly my minor in creative writing didn't teach me much, my years of dedication to writing short stories, poetry and songs did. I guarantee to help my students write both technically and figuratively better, in essays, stories, or songs with melodies and rhythm included, whatever they choose. Of course, I can also aid the student with basics of the English language as well if needed.

I have two years experience at a tutoring center for first to sixth grade children in English. Many of them were first generation Chinese students, and though they struggled with the language and some were reluctant to education, this facility is where I learned to connect personally with students yet be firm and critical. I graduated from New York University with a minor in Creative Writing.

I am very passionate about playing guitar, singing, and songwriting. I have one year of experience providing lessons for dedicated friends and friends of friends, in which the meetings were productive but filled with easygoing conversation. I street perform around New York City and I am constantly improving.

Contact me at any time; I check my email very frequently! Scheduling lessons with me will be easy as I have an extremely flexible schedule that can bend to what works for you.
