About Erin

I have 12 years education in Spanish as a 2nd language. I received a BA in Spanish while attending Miami University. I am fluent conversationally, in writing and in reading. My goal is not only to help a student in their problem areas, but to help the student get a better understanding and appreciation, overall, of the language being taught. I have a passion for sharing the knowledge of the subjects that I love.

I have a BA in Music Performance from Miami University. I have a Masters degree in Music Performance from Kent State University. Singing has always been a joy, and music a special passion of mine. I have performed publicly as a soloist and ensemble member for the past 16 years. In addition to teaching the art of singing, and improving vocal technique, I will share with students the ability to love and appreciate this craft. I also have background in basic French, Italian and German, which is useful for coaching students on lyric diction. I also have a special interest in music history and music appreciation, and I am willing to offer tutoring to students who are in need of assistance in this type of coursework.

I am a patient instructor, taking the time to teach the student information based, on their own individual learning styles and needs. I will often demonstrate a point, and then give the student opportunity to apply the skill themselves, helping them to better enforce the concept. I take time to assist the student with determining key problem areas, focusing on those areas in particular. I will provide written instruction, on my own, if this can be of assistance to the student.
