Anderson University - Indiana (Music Education)
My passion and love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. From a young age, I have always been adamant about being the best that I could be in whatever I was working towards, whether that be my schoolwork, my dance technique, or fitness.
I graduated cum laude from Anderson University in Indiana, which shows that I am a hard worker who would love to tutor your elementary-aged child in any subject in which they may be struggling. I also am proficient in a variety of the performing arts. I was an NFL Colts Cheerleader in 2014, a top ten contestant in the Miss Ohio pageant, and an elementary music teacher for 3 years. All of these accomplishments show that I am passionate and proficient in dance, theater, public speaking, and musical performance. I would be honored to help hone you or your child's skill in any of these areas.
A few of my most proud accomplishments and credentials are that I am a Certified Elementary Music Teacher in Vocal and Band (K-12) as well as a seasoned private vocal and piano teacher. During college, I completed in a variety of pageants within the Miss America System, even placing in the top 10 at Miss Ohio my final year of competition. During my tenure as a contestant, I was an interview, swimsuit, and talent award recipient. Also during college, I served as the secretary of NAFME (National Association for Future Music Educators) in my college's club.
In the realm of fitness, I not only have the passion and personal dedication to fitness, but I have the drive and the credentials to successfully help others achieve their goals. In addition to my accolades in the pageant system, I also was an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader, which entails not only the stamina to endure an entire football game of performing for the crowd, but weekly group workouts. I am now currently a member of Crossfit box, where I workout every day in addition to being certified as a personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
I am passionate about helping others become their best selves.

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.
I have been active my entire life, participating in dance and gymnastics from the age of 4 onward. I cheered with the Indianapolis Colts as a cheerleader, which involves strenuous physical fitness and daily group workouts. I also recently received my certification as a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
Ever since I was 2 years old, I have been singing, dancing, and playing instruments for the enjoyment of others! I studied ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, hip hop, modern, partner, and cheerleading from the age of 4 through present day. Along with my love and expertise for dance, I developed quite a love and savvy for music. I studied voice privately for 8 years, participated in many musicals and operas, as well as serving as the elementary music teacher for 3 years at a public school in Indiana. Whether I perform on a stage, or help others to perform, I have what it takes to help you reach your performing goals!
I began studying piano at the age of 6 years old. I took a brief break from piano in my high school years to focus in on dance and singing, but I never lost my passion for the art form. I went on to study classically throughout most of my college years under Randy Frieling, who performed at Carnegie Hall. I studied classical, jazz, and musical theatre, in addition to accompanying for some voice lessons throughout my tenure at college. As a music teacher, I utilized my piano skills on a daily basis by accompanying my students songs and games, even accompanied them during their live music programs and choir performances. Whether I perform on a stage, or help others to perform, I have what it takes to help you reach your performing goals in piano!
