Hi there! I have been a middle school and high school teacher for the past 10 years, as well as maintained a profession in music here in Nashville, TN. I have a master's degree in Education and a PhD in progress in music education. I can teach (or tutor) piano, guitar, voice, saxophone, clarinet, flute, trumpet, bass, drums, mandolin, and banjo. My non-music subjects that I tutor include English (writing skills, grammar, vocabulary, reading), math, test preps (ACT, SAT, GED), study skills, and various other single subjects such as psychology, nutrition, and more. Within my career as a teacher, I was dedicated to those who were struggling in organization and proper study habits. Most kids fall behind not only because they need a bit more help with understanding the content, but mostly how to stay afloat in an entire subject area.
