About Me

With a vocal performance degree from DePaul University and three years of private voice lesson experience, I am capable of giving you/your child the vocal attention needed. I specialize in classical voice, but have worked with students wanting to sing Broadway styles. Whether you are a beginner looking to learn how to read music or begin singing, or you are more experienced and looking to expand your range/repertoire, I am qualified to meet your needs.

I have just returned from living in Paris for the past year and a half, where I was working and studying French, but also singing with an A capella group. Before traveling to France, I was singing in Chicago and also teaching private lessons.

About Me

I have a BA in International Studies and Linguistics from the University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana)

I speak 4 languages fluently and I am conversational in about 8 more. I've been teaching new languages to adults and my peers ever since High School and now that I have my degree, I will be teaching language full time.

Ever since I was a kid, I've been fascinated by languages. I noticed in my 4th grade Spanish class that I spoke Spanish better than the Hispanic kids who were speaking it at home. Ever since then, I've had no trouble learning any language I've set out to learn.

I am also very well versed in International Studies, Geography and History.

About Me

In addition to having a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in French, I have been tutoring a variety of students from ages 6 to 25, where I helped students ace their exams, understand the French culture and thus broaden their understanding by connecting to the world outside their community. I organized individualized projects, customized tests and implemented learning style research in every lesson.
My personal interest in psychology, philosophy and ethnology, helps me to understand the children, their backgrounds and their mental capabilities better, which in turn, makes me a better teacher. I would hereby like to fulfill my passion of teaching in a sound environment.
