Miss Ena is always singing!
From an early age, I have been participating in music activities, such as choir as well as various musicals like 'Oliver' and 'The Sound of Music'. As music has always been one of my best friends. Like water, I enjoy drinking from the wellspring of muse and melody.
I enjoy music most when it is shared with the natural joy of children. I have an extensive background of teaching private voice, piano and guitar to children. It's the best job in the world, getting to watch a child grow through the magic of music! I received my Kindermusik license in Summer 2005. After working with Dana Harris, formerly of 'Dana's School of Music', Dana thought I would be a perfect Kindermusik teacher.
My education is both experience and university based. In 2003, I graduated from Clark College with a 3.7 gpa. During my two and a half years at Clark, I studied voice with April Brookins Duvic. I, then moved on to Portland State University. During my two years at PSU, I studied voice with Margaret Daane and piano with Connie Titterington. I also attended Marylhurst University working towards my BA in voice performance. I am now taking a break from school to work on some fundamental musical training. I study voice with Pollyanna Hancock Moody and studied piano with John Haek. I have done my best work at Marylhurst and plan to return in fall 2008.
My experience ranges from childhood productions to improv comedy groups. It is the joy of music that I shared with my late mother that built such a lifelong foundation. Singing and sharing with mom gave me some great tools for a successful life, but most importantly, it created an unbreakable bond between her and I and myself and music.

Hi! I have my masters degree in earth science from the University of California, Santa Barbara and my undergraduate degree in geology and earth systems science from Penn State University. I worked for a short time in the science field, and I've also been an educator in a number of settings including schools, after school programs, homeschool programs, and summer camps.
Currently I am taking classes part time in the social sciences and working on freelance writing. I have mentored and tutored kids from kindergarten through college. I have successfully worked with kids with many different learning styles and learning challenges, and I take a creative individualized approach to tutoring. I can help the student break down complex topics to understand them in a way that is relevant and appropriate to their individual needs. I can help a student feel confident about their school work.

I offer custom instruction for students with specific goals in mind. If you want to get an A in your math class, or even if you just want to pass, I will work with you to design a study plan week by week plan to get you the results you need.
I am a very proficient instructor for topics in math, science, and test preparation. I have experience teaching other Dartmouth students in diverse science and math subjects, as well as teaching standard and advanced-level high school students.
I enjoy teaching and particularly enjoy finding ways to present specific concepts in clear, memorable terms. I particularly excel in subjects where rote memorization is not central, and instead mastery of interrelated concepts is key. I believe math and science offer opportunities for every student to accomplish meaningful successes and gain new understandings of themselves and the natural world, so I push every student to see learning as a way to better themselves.
I have taken the PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT II subject tests, eight AP tests, and the GRE, LSAT, and GMAT. On each of these tests I have scored above the 90th percentile. On some of these tests I scored over the 98th percentile. I thoroughly understand the principles I am offering to teach.

My name is Kyle S. and I'm incredibly passionate about music education for all ages. Over twenty years of playing all instruments has taught me there is not one specific way to teach music, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in. I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.
I went on to study Music Education at Oregon State University and Guitar Performance at the University of Oregon. At each of these Universities I taught students my age, and a few professors, as well as locals in each town.
In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Music Schools around town to help underprivileged kids, and expose them to the joy of music. Give me a call and we can talk about what you're interested in, and get lessons started.
Look forward to hearing from you!
