About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I'm all about music fun, but I also ask my students to work hard.
I believe a child should feel successful at every lesson. Each person has musicality within them and when a child is ready, I love to help them bring out that inner musician.

We will work on a wide range of aspects in music from theory, ear training, sight reading, rhythm and more. For piano I use the Faber collection. I will make sure getting your materials is easy and uncomplicated.

So, get set and ready to have some super music fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: desk, sofa, parents can sit in on lesson, piano, music stand, small table and music stand for guitar lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
My students must have an instrument of decent quality. I have them pay for their books, but I pick them up.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in voice and can teach any genre.

In guitar, I teach theory and folk/ rock methods mostly

In piano, I specialize in teaching kids.

About Me

Hey!

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 and Jazz Performance on Guitar at Portland State University! At each of these Universities I taught students my age as well as locals in each town and have been supporting myself entirely through music since 2008!

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!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm fairly laid back, and teach from a number of different texts depending on the interests of the student. Each student is different, and I vary instruction accordingly. I have a lot of experience songwriting, composing, and playing as a sideman in groups on different instruments. I've been part of bands led by myself and been hired by other people, as well as composing for different groups of instruments from trios to full orchestras.

If there is interest, I can also provide worksheets based on the curriculum and standards held by the University of Oregon, and Portland State University.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private home studio equipped with a many guitars, a piano, a Wurlitzer, electric bass and amplifier, two drum kits, and a beautiful kitty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitars, amplifiers, and notebooks for all students even if they do not own guitars or amplifiers. I also make copies and email attachments of all homework, and record lessons and send them to students to listen to when practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing and studying guitar since I was seven years old. I've attended Berkley School of Music summer workshops, camps, seminars, and presented music theory papers at conferences at the University of Oregon. I can and am willing to teach any type of musical style or interest to any skill level!

I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar, bass, cornet and glockenspiel, and teach music lessons. I enjoy playing duets with my students, sharing the fun of making music with them. I do macrame', draw and paint, and am certified as a Reiki Master. I always loved school, and enjoy helping other people to learn. My Dad is my role model, since he was a calm, patient tutor for me - I try to live up to his example in my own teaching work.
I like to work with my students in a learning partnership, letting them work at their own pace with my encouragement and support.
I love to teach, and can help you love to learn!

Hello! My name is Eric H. and I have recently graduated from Oregon State University with a B.A. in English and minor in Writing. This makes me ideally suited to tutor anyone who seeks help with any aspect of the English language.

Since high school and throughout university I have been tutoring peers and classmates in the intricacies and nuances of the English language. Frequently, these have also been International students where English is their second language, so I have experience in tutoring ESL.

About Me

I've been a tutor in upper level math since 2011 at a tutoring facility in Sandy, OR. As I branch out and set appointments around my own class schedule, I hope to serve more students who need help or review in mathematics and other subjects. My interests in education are anatomy and physiology, science, and math. I have a wide range of experience in tutoring and working with youth from newborns to adults going back to school. I spent 3 years working for the City of Eugene Recreation in Eugene, OR where I was a preschool classroom assistant, after-school program coordinator, and summer middle school group leader. I received inclusion training through the City of Eugene to boost my experience and awareness of working with students with special needs. My summers between 2004 and 2009 were spent at Camp Namanu in Sandy, OR where I worked with youth ages 6-18 as a camp counselor and then as a program coordinator and transportation coordinator. During my time at Camp Namanu, I was a lifeguard, river rafting guide, cabin counselor, and driver. I am CPR certified through the Red Cross. I have also completed training in child abuse and neglect recognition and reporting. My educational background includes a high school diploma from Forest Grove High School, class of 2005. I attended Southern Oregon University for one semester before transferring to Lane Community College in Eugene, OR. Between 2006 and 2009 I studied early childhood education and journalism at LCC. I also worked at the assistant sports editor, transitioning to the head sports editor and then to the news editor position at the student-run newspaper, The Torch, at LCC. I am currently attending Birthingway College of Midwifery (Portland, OR) in pursuit of an associates degree as a Lactation Consultant. My passion for breastfeeding as well as maternal and infant health are my motivation to work with new mothers to ensure a healthy start for their child. I am a mother of 2 children. We enjoy the outdoors, music, and art.
