About Me

My expansive breadth of interests has led me through years of experience in the arts and natural sciences. I'm a voice instructor, math tutor, and biology teacher. Now, I'm pursuing a career in opera and vocal performance.

I have extensively studied vocal performance and opera for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have been in many operas and musical theater productions. I am currently performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat at the Booth Tarkington Theatre. I was a finalist in the MasterWorks Festival concerto competition. I have studied other vocal genres, such as jazz and pop. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. I use the appoggio technique of breathing and believe all singing should be produced in a way that does not damage the vocal folds.

I have a bachelors degree in biology with a minor in art. After graduating college, I was a full-time high school biology teacher, volleyball coach, and director of the school musical. As a high school teacher, I learned first hand the kind of pressure and expectations that are placed on students in order for them to succeed. In college, I was the head student researcher on a two-year lab project. I took several upper level science courses including: biochemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, calculus based physics, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. I studied marine biology in the Virgin Islands and am CPR certified.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice lessons with me are fun and effective. You can expect to hear improved technique form day one, eventually reaching your long term goals. I teach an open throat technique called appoggio. It is the technique opera singers use, but can be applied to any music style. This technique allows the singer to sing with their entire voice using a relaxed larynx. I begin every lesson aligning the students voice through various vocal warm ups and exercises. We then work together to pick repertoire that will suit the singer‚¬Ä¬ôs voice and they will enjoy singing. During a lesson we will also cover performance presentation, acting, diction, rhythm, musicality, style, and interpretation.

During tutoring you can expect a personalized plan based on your goals and aspirations. Since every student is different you can be assured we will come up with a plan that is designed just for you. I am a laid back tutor but will be sure to get the most out of you after our time together. Most students see at least a one letter grade improvement. My main goal for every tutoring session is student learning and comprehension.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, recording equipment, large collection of sheet music, subscription to IPAsource (foreign language translations and pronunciations), several math and science textbooks

About Me

I am a passionate educator with over 25 years experience teaching in the classroom on a public and private high school level, as well as considerable experience as a college instructor; thus, I have the ability and experience to convey knowledge to my students from the unique perspective of teaching from the ground up -- elementary, middle school, high school and on to my students' college and professional endeavors.

I am consistently aware where my students are in the present moment and where they are going; I view their ongoing needs, challenges and accomplishments from a perspective of their past, present and future desires, challenges, accomplishments and requirements and am able to solidify their pursuits and prepare them for their academic and professional future.

I have taught in Inner City Schools -- The Bronx, Manhattan and Harlem in NYC for NYC Public Schools; in Gifted and Talented programs and Schools; and for the NYC Catholic Archdiocese in several of the city's finest schools, as well as NYC inner city public schools in the Bronx and Manhattan, NYC, on a full time basis from Grades 5 - 12; and as a long term substitute, from Grades K-4.

Two of the schools where I taught English Language Arts, and Test Taking Skills, graduated U.S. Supreme Court Judges Sonya Sotomayor, from Cardinal Spellman H.S. in the Bronx; and Elena Kagan, from Hunter Colege High School, a Gifted and Talented school in Manhattan (NY, NY). I also taught in innter city schools in El Paso, TX; Minneapolis, MN, and at suburban high school in New Mexico.

Since my move to Chicago in 2012 I have worked steadily as a writer and editor in my own Editing/Writing business as discussed in my advertisement.

I have home schooled Chicago students in English Composition, where we concentrated on writing, grammar and vocabulary; and in the Humanities areas of Social Studies, History, Math and the Sciences, where I designed and created curriculum for all of these disciplines that complied with IL State Core Curriculum requirements.

Extensive professional background and years of experience in the Arts - Theatre, Film, Art. Have taught acting for many years to children and professionals, and am able to expose and educate your home school child to these fields via formal instruction and field trips to cultural and educational events.

It has been my experience to teach and tutor elementary, middle school, high school, and College Students, along with Business Professionals and Adults in English Composition and ESL, where we concentrate on the writing of essays, papers, theses, reports and ACT & ESL Exam Preparation; Speech, which includes writing and performance; Acting; ACT & ESL Test Preparation; and ESL Writing and Speaking.

For years I have been writing curriculum and reading comprehension passages, which includes assembling enough of these reading comprehension passages and their accompanying questions, which include Fiction -- classic literature, creative fictional passages, poetry and fairy/folk tales; and Non-Fiction -- Biographies, Science, History and Social Studies passages -- in order to provide my students, including home schooled students, with a reading comprehension passage and their accompanying questions 7 days a week.

Studies have shown this is the most effective method of obtaining excellent, if not superior, reading comprehension skills, because this method of acquiring this skill is learned organically and over time; thus, students do not have to be taught how to achieve excellent results in any of the reading comprehension passages they encounter on formal, entrance or qualifying examinations that they will be required to take throughout their schooling, along with those examinations they will need to pass in order to qualify and achieve certification in professional fields. Teaching to tests is unnecessary, and it has been proven that this method of teaching is largely only an exercise in learning how to test, not learning to read with excellent reading comprehension skills.

I have produced, directed and designed for my own theatrical production company for the last 14 years and, upon request, will supply a list of the productions in which I was involved, along with a list of productions in which I have been involved on a professional basis as a Performance Artist, Producer, Director and Designer.

It may be because of my theatrical training and experience, but I've been told that I am an interesting teacher with whom to study, and come to the classroom and tutorial experience with instructional methods and real-world experience that is accompanied with a highly developed sense of humor. This enables me to help make learning fun, while providing my students with a more fully rounded education.

I'm always interested in and consistently strive to find those personal connections with each one of my students that illuminates a path to personalize and activate my students' innate desire and need for learning in all subjects tutored. I

I personally love to learn as much as my profession, and get along well with students of all ages. The great thing about teaching is that those of us in this profession learn as much from our students as our students learn from us!

I look forward to hearing from you!

About Me

I'm a 27 year old graduate of Columbia University, where I studied International Relations with a pre-medical concentration. Having taken a variety of courses and standardized tests, I'm intimately aware of what it takes to succeed in academic settings. I'm currently working towards a Master's Degree in Women & Gender Studies. Subsequently, I plan to apply to medical school.

Regarding tutoring, I have four years of experience and have several references. I've tutored all ages (elementary school students - graduate students) and specialize in math/science subjects. I also have achieved success with my students regarding the SAT, ACT, MCAT, GRE, and LSAT exams. My students have gone on to attend Ivy League undergraduate as well as graduate institutions.

As far as expectations, I expect my students to just try their hardest. I assign homework after every session and am big on giving and receiving feedback. It's important to me to that the student and/or parent is completely satisfied with my tutoring.

At the end of the day, my first priority are my students and ensuring that they understand and are comfortable with the material in question. Not only will this help with their overall self-esteem, but they'll be armed with the skills to tackle their academic obstacles.

While I do have a 36-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes and try to be flexible.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you surpass your academic goals.
