I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

While I prefer working out of Piano Adventures Method Books for piano students, I'm happy to work out of materials you already own.

In following years, I did post graduate work at Alverno College and went on to complete Suzuki teacher training in Suzuki Books 1-4. Besides teaching private violin, viola, and piano

Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

About Chrissy

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or trying to change careers, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. As a result, most of my students get comfortable with programming after 4-6 sessions, and become more independent in programming, being able to troubleshoot issues with their own code.

For intermediate developers, I can tailor my lessons to your specific goals, and focus on more engineering topics, such as software architecture, design patterns, performance/efficiency/scalability considerations, and interacting with external components, such as hardware/networking/operating systems/databases. In addition, I can help with technical whiteboard interviews, having extensive experience on both sides of the interview table.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for ...

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best
