About Maggie

I have been teaching violin for about 4 years and playing for over 25. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever. I teach using the Suzuki Method and

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

I have taught or been a teaching assistant for several web development courses at universities. One of my web development courses involved basic web design with HTML and CSS. Students designed a small website as a final project. I have mastered the use of basic HTML tags, such as links, images, and lists, as well as more complex web page elements, such as tables and forms. I will teach you the programming concepts as well as walk through coding examples. Boost your confidence in web design and programming by scheduling a one-on-one lesson with me!

Are you new to Photoshop and need some help getting started? No Problem. It is a wonderful program that is very intuitive once you know where things are. I know how intimidating it can be at first to learn a new program because I continue to learn new ones myself. i am very patient and happy to help.

Basic functions for Photoshop include cropping rotating moving images around and then taking photos and manipulating them suddenly so that they don’t look manipulated. In addition, you can learn the best practices for preparing photos for the Internet or for print. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know you as a student and what learning style works best with you.

I had a great time and learned a lot painting with Sharon. This was my first painting lesson. She is patient, helpful and very passionate about watercolors. She is also very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
Sharon will tailor your lesson to your goals. You do not need to be an artist to enjoy these lessons.

Sharon was my introduction to watercolor painting! Her suggestions were very helpful. Her depth of knowledge and experience were stimulating and lead me to read and research artists and concepts. She was patient with this novice, and I look forward to more lessons.
