Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

I knew George for a few years and decided to ask him to tutor me in order to prepare for my college exams. Suffice to say that I not only passed my course but learned a great deal more as he made the themes and concepts truly interesting. Highly recommended

About Marcia
Hi,there! My name is Marcia and I am really excited to meet you. I've been teaching ESL since 1990, Brazilian Portuguese since 2001 and TOEIC preparation since 2006. I have loved helping my students master English as a Second Language grammar, vocabulary, and conversation. It is thrilling to see my students accomplish their goals when they are able to converse, read, and write in their target language,and when they improve their comprehension and pronunciation skills. My academic background is one hundred percent language oriented. I am a translator for Brazilian Portuguese but have worked as a teacher since I graduated because teaching is my passion and learning is my passion.

I am a very enthusiastic teacher and I have been voted the best teacher of the year virtually every year. I use a communicative approach and my goal is t
o keep the teacher-student talk time respectively at a 30% and 70% ratio.

I can't wait for the opportunity to help you reach your linguistic goal.

About Elisha
First of all, congratulations on having the courage and self-discipline to do what most others do not: learn a new language. The hard part is over! You've already begun the learning process and now all you need is someone to give you the guidance, support, and tools to help you along the way.

I hold my students to high standards, believing that setting consistent and high expectations is the key to success and improvement. I encourage students to reach these standards by providing honest feedback about their strengths and weaknesses, actively listening, and individualizing every lesson. Though I set high standards for students, I expect and even encourage them to make mistakes. Making mistakes is the best way to begin getting better and lets me know what areas we should work on together.
