Overview

As a performing artist, I understand the many challenges that learning and communicating a new skill (such as learning a new language or studying music) presents. However, with years of experience, I have learned how to master many of them, and to teach others how to overcome their own difficulties by encouraging the teacher within each of them.

Experience

ESL Coach

Aug 2008 - Present
Listening and Communicating through Observation

For nearly seven years, I have helped clients in one-on-one and group settings to evolve their involvement in the English language.

I have worked with a range of non-native English learners, including children, parents, businessmen and educators. My approach, adaptive by principle, encourages clients to observe their own strengths and weaknesses. From there, they are increasingly able to take charge of their language learning process.

Music Teacher

Jul 2003 - Present
Saxophone, Woodwinds, Jazz and Music Theory.

Specializing in teaching children and adult students, privately and in group settings. I have worked with students of all ability levels, from beginner to professional.

Music is an intrinsic part of who we are; although each of us learns it a different way.

Saxophonist
