Teaching since:
June 2010

I am a professionally certified teacher and trained, patient tutor who loves to learn and teach! In college, I studied music education and French, as well as vocal performance. I also worked as a tutor and received professional tutor training in the areas of French, music, and ACT test subjects (Science, Math, English, Reading, and Writing). Recently, I have been teaching music in a public school and teaching/tutoring private students in my free time. I am a professionally certified teacher with over 3000 hours of teaching and tutoring experience. I specialize in tailoring lessons to meet student needs, so all of my students can achieve their goals! I can't wait to meet you and get started working with you or your child on personalized lessons!
