2013

I am a classically trained pianist and certified elementary school teacher. I graduated from Oakland University with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics..

I believe that every learning experience provides students an opportunity to not only learn a hard skill, like piano and math, but also to learn the soft skills such as time management, discipline and motivation.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years. I can teach students to read music, improve aural skills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.

I am also an elementary school math tutor specialized in the Texas curriculum. I have taught 5th grade for 2 years, and near 90% of my students passed Math STAAR test despite the fact that the school average was in the 50% range. 90% of my students made growth when I was their Math teacher at school. I can tailor our lessons to meet your needs and prepare you for middle school.

Your growth is my source of happiness. Hire me today to embark this wonderful journey!
