Overview

I believe in holistic education and wellness practices. As a tutor and piano teacher, I go above and beyond the basics. I also help students with improving memory, developing effective study/practice habits, time management and setting and achieving goals. I am also very passionate about helping students successfully apply for college. The college application process can be very intimidating and I work hard to provide students with all the information, advice, and financial aid resources necessary for making the best decision.

My work as a life and wellness coach is reflective of my tutoring pedagogy. It's unrealistic to try to develop proper nutrition and body care habits overnight. It takes time, practice, and the support of an experienced professional.

I am new to TakeLessons, but I have 9 years of combined experience as a tutor, teacher, and wellness and life coach. I have an MBA, Bachelor's degree in Public Health, and a teaching certificate in mathematics and French. I have played the piano since the age of 4.

I provide impeccable client service and go the extra mile to ensure that all of my clients are satisfied. I am truly passionate about learning and aspire to create the same passion in each and every student I work with.
