Hello! My name is Maia, and I have always enjoyed teaching. During my undergraduate I tutored both my peers in writing, including students for whom English was a second language. My goals are to help students avoid frustration and learn to enjoy whatever I am teaching. In writing, I focus on simultaneously building long-term skills and improving individual papers.
As an oboist, I attended Lawrence University & Conservatory, where I majored in Oboe Performance, studying with Howard Niblock. I have coached beginning oboists and am also happy to teach more advanced students, including teaching reed-making. Because of my background in Music history, I am particularly suited to students interested in learning the theories and histories of music alongside developing their performance skills.
