EducationI graduated from Grant High School in Portland Oregon with a GPA of 3.7, and I am currently attending the Art Institute of Chicago.
ExperienceI taught after school musical theater classes for two years. My students were 11-13 years of age, and I was the musical director of an a capella group for two years.
My reading and writing SAT scores were very high, and I took Honors English, AP english, AP art, and college level social studies classes in high school.
I would like to be a tutor because I have a passion for teaching and I am good at it. I like to work one-on-one with kids, and I think that that is a service that very few kids receive through the public school system. I have always loved to learn for the sake of content, rather than for the sake of reward, and I have been known by teachers throughout my educational career to give one hundred and twenty percent, even of only one hundred present is sufficient to receive an A, because I believe in the significance of the subject matter.
I have been playing piano for fourteen years and took lessons for ten years, I've been playing guitar for nine years, I took voice lessons for six years, and I was the student leader for the elite choir at my high school. As student leader, I had responsibilities as a tutor and director. I create and sell art work through street fairs, bazaars, and personal exhibitions. Now I am attending the Art Institute of Chicago to obtain my BFA.

HobbiesI love to read and write, some of my favorite authors include Gabrielle Garcia Marquez, Scott Fitzgerald, Charles Dickens, and Steven Johnson.
I have a passion for the natural world and an interest, although not an expertise, in the environmental sciences. I love to hike, backpack, and raft. I write and record original music, and love to explore all sorts of musical genres in my spare time. I love to draw and create prints, particularly linoleum black prints.
