Experience

As a tutor, I believe it is important for students to understand not just the basic concepts in a difficult subject, but to also know how to do their own research and find their answers. While I am a musician as well as a tutor, I hold a bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science, and I use that information to help my students work through issues they have with their subject matter. I want to make sure each student discovers their own learning style under my tutelage. I want to guide them to resources, rather than giving them the answers. As a tutor, I can work with students in a variety of subjects, including all levels of math, English grammar and mechanics, math for standardized and college tests, music, social studies and US history, reading comprehension, art, and all kinds of test prep. I especially enjoy working with students on humanities subjects like writing and editing. Because I studied voice and opera performance in addition to neuroscience, I have studied multiple languages - Spanish, Italian, French, and German. Learning new languages helps me appreciate the complexity of English, and that helps me to be a better instructor for reading and writing.
