Hello! I received a BA in English from San Francisco State University and I have recently relocated to the Austin area to pursue a Master's degree in Ethnomusicology. For the last year, I have been tutoring in the Washington, DC area while doing an internship with Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, the non-profit record label of the Smithsonian Institution. I find tutoring very fulfilling because with one-on-one interaction, students can take major strides towards achieving their academic goals. My main tutoring subjects are English and Writing. Often times, the biggest hurdle people have to overcome with Writing is confidence. I like to create a positive, encouraging environment, which i believe is necessary for learning. I then break composition down into its fundamental components in order to demystify the process. Once a student thoroughly understands the elements of writing, they can deliberately and elegantly construct any academic or personal essay . Outside of writing, my other main interest is music. I have played in a number of rock, jazz and pop groups and am excited to enjoy Austin's vibrant music community. Thank you for reading!
