I am a graduate of Loyola Marymount University. I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts & Studio Arts with an emphasis in Piano Performance and Design. I recently received my Juris Doctor from Concord and I am awaiting my bar results.
Having taught classical piano for almost ten years, I have the ability to have clear, written objectives when it comes to seeking opportunities to reach goals. I know how to engage others by asking questions, communicate effectively, and most important, show others that my concerns are more than just business. I like to think of myself as an educator with a strong emotional backbone. Daily I interact with students from different backgrounds, different learning skills, and different emotions.
Building my private music studio over the years with the help of the Small Business Administration, has given me incredible knowledge of operating a business and enhanced my writing skills when preparing a business plan, which I had the opportunity to present to Wells Fargo in the year 2007. I have also worked with other organizations such as the LA District Attorney's Office, the Regional Center of Orange County and Spafax Airline Network, which in return has given me excellent grounding in office management, writing reports, and organizational skills.
I have taught many subjects, but my current focuses are: College Essays, Essay Editing, Public Speaking, Study Skills and Organization, and Executive Functioning. I believe with the experience mentioned above, I have the ability to help my students achieve any goal they wish to obtain.
In my free time I enjoy attending my Italian meetup group to practice my Italian. Also, I enjoy playing tennis, competing in half marathons for worthy causes, going to the movies, and walking my lovely Australian Shepherd.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is not to teach for only a moment or particular assignment, but to give students skills they can use in the future.
