After graduating from Elmhurst College with a Bachelor’s in Music Theory/Composition, I completed post-baccalaureate science and math courses, and then went on to study medicine for 2.5 years at Bastyr University. While I appreciate medical school for the challenges, lessons, and personal growth it offered, I recently left that program, realizing that my dream is to be an orchestral conductor. I am currently in the process of finding the right school for this undertaking.

One skill I gained through changing careers twice is the ability to enter an area where I have no experience, and quickly acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for succeeding in that field. As a matter of fact, it is because of this background that I have developed study skills focusing around the act of studying itself. From having applied these skills in a variety of fields, I have seen that if a person wants to be able to learn anything, then they must learn HOW to learn.

Through the roles of college tutor, private music lessons instructor, and choir director, I have worked with students in: anatomy, physiology, biology, chemistry, algebra, music (theory, instrumental, voice), writing, and more. While we do focus on different contents depending on the students’ needs, there are some overarching principles of learning that can be applied to the mastery of any subject. As a tutor, I focus on developing in my students an awareness of these methods, so that they are able to maximize their learning experiences.

I love working with students to help them achieve their learning goals, and pick up lifelong learning skills in the process. If you are interested in learning any of the subjects I have listed, or would like to learn how to learn, then I would be very excited to work with you.
