I am a dedicated educator, and have experience in drawing the best out of my students. I have a great deal of teaching experience, and have thus developed the patience and ability to work with any type of student. I have over fifteen years of full time teaching experience in universities, community colleges, and for-profit institutions. I also have taught numerous adjunct courses for multiple institutions.
I have spent the last 25 years tutoring other subjects, primarily mathematics. I have a PhD in Education, a Masters in music, and a bachelors degree in mathematics. I have a robust publication record and serve as a clinician for music technology nationally. I haves performed as a singer in several professional operas and played guitar in bands. I teach private voice and guitar students from both my studio and local music shops.

I enjoy any music-related activities, including concerts, but I really enjoy any activity that involves participation in music as opposed to merely consuming. I go to the movies often, and I particularly like science fiction films.
