Education has always been a positive driving force in my life. I believe it is of upmost importance to provide every student with a well-rounded learning process tailored to individual students' lifestyles, personal preferences, and academic preferences.
I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's in Music Education with a Choral emphasis at Florida State University. As a part of my degree, I have had several years (4) of hands-on, in-person teaching experience in both middle schools and high schools here in Florida in which I have completed "behind-the-scenes" and interactive rehearsal work. I have had the opportunity to work with students one-on-one as well as with small and large groups. Overall, I have a passion to help student's find their "best way" to learn.
I can currently tutor: AP Music Theory, Music Theory, IB Music, Conducting, Basic Ukulele, Basic Guitar, Basic Piano, Voice, Vocal Audition Prep, Professional Certifications (FTCE Music K-12; General Knowledge; Professional Education); Pre-Algebra, Algebra, English, English Grammar; Syntax, Elementary (Math, Reading, Writing), Middle School (Math, Reading, Reading Comprehension, Writing), High School (English and Writing)
I believe it is the educator's job to guide the student towards independency as a learner. Instruction should begin hands-on with teacher modeling (i.e. guiding a student through an example math problem) to more passive instruction (i.e. let a student attempt a math problem on their own unless instruction is needed) to finally, complete independency from any resources given in the previous steps. This process involves short-term goal setting that leads to long-term goal achieving.
Outside of my academia, I love to perform classical music. I enjoy listening to showtunes, pop, and indie music. I also enjoy going on morning walks, jogs, or bike rides either alone or with my family. Making time to spend time with my friends and family is also very important to me- especially now with our new family kitty, Annike!
