About this tutor

Back in school, I used to be a peer mentor to struggling students. After I graduated high school, I found that teaching is my passion. I love to see the aha moments in students, and just seeing students pass their exams and courses bring me so much joy. Thus, I continue to teach until this day. 
Piano has been my instrument for over 10 years. I have finished all levels of music theory, and have passed the Certificate of Merit Exam for the Advanced Level for Music Theory and Piano Performance in 2015. In high school, I received A's in both semesters of AP Music Theory, as well as passing the AP Music Theory Exam from CollegeBoard. I have taught Music Theory in a classroom setting before. I have performed on small stages and large stages (Carnegie Hall), I have placed 1st in multiple international competitions, such as the International Duo Competition, the Carmel Klavier International Competition, the Grand Prize Virtuoso International Piano Competition in Vienna and Rome, the American Protege International Concerto Competition, and many more.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Please do not hesitate to ask for a free trial. I will be more than willing to do a test run to see if we are a good fit. 

I'm not a diddle-daddly person. With a student's first session, I will spend approximately 5 minutes on introductions and discussing goals, and then I will jump write into course material.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I am a college student, and so my memory and skill sets are still fresh. I'm not a lecture-based teacher, very hands on and visual, and so my lessons are very engaging, easy to understand, and not boring as I am able to teach in a way for students to easily understand as I am close to their age.
