I am a certified English teacher, currently teaching high-school level English in Houston ISD. I have a supplemental certification in English as a Second Language and a degree in Spanish Language and Literature. Additionally, I am a professional violist in the Houston area, with music degrees from Bard College, The Juilliard School and Rice University. I have been teaching violin and viola lessons for over a decade.
I am an easy-going and patient person, balanced with a passionate commitment to helping my students meet and exceed their individual goals. I am flexible with my teaching style because I seek to understand and meet the needs of each student on a personal basis. I am thorough and hard-working, and will go out of my way to provide the comprehensive instruction and motivational support that my students need.
