"I am a graduate of Iowa state university. While my degree is in Music education, I am passionate about helping all students succeed. I have experience with K-8 students, and have loved watching them learn and grow. Whether your learner needs help with school work, or extra enrichment to keep them excited about learning, I am passionate about helping them grow.

Literacy is a key component to a successful education. My goal as a teacher is to support student growth in literacy through storytelling, writing, and other creative outlets. Prior to tutoring I worked as a camp counselor where campers participated in 30 mins of guided reading time a day. This included activities such as group read alongs, where students would make predictions and inferences. This also included supporting student through independent reading books, working on skills such as context clues and close reading.

I have always been passionate about music, and love sharing my talents with students. As an oboist for the last 12 years, I have enjoyed such experiences as playing with the ISU symphonic band, touring Europe with the ISU wind ensemble, and playing numerous performances. I studied music theory for two and a half years, and have experience in supporting students ranging from kindergarten through advanced eighth graders in music theory and literacy. Music history gives context to what students are learning and opens windows to provide a glimpse into why music is the way we know it to be. I studied music history for two years and love sharing that knowledge with my students to provide context to what they are learning.

I am passionate about helping students find their love for learning. I look forward to hearing from you and your learner about how I can best support and enrich their learning experience. My flexible student schedule makes me available frequently throughout the week so learning can be accomplished on a timetable that works best for everyone involved." less...
