"Hi there! My name is Morgan; I recently graduated with a degree in psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. I grew up bilingual, learning Chinese in at an alternative school in San Francisco, and performing often in classical piano competitions. I spent summers and breaks at specialty music schools, honing my skills and voice, and have 5 years' performing experience in local bands from the Denver rock/ funk/ jam scene. Before I committed to my BA program, I took an extended time off to do self-work and look deeply at myself and who I wanted to be in the world. When I re-emerged, I knew without a doubt I wanted to teach. I derive the most pleasure in life by helping curious and devoted students reach their goals. I have about 3 years' experience teaching music (composition, music theory, piano/ keys, vocals, band coaching sessions). Aside from music, I have always had exceptional English language skills and a powerful value of language acquisition. When the pandemic began, I completed an 11-week TEFL certification through International TEFL Academy, and proceeded to work for about 3 months at International Institute of New England, tutoring high-intermediate levels. I loved these students and they loved me- we talked about more than just grammar and vocabulary, but also life and culture and living. I want to give YOU as my students the BEST possible experience. I seek a healthy balance between pushing my students and also listening to their needs and being sensitive to the entire being of a student- mental, physical, emotional, spiritual. I believe only when we pay attention to all aspects can the deepest and most profound learning occur. - TEFL Certified, through ITA (International TEFL Academy) (ESL/ ESOL) - Exceptional writing and speaking skills - Experience with all sorts of language: creative (I am a songwriter, after all!), logistical (I am incredibly organized), business (great at crafting professional emails), personal - Strong believer and teacher of Active Listening - Excellent at explain" less...
