"Hi, I'm Margaret! I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in Arts & Letters, specializing in music performance. I hold two Master's degrees in Music, from Duquesne University and the University of Texas at Austin. I also hold a DMA (Doctorate of Musical Arts) degree from UT Austin. As a musician and music historian, I have experience in multiple languages (French, Italian, German) and Western History.

I have experience in the high school classroom as well as tutoring and mentoring for college students. I love helping students feel more confident in their own writing and study skills. As a tutor, I am patient and creative, and I enjoy finding new subjects to learn about through my students. I hope my passion for learning will inspire my students!

I have taken college courses in French, German, and Italian. I am most proficient in French, including vocabulary, writing, speaking, and reading. German and Italian are beginning-intermediate. I have also lived abroad in French, German, and Italian-speaking countries.

I have always enjoyed writing, proofreading, and editing. I have tutored in critical reading skills and helped with essay-writing and editing skills. Working on writing is a wonderful task because the material always changes. With each look at an essay, one gets the chance to present thoughts more clearly, and so create an impression on the world. I myself scored high on ACT English, ACT Reading, and GRE Language tests.

Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson! I'm happy to do online sessions!" less...
