"Teaching is one of the most fulfilling things in my life. It allows me to pass along knowledge to students and also watch them grow as individuals. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is when a student finally understands a concept, or can play something on the guitar which they couldn't at the beginning of the lesson. In this way, I believe that I help empower students to recognize their potential and to see that, if they work hard, they can achieve their goals and be successful."

Education and Qualifications
|school:||University of Wisconsin-Madison|
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with honors in my major. During my time at the University I tutored with the Center for Educational Opportunity, providing tutoring to first-generation college students. This job afforded me the opportunity to hone my tutoring skills and work with students of varying ability levels. I also attended graduate school for one year before withdrawing from my program; there I further developed my language and teaching skills. Since then, I've continued to tutor privately through various websites.
I have also been playing guitar for over 17 years and teaching privately for 8. I am able to teach various aspects of guitar playing--from music theory and music reading, to simply being able to play along to one's favorite songs or jamming in a band.
