"Hajime-mashite! Nice to meet you! My name is Anne and I have my IA K-12 music license, as well as my IN Professional Educator license. I've just added an ESL endorsement to my standard IA teaching license. Although music is my area of endorsement, I have been doing substitute teaching in many areas -- in particular, for middle school math teachers, and also for lower elementary school (K, 1, 2, 3, 4th grade) classrooms. Math is definitely an area I love - nearly as much as music! When it comes to "getting" math, a student needs to have a teacher/tutor who will encourage them to understand the basic principles. If a math student (or a music theory student) is getting "stuck", it's generally due to the student's having never received a clear explanation of some "foundation" (i.e., "basic") step. That's it!

I'd love to help you or your student get a clear understanding of the "basics" - in math, music or music theory, Japanese, English, ESL, or another of my "favorite" subjects! Please drop me an e-mail ASAP so we can discuss the possibilities!

I began teaching in junior high, while helping some of my classmates understand English and math concepts. In college fellow music theory students were beating a path to my room, leaving notes for me with my roommates – asking when we could meet so that I could help them untangle the basics of music theory. One of my favorite-ever moments is getting to see that A-ha! look on the face of my students! That's the best!

I have worked nearly five years overseas in Japan teaching English as a Second Other Language (TESOL), and have also studied intensive Japanese at EASLI (East Asian Summer Language Institute at Indiana University, Bloomington), as well as at Indiana University, South Bend. I have over 20 credits of Japanese language courses (including 3 hours of Asian History), but have not yet pursued adding a Japanese Language teaching endorsement to my license, preferring to teaching individual students or small groups to large classroom settings.
