"Hi, I'm Sofía! I graduated cum laude from Yale University with a degree in Music, where I also enjoyed coursework in English and Psychology. I worked for two years at the Yale Writing Center, helping students construct and revise essays and applications across a wide variety of subjects. During the pandemic, I have offered voice lessons over Zoom to students looking to build skill and find ease in singing music they love. As both a singing instructor and a writing tutor, my top priority is to honor each student's unique voice, and to empower students with the tools they need to take charge of their own learning and growth. I strive to establish learning objectives that are determined by each student's individual needs, goals, and interests. More than anything, I love watching my students gain confidence as they increase their knowledge and improve their technique.

As a writing tutor, I help my students communicate their ideas clearly by working on large-scale structural skills as well as the details of word choice, grammar, and personal voice. In addition to my two years of experience as a writing tutor in college, I excelled as a writer across English, History, and Music courses, winning the 2018 Yale Writing Center Essay Contest.

I performed as a professional a cappella vocalist around the country and the world as a singer with the Yale Whiffenpoofs, Mixed Company of Yale, and Cape Harmony, as well as a paid church vocalist, singing repertoire across pop/jazz/folk/R&B and choral traditions. I studied classical voice at the college level for four years, and won the 2020 Beekman Cannon Friends of Music Prize for my senior project in composition, a songwriting project of over 20 original songs. I have experience arranging, composing, and notating in Sibelius, and recording and producing in Logic Pro X, Protools, and Ableton Live. I studied music history and music theory, and have experience tutoring AP Music Theory.
