I am a passionate teacher who has taught and worked with children ranging from elementary to high school students. I have always found every teaching opportunity absolutely satisfying. I have been teaching since I was in high school with my own studio, with my most recent experience was tutoring children in a music school in Queens. Recently, I have also been focusing on a variety of solo undertakings as well. I recorded two solo albums and have dabbled in the commercial and pop industries, including a GMC commercial that was played widespread on television. I attend New York University and have had many great solo opportunities alongside my teaching experiences.
Since I started learning the violin at the age of seven, I have had a range of experiences that have cultivated my sense of leadership and empathy. I have been a part of a variety of different youth orchestras growing up and this constant exposure to working with my peers have allowed me to develop strong skills in teamwork and communication. In high school I was awarded a legislative resolution for my accomplishments for music in the community. I have held concertmaster and associate concertmaster positions in my youth orchestras, as well as my orchestra at New York University. In doing so I have been able to use my experiences to lead others with patience and confidence. Among those I privately tutor, I was able to teach a diverse population of students, including students with special needs. I have been able to gain the knowledge to teach children who have a hard time concentrating and/or not able to communicate well with others. I work well with older clients, students, and peers in any endeavor that requires it, and any such opportunities have furthered my ability to work well with others. Thus, I hope to be able to connect with and teach students to help them grow and learn to develop a lifelong interest in music.
For beginning students who are children, I typically start with a basic book like Fiddle Magic by Sally O'Reilly. Once the student has grasped the fundamentals, I will move on to the Suzuki Books. Along with teaching from the Suzuki Book, I will supplement their learning with an etude book such as Wohlfahrt and Kreutzer. After a certain point, I will start working on pieces and concertos not in the Suzuki books anymore. When the students become advanced, they usually have a goal with what they want to do with music. I will do everything I can to help them achieve this goal and find a way to keep the lessons engaging. If I am starting out with an adult student, I would want to find out what they are interested in achieving and work with them towards their goal. For beginners and advanced students, I want to keep them engaged and share my love of music with them.
With my students, I always try to find what they want to achieve and tailor my lessons towards that. I always love seeing my students improve and teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs. I set weekly goals for my students, and keep track of their progress in personal journals. Each student is different, and progress will vary from student to student. It is my job to make sure the student is always challenged and strives to do their best. The weekly goals I set for my students is one of the ways I ensure this, and acknowledging their progress will hopefully fuel their desire to learn.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
