Hello! My name is Yeji or Christina. I am a music educator for k-12th grade with license to teach from Indiana University Jacobs of Music. I am very eager to continue teaching as it is my passion. I love teaching children and impacting their education in multiple ways. As a teacher, I am very enthusiastic and passionate about what I teach and work for.
As a pianist, I took classes from IU that broadened my capability as a teacher to teach everything from general, choral, and instrumental music. I had my senior piano solo recital. I have a diverse range of performing experiences as a vocalist, including Opera, International Vocal Ensemble, and show choirs. With voice lessons, I have learned a lot about singing and being able to teach healthy singing. As an instrumentalist, I played in band ensemble for 10 years and have also taken all the instrumental technique classes that study instruments by families in depth. With all of my education and natural abilities to be a music teacher, I would like this school to be part of my dream to show my enthusiasm for children and the hope to help them become the leaders of the world.
As an educated teacher, it is my responsibility to engage students with the variety of needs. With the engaging lessons that is carefully thought-out and well-organized, I plan to incorporate all students with visual, aural, and kinesthetic learnings. I fully understand that my lesson will need the flexibility and will be prepared for all situations such as flexible plan for low-level learning students, high-achieving students, and other activities for when the students are not responding to the original activity. Rather than being stubborn with my lessons, I believe strongly in constant changing of the lessons in ways that could help support the varied needs of the students as the teacher gets to know the individual students better to meet the needs.
As a professional teacher, I love sharing the joy of music with the students. As part of my job, it is to educate the students in order to give them enough knowledge to enjoy music on their own. Helping the children enjoy music requires making the lesson content in the way that is adaptive for the students. Finding things that the students can connect to, can have fun with, and can enjoy learning will be the strategies that I would utilize to make the learning meaningful, relevant, and exciting for all learners. For example, I will incorporate learning rhythms to a beat or a song that the students will enjoy listening to. It is very easy to turn it into a game or a fun challenge for the students. When learning how to read music on staff line, my lesson will always incorporate some kind of fun projects or activity such as putting fruit loops noteheads on string staff lines. Learning never demands seriousness all the time. When there is time to learn, there is always opportunities to use the knowledge in a creative and exciting way.
The kids like her. We've only had two lessons.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
