About this pro

As a teacher, my passion for learning motivates me to always do better. "I'm a learning designer!" 

Children and adults alike catch my spirit and have a blast learning.  From the joy of tying shoes to playing the blues - everything in between.

I have several degrees in education and a background in liberal arts, math and music.

In addition, I write poetry - which goes hand-in-hand with music composition.  

I offer one FREE lesson - please ask me about the fine print on that ;)

I enjoy when the lights go on and the student has the "ahh ha" moment!

    Ms. Cristie did a great job teaching piano to our daughters. They really enjoyed learning from her. She was patient and thorough. She did a great job!

    Mrs. Cristie helped our daughter to blossom as a student. She was patient with Katie, used the perfect balance of praise and positive attention. She brought learning manipulative to keep the lesson entertaining and to help with understanding. Now our daughter is an avid reader, loves creative writing and thinks math is fun!
