I tailor my lessons to each student's particular needs and desires and make each lesson a fun, educational experience sans stress. I have been teaching privately, as well as singing and acting professionally, for decades, and have received rave reviews from many of my previous students, some of whom remain dear friends. I thoroughly love teaching. Please note I do not teach children or anyone under the age of 18. And generally I do not travel to lessons but teach out of my studio in Beaverton.
Teaching is a gift. The payback is in watching a student's eyes and overall facial expressions when they get something...totally understanding the concept. It's magic.
There are no reviews yet
First, an email interview, to learn what the student has in mind to accomplish.
Next, proceed with individual learning techniques. I use my own workbooks.
Gently keep pushing them to learn and absorb more.
Make sure the student continues to enjoy what they're doing.
