Additionally, I've been teaching voice/piano/music theory through my own private studio for the past 5 years. I have experience working with students of all ages and abilities. I have additional experience as a collegiate teaching assistant at NYU for the undergraduate course Song Analysis II with Professor Annika Boras. In high school, I was President of Student Council, President of the National Honor Society, and an active member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
I have worked as a freelance voice, piano, and music theory teacher for the past five years out of my private voice studio. I also regularly tutor middle-high school students on mathematics (all levels: algebra, pre-calculus, statistics, basic math), writing/English (all levels: literature analysis, grammar, SAT prep, etc.), music theory, and guitar & piano performance. I occasionally work as a freelance editor and dramaturg for both academic and creative projects. During my time as a student at NYU, I worked as a teaching assistant for Song Analysis II- a course dedicated to improving the analytical and performance skills of musical theatre undergraduate students. I was also a volunteer tutor throughout the duration of my high school career, during which I worked with students of all abilities in all subjects (AP-basic: math, science, English, humanities). I tutored PA Public Schools Algebra I-II (all difficulty levels), Guitar Performance, and Music Theory curriculums during the past semester via Zoom and FaceTime. I regularly teach voice lessons through Zoom. I have experience working with children with autism, Down syndrome, and ADHD.
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I volunteered for 4 years as a Mathematics, Chemistry, English, Literature, and Music Theory tutor through an academic program at my high school. It was through this enriching program that I had the opportunity to foster relationships with students of all abilities, backgrounds, and academic affinities. In addition to tutoring Advanced Placement subjects, I also worked with my peers within the ESL and Fundamentals of Learning curriculums at my school- a vastly underserved group of students. I am passionate about ensuring the presence of quality, comprehensive academic guidance for students of all backgrounds and abilities. I also spent much of my adolescence and college career volunteering at various non-profit theaters in my community. The theater is where I began my community-based education in the performing arts; its influence grounds my intersectional teaching praxis. I believe strongly in the educational sovereignty of the performing arts as a field of study. I continually strive to educate my students through an intersectional lens that values engagement with critical thought.
