I like to talk with my students before diving into learning to try and gauge their preferred learning style. This helps me to adapt my teaching to better fit their needs.
I am an excellent communicator, am very passionate about music, and am always patient with my students.
My academic background has been focused in the Life Sciences. I aspire to pursue med school following my undergraduate degree.
Since the age of 3 years, I have been playing the violin. I have completed all the RCM violin exams and have performed in the Kiwanis and other music festivals, winning gold medals. I have taught the violin to over 5 students, some of which have had intellectual disabilities. I am a passionate musician and find my innate patience and loving personality helps me teach and guide others in their musical pursuits.
