Music Teaching

In addition to actively performing as a violinist, I offer individual lessons and group coaching. I have been a faculty member of the Austin Chamber Music Center since 2016, and also run a private studio for violin students of all ages and ability levels. My teaching method is rooted in the Suzuki Method. I have taught students all over the world (Austin, London, Istanbul, Xi'an, and Hong Kong) ages 4 through 82—I have even taught in Mandarin Chinese! Music is an incredible form of global communication, and the process of learning to play the violin fosters creativity, discipline, and self-expression. It's also social and fun! I absolutely enjoy teaching music and am eager to nurture that passion in others.

Academic and Professional Tuition and Mentorship

I have provided support for students and job applicants since 2010 in various capacities, including:
  • Undergraduate, graduate, and fellowship application mentoring
  • Cover letter and resume editing
  • Interview coaching
  • Preparation for standardized tests (ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, TOEFL, IGSCE)
  • Academic subject tutoring
  • Logo and letterhead design
I am currently employed by Crimson Education as a Senior Tutor, Application Mentor, and Extracurricular and Leadership Consultant. In these roles, I work one-on-one with students in twelve countries in subjects including SAT General and Subject Tests, ACT, TOEFL, GSCE/IGSCE, essay and personal statement writing, and US university admissions. I also teach group classes and give public presentations on related subjects, such as building a strong extracurricular profile for US university admissions.
