- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing reflects the time and energy I put into each session, both with the student and outside of session hours. I love what I do, and I care deeply about helping others. My hourly rate represents what I need to sustain myself and continue offering the services I offer.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I typically spend extra time in the first sessions getting to know my students. I believe it's important to develop a personal connection with the student, which is certainly something that develops over time, but I like to begin building that connection and trust right from the get-go. I also spend extra time in the early sessions exploring what learning methods the student responds to best, which informs how I instruct.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My undergraduate studies at Columbia University were in Sustainable Development, which is a field at the intersection of environmental science, politics, and economics. Because of my degree (and just an all-around interest in math and science), I have taken courses in calculus, statistics, physics, and chemistry. I completed my graduate studies at Manhattan School of Music, where I studied opera and voice. I have participated in numerous apprenticeship programs, and have performed roles all over the country, with companies such as San Diego Opera, Virginia Opera, Palm Beach Opera, and Central City Opera. I have been teaching math and singing for some time now, and I have refined my teaching style as a result. I have, of course, been influenced by wonderful teachers and professors along the way!
