Teaching Philosophy

A highly adaptive and methodical approach using a growth mindset resulting in positive results and the joy of progressing through hard work. I use all of my training both as a pedagogue and experienced performer to help my students grow and learn, no matter their current ability or age.


I love to cook delicious food for friends and loved ones. I love to read and ride my bike all over the DMV.
