Classical Vocalist uses language skills to assist in linguistic areas of education!

Methodology

The greatest teachers are ones who learn from their students. The greatest gift you can give a student is to keep trying to communicate until the student understands, can make progress, and be successful. Any less effort is incomplete.

Background

I am an artist, musician, and lover of language arts and all things organic and true! I bring great skill to the areas of speech, diction, accent coaching, speech clarity in several different languages, but English being my first.
