I have BA in English from UCSB.
I have been using computers for probably 35 years now- both Macs and PC's.

Also skilled with social networking including Facebook, Blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.
I have been reading music, singing and playing the violin as well as a little piano for most of my life. Would love to teach students to read music, to sing including harmony, beginning violin, and to sight read. I could easily help students learn their vocal parts.
I have been singing in choirs and other musical genres since I was 5. In junior and high school, I was in 3-4 musical groups as well as performed in musicals. I studied voice at UCSB and have been studying voice privately as well as performance singing for the last 10 years.
I was an English major and I love to tutor ESL. I speak French and enough Spanish to make it easier for a student. Just finished tutoring 2 Chinese students for over a year.
I have been playing the violin for 38 years. I studied with two different teachers privately for over 15 years and have been playing first violin in the Santa Barbara City College for over 35 years.
I have owned an operated a small business successfully for 32 years. I do all my own accounting, billing, advertising, etc. and would love to help someone who is thinking of starting or considering a new business or improving on a business they already have.
