My name is Maya Holtham. I recently graduated from Brooklyn Friends School and I am a college student at NYU currently working toward a double degree in Cello Performance and Mathematics. My area of expertise is cello, which I have been playing for ten years and teaching for four. I have also provided math and reading tutoring along with child care over the past three years. I was trained by former cello teachers to individualize lessons to the student's interests and abilities as well as their areas of growth. When starting with a new student, I try to learn more about their hobbies, learning style and interests to make a tutoring plan best suited to them as well as an agenda that we would work toward throughout the year. As a performing arts student who has recently completed the high school and college application and audition process, I am passionate about helping other young performers navigate the daunting processes they may encounter in seeking higher education in the performing arts. By charting the students' growth and making their learning experience enjoyable, I hope that I can provide some of the help that parents and families need during these uncertain times.
