ExperienceMy name is Adrienne Olson. I have experience and knowledge in the fields of English, composition, English and American literature, reading comprehension, verbal comprehension, and English for non-native speakers (especially German).
Much of my education is in the field of music; however, I have composed extensive papers on various topics and am fluent in both AP and Chicago Manual of Style. I am also familiar with the German language and have experience translating from German into English.
1) B.A. from Southern Adventist University (1992) major: music, minor: English (English minor included advanced composition courses, creative writing, English and American literature; composed numerous research papers–AP style)
2) M.M. degree from the New England Conservatory of Music (1994)

I have taught classes in both Music and English on an adjunct basis, but enjoy working with students on an individual basis so that I can target their specific educational goals. I am passionate about learning as a lifetime goal.
HobbiesI am savvy and persistent. I enjoy assisting students in their journey of learning and will not rest until their educational goal has been met. I enjoy reading, hiking, travelling, playing the organ and piano, and spending time with family.
