    Hello Workawayers, I am Michelle, a vegetarian, and a teacher. I teach mainly music (Piano, Violin and Singing), and also Mathematics.

    My home is the most suitable for those who are keen to learn piano as a new instrument, or those who are seeking to further improve their musical skills.

    I live in a local government housing area. In my building, you will see many local people and the way of their daily life. I am located in Georgetown, Penang Island. My building is very near the sea.

    My home is vegetarian home. Meat and Seafood are not allowed.

    On fridays, saturdays and sundays, children come to my home to learn music. You are allowed to play music on weekdays 10am - 8pm only

    I have reduced mobility as I have partially torn 6 of my ligaments in both knees. I cannot stand for a long period of time, walk a long distance, kneel and squat. Therefore, I do not go out much unless if I have to. During my free time, I draw and colour, read books and enjoy spending time with the children.
