My name is Ash, and I may be the ideal tutor for you! I am experienced in several topics which I have broken down into sections by topic. Hope it helps you make an informed decision :)
I have extensive expertise in MUSIC.
I recently relocated from Florida where I have worked with some of the biggest names in Jazz, Gospel and Hip Hop as a professional musician (Guitarist). With 30 years of playing experience combined with 20 years of teaching experience, I have taught hundreds of students. I have had students who went on to study at Berklee and are presently on tour. Besides teaching one on one, I also have a lot of experience teaching large groups. I have experience with students of all ages from 6 to 85, including experience with individuals who have special needs.
In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and concrete experiences in addition to books and resources. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student. I teach a wide variety of techniques on either acoustic or electric guitar. Including music theory and improvisation. I can tailor the curriculum around you, the student, because everyone learns differently.
I have extensive expertise in GRAPHIC DESIGN.
