Dr. Lukas--Music, Music Theory, Composition, English, Literature, Writing, Art History.

I have taught music for over 15 years and have experience from kindergarten to college. I have taught all branches of Music, AP Music Theory, AP Art History, Writing, Grammar, and Literature. I have a Ph. D. and Master's from U.C.S.D. My main interests in pedagogy relate to critical thinking skills, cultural literacy, and the empowerment of the individual that comes from engagement—that is, the deep immersion in a topic and all of the issues surrounding it, drawing upon the vital crafts of writing, speaking, and negotiating personal difference. I am also committed to the consideration and articulation (again, written and spoken) of the relation of one’s outlooks, origins, and experiences to these topics of study. I have been teaching for 18 years, and have tutored in the above subjects.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Art History

I have an extensive background in art history, and have taught AP Art History at the high school level and taught several art history units at the college level.

Composition (Music)

I am an active composer, and hold a master's and doctorate from UCSD in composition. I have worked as a composition teacher for over 15 years. I'm eager to help anyone looking to learn more about writing music!

Ear Training

I have taught ear training to students of all levels, from grade school to college students. I have taught it as a separate class, and as part of other courses like AP Music Theory. I teach it very well, and can help you!

Music History

I have taught music history for over 15 years. I hold a masters and doctoral degree in music from UCSD. I am very able to make the seemingly daunting subject of music history seem alive and interesting, and I work with students of all levels.
