I'm an experienced private tutor and could help with a variety of subjects such as history, philosophy, psychology, music, and humanities. My specialty is conversational English for shy, introverted people of all ages who need special attention with pronunciation, vocabulary, and proper grammar. I have coached Japanese businessmen in conversational English to build confidence with proper pronunciation. I’m a proven proofreader in the corporate world with a 99.9% accuracy rating. I am able to help proofread and suggest changes to written papers in order to make them more concise for the reader.
As a undergraduate student, I studied music theory and aural skills. I have relative perfect pitch and can listen to a piece of music and make suggestions on dynamics and phrasing. I can coach a music student by listening to their playing and make suggestions on how to improve their stage presence, especially in a competitive environment.
I also have a minor in physical education and can coach students in health and fitness. I’m a seasoned tennis player who can assist anyone that would like to learn to play tennis and better their game. I have also played competitive baseball and can teach anyone to hit live pitching and work on fielding.
In closing, I believe most learning is 80% attitude and 20% aptitude. I can tutor and coach on both. I can build the confidence of the student by continually monitoring their progress, affirming their successes, and motivate them to be their very best.
