I am Allen, a family practice doctor wanting to tutor those who might benefit from my years of training, skills and knowledge. I do have 25 years of education, and 24 years of clinical and hospital experience. I am versatile, and love to teach children, teens, adults alike. If you are wanting to have help in biology, anatomy, basic science, health studies, or medical studies then perhaps I could help. I also have no small skills in English, Dragon Naturally Speaking, grammar, Bible studies, piano, sight reading, ear training for music, Spanish and other subjects. I delight to help some growing mind or inquisitive grownup get excited about their learning. It is a joy to tutor in composition of music, or even in playing the piano by note or ear, or teaching someone to do improvisational composition on the keyboard.
In training for my vocation I have been down many paths. I have studied classical piano and won a scholarship to a prestigious college music program. I have studied Italian as well as Spanish. I have done agricultural research on the anatomy of the peach tree borer moth, edited and proofread a scientific articles, pastored a small church, played clarinet in a traveling youth group, and many experiences. I have no trouble relating to anyone, and am adept at explaining the difficult to understand things in a teaching situation. I have the mind of a scientist and the soul of a humanitarian and artist.
Please give me a try if I am near your area. I have plenty of studio room in which to teach any topic and even a group, and an electric piano; but even adults would require a chaperone, or spouse. I am perfectly willing to tutor over the internet. I am willing to travel to the right setting in a home if desired. A world of learning is always waiting for all of us of all ages, and when it is your chosen field, or if you are wanting a leg up, it can be exhilarating.
I have pastored a church for seven years which required much study of scripture, and much expository preparation; as well as having been taught myself since childhood.
I have been an avid student of the Bible for 30 years, and am familiar with most texts and their meanings and characters and events and their place in the whole context of the Bible, whether King James or other translations.
I have studied scriptures at the college level, and I am familiar with its soaring significance in history, language, art, literature, religion, and culture.
I have perfect relative pitch, and am able to teach others how to achieve relative pitch on the keyboard and in voice according to the assigned interval(s). I learned to play piano on my own starting even at age seven, picking out complicated tunes on the piano. I learned to play piano well by ear at age 12 and began playing in church, and can play even complicated standard compositions after listening, without having the score. I can compose improvisationally on the keyboard, which is quite enjoyable, and have greater than 400 compositions and also some songs.
I have studied musical theory, keyboard technique, classical piano and voice, and am well qualified to instruct in music, as well as piano.
I have played bassoon, clarinet, saxophone, piano and organ; been a semiprofessional clarinetist; have perfect pitch and a fine singing voice; and have been church solist and musician for more than 30 years.
I can compose music, even improvisationally, and have composed greater than 400 compositions, as well as written songs. I understand the beginner's angst also, and am very patient and not overdemanding. I am an accomplished pianist and musician.
I am an accomplished pianist, and have studied classical piano at the college level with a scholarship in music, as well as being church pianist for greater than 30 years. I learned piano first at the age of twelve by myself and by ear, and was playing in church within 3 months, so I am a bit of a mini-prodigy. My knowledge of musical theory and notation is sound. In any event my love of the piano is extraordinary, and I want to pass that love and knowledge of the keyboard along to others.
