Hello prospective student/and/or parent of prospective student:
I'm so glad you're reading my profile. I wanted to let you know that my teaching style starts at the point of getting to know you and you're learning style as much as possible. Before we open up any book, I will usually meet with you and find out what it is you want to learn, how you learn, what works for you and what doesn't, how you like to learn, and what I can do to make your learning experience enjoyable and rewarding.
After that is established, I will then set out to find out how much you already know about the subject so that I am teaching you in a style and at a level that is comfortable for you.
I use a variety of methods in teaching; some computer work, book work, audio/visual combined with drills and practice. We will use a goal setting approach in each lesson category so you will have a landmark of achievement, and will know firsthand that you are learning and getting better at what you set out to do. I take a hands on approach to teaching, and will constantly monitor the student's progress. I have taught from ages 10 on up to 70.
I have found out in my days as a student, that some teachers I had taught one way and weren't flexible to adapt to the different ways each of us learn. I decided that when I became a teacher, I was going to do better than that.
I have a Masters Degree in Business, years of private music classes, over 20 years of music industry experience, and have been teaching GED and business curriculum since 1998.
I will be dedicated to helping you achieve.
