I have taught math and science as a tutor since 1989. I am a retired state certified teacher in Texas both in composite high school science and mathematics.

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.

Flute

I have taught flute and clarinet lessons since the mid-'80s with many students placing very high in local and state competitions. I am also very experienced as an orchestral soloist. I use proven lesson studies to help students improve musicianship step-by-step including Pares Scales, Rubank Studies/Duets, and various Etude study books.
