English

Currently, I am teaching GED language arts and social studies at Alvin Community Pearland campus. I have an extensive reading and arts background in English and some German literature. Using a "one to one" model, I can develop strategies based on your learning style and preference.

GED

I am currently teaching GED language arts and social studies for Alvin Community College System at the Pearland annex. I am very familiar with the resources, content, and teaching strategies commensurate the Texas GED book and test.

General Music

I have an all level, lifetime Texas certification, with over ten years of experience managing performing ensembles and students in classroom and UIL functions. I hold a Bachelor of Music from Texas A&M Corpus Christie and completed the first of three levels of Kodaly Certification at Southwest Texas State University (Texas States University). I employ gentle but effective techniques to foster musicianship providing constructive feedback.

Songwriting

I hold an all level, lifetime Texas certification in music. I have a Bachelor of Music from Texas A&M Corpus Christie and was awarded a first level Kodaly Certification at Southwest Texas State University (Texas States University).

A protege of Grammy award winning songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore, I have completed 3 of his songwriting workshops at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies and one at the Esalen Institute at Big Sur. In the 80's and early 90's, I was a regular at the Kerrville festivals where I did workshops with Steve Ceskin, Gail Davies, et. al.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
