About Benjamin

Greetings potential students. I want to start by telling you my simple goal, which is to help you clearly understand the subject you want to learn. I am good at catering instruction to each individual so that they can understand it clearly.

Microsoft Excel/Word:
At Armstrong College I received certifications from Microsoft on Excel and Word. I work at the Walmart Home Office in the Modular Development field, and I deal with Excel as about 90& of my job, on a very advanced level. I can teach everything that you would want to learn and even things that you didn't know you could learn about Excel.

Music Theory:
When I started learning music theory in 2007 as a Junior in high school, I will be honest - I struggled to comprehend many of the principles I was being taught. Over the course of a year, I stumbled around and did they best I could. But many principles of music theory require a depth of understand that just wasn't given to me in a year-long AP course in high school.

Following my early experience with music theory, I spent 2 years at College of the Ozarks. There, I studied music and was seeking an education degree. At the college level, music theory finally made sense to me! I actually grew to really enjoy it and appreciate it! I took Music Theory 1, 2, and 3 and Aural Training 1, 2, and 3, all with high marks.

After College of the Ozarks, I went to a private college in Oklahoma, Armstrong College, and studied liberal arts, public speaking, and theology. I set up a 5 course study of music theory, during my spare time, for fellow students.

Trumpet:
I have played trumpet for 13 years. 7 years were in secondary school and 2 years were in college. I have played in concert bands, jazz bands, marching bands, and small ensembles. I specialized in trumpet as a Music major at College of the Ozarks for 2 years where I deeply practiced and learned the methods required to be proficient in trumpet. I understand especially what it takes to develop an embouchure, as I have had to relearn 3 times due to braces and bad embouchure placement. I have taken Aural Training 1, 2, and 3 and am very proficient at sight reading, and teaching sight reading to aspiring musicians. Arban's Trumpet Conservatory is my textbook. All of these things make me a very apt trumpet tutor.

Looking forward to sharing some knowledge with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I have received certification from Microsoft for Microsoft Excel. I received hands on training for Excel at Armstrong College, in Edmond, Oklahoma and passed the Microsoft test. I also use Excel on a professional level at my job. I am a Modular Specialist at the Walmart Home Office, so I deal with every part of Excel on a very advanced level. I could be of great practical assistance as a tutor for Excel for any student. I also have experience writing advanced macros as part of my job.

Microsoft Word

I have a certification from Microsoft for Microsoft Word. I received that certification after a full semester of hands on instruction at Armstrong College in Edmond, Oklahoma and taking the Microsoft test on it. I also have used Word personally for quite a long time and with writing papers during 4 years total of college.

Music Theory

I have studied Music Theory extensively for over 3 years (6 semesters) total of received instruction, and Aural Training, which is a part of Music Theory, for 3 semesters. I've passed up to Music Theory 3 and Aural Training 3 at College of the Ozarks, and did so with good grades. I write music personally and enjoy analyzing music. I have conducted lessons while at another college, Armstrong College, for other students interested in the subject, so I have experience teaching this subject as well. I have also studied and passed an examination on piano, for the purpose of being proficient enough to teach music.

Trumpet

I have played trumpet for 13 years. 7 years were in secondary school and 2 years were in college. I have played in concert bands, jazz bands, marching bands, and small ensembles. I specialized in trumpet as a Music major at College of the Ozarks for 2 years where I deeply practiced and learned the methods required to be proficient in trumpet. I understand especially what it takes to develop an embouchure, as I have had to relearn 3 times due to braces and bad embouchure placement.
