About Samuel


Bio

As a music performer and instructor, I have found that mathematics helps understand and appreciate certain aspects of Music such as theory and composition. I've recently graduated from Vanguard University with a BM in Guitar performance with a 3.9 GPA and I'm looking forward to continuing my education with a Master's Degree. I've also taken various math courses up to Calculus 3 just for the enjoyment and challenge, of which I received A's. I am proficient in teaching guitar, piano, sight...

As a music performer and instructor, I have found that mathematics helps understand and appreciate certain aspects of Music such as theory and composition. I've recently graduated from Vanguard University with a BM in Guitar performance with a 3.9 GPA and I'm looking forward to continuing my education with a Master's Degree. I've also taken various math courses up to Calculus 3 just for the enjoyment and challenge, of which I received A's. I am proficient in teaching guitar, piano, sight singing/reading, music theory and composition. I am also proficient in teaching mathematics up to the Calculus level.

Volunteering at a couple of Elementary schools for over 200 hours and giving private lessons to music students, I have learned to work with students in various subjects. My teaching method is clear and productive, meaning I will show you results so long as the student practices what they learn on a daily basis. My students may also record our sessions so that they can always keep a fresh memory of what was learned. In addition to lessons, I will keep in touch with students throughout the week through calls, emails, or text regarding on how they are coming along in their studies. I intend to keep a progress record of how much a student has improved in their subjects so as to provide an incentive to keep learning and advancing in their studies.

I take learning very seriously and I do not take shortcuts when it comes to learning a subject. Students will learn how to tackle problems with effectiveness and they will develop a clear understanding of their respective subjects.
