About Samuel

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.

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.

Composition (Music)

I have studied under three composition instructors during my undergraduate career as a guitar performance major at Vanguard University. I have played my compositions nationally and I am an active composer. Besides teaching how to play music, I have taught musicians how to write and organize their musical ideas on recordings and staff paper.

Guitar

I have studied under seasoned and touring guitar instructors during my undergraduate career and have earned my Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance. I have performed, toured nationally, and recorded music with both with the Vanguard Guitar Ensemble and quartet. I have learned the finer points of guitar playing and I am qualified to teach anywhere from beginners to advanced players.

Great tutor

Great tutor. He replied to e-mails promptly, showed up on-time and even spent a few minutes extra at the end of the session. My teenage son, who's getting the tutoring, mentioned that Samuel explained the concepts very well. It is apparent that Samuel enjoys math and wants to help others understand the concepts. We appreciate his tutoring style!
