About Ian

I am currently enrolled in college about to receive my AA this semester. I am an English major and feel I can provide a comfortable and relaxed learning environment. I've worked with children from elementary to high school. I've tutored students from high school to college. I focus on textual analysis, literary theory, writing, grammar, and proofreading. I'm a patient person and try to be comforting in order to expel any anxiety or lack of confidence.

I learned to speak both english and Spanish simultaneously as a child. I'm currently taking french 102 in college and expect to be fluent in a couple years. I would definitely consider my self fluent in Spanish. I'm proud in my pronunciation of languages, and I wish to help people in this area.

I've taken a small number of lessons before and know the struggle of beginning to learn an instrument. I believe music is forever a learning experience and I believe I can provide the proper insight into players intentions while also incorporating music theory. I've been a self taught player for nearly 7 years and still practicing music theory.

Thanks for checking out my profile, I hope I'm what you're looking for. Please consider and Thank you for your time.

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.

English

I've had experience tutoring and assisting students from high school through college. English is my major, so this is my specialty. I can aid students in analysis, theory, writing, grammar, and structure. I'm patient and aim to provide a comfortable experience.

Guitar

I have strong personal understanding of music theory and previous experience taking lessons, which encouraged me to teach my self. I expect my students to pursue music on their own eventually, and after they've been exposed to the material in an organic way. I've been playing for nearly 7 years and continue to study theory. My method won't be dull or strenuous, but instead be relaxed and exciting. Everyone wants to see results fast and I'm confident we will. We'll begin by learning a popular or favorite song then analyze the patterns, notes, and theory behind the song. Snippets of theory in a fun music lesson. Reading music won't be a priority but I can include it into the lesson if requested. That being said, personally I believe students should exercise their ear by listening to the music in order for it to become habitual. I've taught myself and I have shared my insight with friends and relatives.

Proofreading

I'm majoring in English and revision is a major component to writing coherently and efficiently. I've proofread a plethora of writing assignments, so it becomes familiar after so much. I can adapt to each student's needs and explain the subject in a simply way.

Spanish

I've tutored siblings and friends in Spanish from a High School level to a college level. I learned Spanish simultaneously with English at home.
