About Ronald

I am a Stetson University graduate with a degree in education. I also attended the University of South Florida where I studied elementary education. I have taught in the public school system for a few years with an emphasis on music and primary grades. I have also taught adult education.

I also worked at Sylvan where I was director of education. I ran students through a battery of tests to determine skill gaps, taught the students as well as conferenced with parents letting them know of their child's progress. During my tenure at Sylvan I took the time to understand the child's needs as well as what they brought to the table. I like to believe that I am not only understanding but patient.

Each child learns different and an effective teacher will realize this and plan accordingly to achieved the desired outcome. Also, I believe a student needs to be engaged the most time possible.

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.

Ear Training

I have taken ear training classes in college from basic level to advanced. I can take dictation of a melody and meter just by listening. I am also able to solfege the melody.
