About LARRY

The most important thing is not what the teacher knows but what the student needs to learn, and how to get there! Each student is different. You'll find I'm alert and keen to what motivates and informs each person as an individual.

I learned Spanish in grade school and followed up with 4 years and much practice after that. I can get you through the rough parts!

Also, I have taught advanced S.E.E. Signing Exact English to classes of varying skill levels and ages in a classroom setting and made it fun.

Music has been a part of my life since youth. I taught myself piano and have had a great semi-professional career with that. As well, I have played in combos and had a touring country western band for 6 years. I can read music and teach principles not often covered.

English has been a love and passion since my childhood. I'll share what I know.

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.

Piano

I took three lessons when I was around 10-12 years old, then stopped. I taught myself to read and play by ear. I have a memorized repertoire of over 1000 songs and can play most songs in any key. I understand theory and composition. I have taught numerous folks how to play by ear. I have played several hundreds of performances over the years, whether accompaniment, cocktail piano, country, gospel, jazz, etc. I enjoy teaching and meet people where they're at!
