American History

I have been studying American History since grade school. When I was in high school, I passed the AP American History exam with a perfect score. I began tutoring American History for all age groups for 4 years now. Whether you are in grade school or college level American History classes, I make sure that that you are successful in the class by means of really breaking down the content of what is being taught in the class.

Baseball

I have been active in baseball during my high school and college years. I've been on varsity baseball during high school as well as being active on the community baseball team.

I teach techniques for batting, fielding, and pitching positions.

Throughout my high school and college, I was very active in the community basketball teams and also for the intramural games. Since attending NEIU, I have been coaching basketball camps for young kids to even young adults.

For all the students I tutor, I break down the topic so that is easier to understand. My goal is to always make sure that my students do well.

I tutor/teach music composition in very basic structural foundations. For example I teach music composition starting with the practices of early music such as Medieval and Renaissance. Then I start expanding the music composition spectrum by introducing composition practices of the Baroque Era till Mid 20th Century. Many of my students have written several wonderful compositions with my guidance.

When it comes to both sight singing and ear training, I make sure those who I tutor/teach get the basics down pat, meaning that I have the individuals know their intervals sufficiently and know the difference between a major, minor, augmented, and diminished chord(audibly). Then, I would focus on dictations for those who range from very beginner to advance levels.
