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.

I am a member of ASCAP. I have more than one hundred compositions registered with The Library of Congress. I have had at least forty of my compositions recorded. I have written my own book on songwriting, and I have had students studying song-writing with me.


I have taught English in the Chicago Public Schools. I am a published author as a poet, playwright. I had a short story published in 2012, and I recently published a novel. I have taught remedial reading.


I have been a professional musician for more than five decades performing on sax, clarinet, and flute. I have been a flute teacher for the past twelve years. I have recorded many times on flute.

I have been a professional musician for more than five decades. I was a musician in the army, and I played in band in college; I toured the USA with many famous orchestras. I have composed, taught and recorded extensively. I am a member of ASCAP.


I have been playing oboe for the past thirty years, and I have been teaching oboe for the

From 1971 to 1973, I taught phonics and remedial reading at Marshal upper grade school in Chicago. As a linguist, poet, and playwright, I am keenly aware of the nuances of phonics. I have taught English, French, German, and Spanish in the past several years, where I've put great emphasis on phonics.
