About Adam

I am a band director for the DeKalb County Eastern Community School District. Besides teaching music/band courses, I am also licensed to teach up through high school math. I am a recent graduate of IPFW and a long-time resident of northeast Indiana, where I have privately/publicly tutored for several years.

I am passionate about helping students to embrace significant challenges. As a teacher, I believe that all students are capable of achieving much more than they believe, and I eagerly seek to devote my energy in order to help students achieve their goals.

I am certified to tutor math from elementary to high school levels. I have a special emphasis in algebra and statistics, but I also have a passion for elementary mathematics and basic calculus.

My career working with students from grades 5-12 requires me to be an expert teaching all instruments at a beginning level and requires me to be able to teach advanced music. I also am a specialist in music theory/music history. My primary instruments are trumpet and piano/organ, but I can double on all of the band instruments.

I hope to be of service in any way possible. Through this system, please feel free to ask any questions that come to mind, and I hope to make sure that you are comfortable and able to learn/succeed. I will do everything in my power to ensure that you are successful, and if you share this goal, then we will be able to make large strides in your future success!

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 a bachelors degree in instrumental music education with a minor in mathematics. This degree required proficiency in ear training which occurred over the course of two years.

I have perfect pitch and the ability to teach relative pitch and audiation to students through varying means.

Piano

I have a bachelors degree in instrumental music education with a minor in mathematics. In this degree, my secondary instrument was organ. I took lessons for 5 years at a collegiate level and also acquired a piano pedagogy certification during my degree.

I have been playing piano since the age of eight and still actively accompany and perform for various functions.

Trumpet

I have a bachelors degree in instrumental music education with a minor in mathematics. In this degree, my primary instrument was the trumpet, and I spent 5 years in lessons whilst giving a recital in order to meet the standard requirements for my degree.

I have been playing the trumpet since the age of ten and play both at an amateur and professional level in the Northeast Indiana area.
