About William


Bio

I am registering with WyzAnt as a general academic tutor and as a provider for two distinct skill sets.

I was an excellent student in school and am well-versed in general academic subjects like math and reading. I have worked as a classroom teacher, lecturer, and one-on-one tutor. As a father of three nearly grown kids with varying school difficulties, I have experienced the drama of elementary, middle and high school as a parent.

I am registering with WyzAnt as a general academic tutor and as a provider for two distinct skill sets.

I was an excellent student in school and am well-versed in general academic subjects like math and reading. I have worked as a classroom teacher, lecturer, and one-on-one tutor. As a father of three nearly grown kids with varying school difficulties, I have experienced the drama of elementary, middle and high school as a parent.

I have been a music teacher for 30 years, in classroom and one-on-one settings. My music lesson clientele consists of elementary, middle and high school students and adults from diverse economic and social backgrounds at all levels of experience. I offer lessons for piano, electric bass, guitar, voice, and arranging/composition/theory. Styles include: jazz, gospel, rock, sacred, folk, and other contemporary genres. I use my experience as a freelance musician in my teaching. I have a Master's in Jazz Piano and currently play keyboard for a soft-rock band, lead worship for an African-American church and direct the choir for a large-scale city-wide annual event. In addition to private teaching and performing, I do transcription, arranging, workshops and studio session work.

I have worked in multiple tech jobs since 1979. I have experience in a variety of platforms, but my strongest work is with MS Access and VB which I have worked with for more than 15 years. I have been an application developer for government agencies, non-profits and small businesses. Past and ongoing projects include the maintenance and enhancement of:
•A Project Tracking System for a telecommunications provider that services government and commercial installations
•A student information system for a community adult education program
•Reporting systems for violence studies at State department
•Rental agreement tracking system for real estate company
Tools: Primarily MS Access with VBA, DOS, other MS Office Applications

I also have extensive experience with and advanced knowledge of the rest of the MS office suite, especially PowerPoint.

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I have extensive experience with Biblical studies. Beside undergrad and grad level classes, I have been an active student of the Bible (both testaments) since I was a teen. I consistently score very highly on Bible trivia games, and am very comfortable using tools like Strong's concordance and lexicons. I have been a teacher in the Christian community for more than 20 years. When I co-pastored a church, I regularly taught from the Bible. In my current church, I am on the preaching rotation and been studying the concepts of exegetic preaching. My favorite book is Habakkuk, my favorite chapter is Psalm 117, my favorite verse is Isa 43:19. While reared on the KJV, I use multiple translations including the under-valued Phillips new testament.

General Music

I have been playing music for 50 years. I have a masters in jazz piano and 35+ years experience as a church musician. I currently co-lead a worship team, teach private lessons and play in a band.
Guitar,

Guitar

I have been playing for more than 40 years and have an active roster of satisfied students. I play both acoustic and electric guitars and teach many styles, including rock, folks, pop, gospel, and beginner jazz. I also have proficiency in solo guitar. I am a well-known worship leader and use my 12-string frequently to lead small and large group singing. I work with intermediate students to expand their chord vocabulary, focusing on both open chord forms and movable forms, including 4-note jazz chords. I also work to help with finger picking techniques ultimately using all 5 fingers of the picking hand. I also focus on the cycle of fifths and encourage students to write music using the basics of diatonic harmonic theory. I use the cycle to teach transposition and challenge intermediate students to use it to learn to play songs in less guitar-friendly keys. In my teaching, I provide students with examples of the skills being presented. I encourage them to bring examples of the music they would like to play as well.
