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.

Guitar

I currently teach with a music company. We teach beginning piano and guitar to young people. We use the Alfred music series books. I do this 10 to 15 hours each week. I have taught beginning guitar to students in the last year. With the right books anyone can learn very quickly.

Piano

I am currently offering a fun, creative, open learning piano style designed for someone who wants to create their own original music.

I have lots of sheet music and recordings that we can study and learn from, such as Ellington, Chopin, kid songs, boogie woogie and more. Best at one hour sessions as we read lyrics and look over sheet music to start the session. Plus I bring a Yamaha keyboard with a built in recorder that allows us to create simple patterns that we can play along to.

Public Speaking

I studied theater in college, give live performances, and have been a MC (master of ceremonies) at festivals. I was a teaching artist for the Kennedy Center and the Choral Arts Society, where I gave presentations to school students.

Video Production

I currently use and teach Corel video studio, Magix movie edit pro 17 and have used Sony vegas, movie maker and imovie on the mac. Editing can be fun if you have a story you want to tell.
