About Roger

I am a graduate of Lexington, MA HS, Bowdoin College and Cornell Univ graduate school, where I studied, sang and played sports. Baseball, basketball, captain of the tennis team, choral soloist, glee club.

I spent 5 years in the US Peace Corps in Colombia and traveling all over Latin America, so I speak perfect Spanish and am very at home in most Latin cultural situations.I teach Spanish regularly today.

Then I spent 27 years in Sweden, speak native Swedish and am still active as a cultural ambassador between the US and Sweden. I sang professionally for 20 years.

Back in the US I have concentrated on performing, composing, teaching and creative writing, and primarily on raising two wonderful kids, now 14 and 12 years old. We laugh and sing and play a lot.

I have taught Spanish, English, Swedish and music from K thru 12, led several choirs, coached baseball, basketball and tennis and I HAVE LOADS OF FUN DOING IT!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Baseball

I played baseball all through school on varsity teams, winning awards as a pitcher.
I presently coach Little League teams in Portland, Maine, and I have a thorough understanding of the game.

Basketball

I played basketball all through school, and was team co-captain and league All-Star in HS. I worked as a counselor at a Boston Celtic summer camp in the 70's.

I coach my son's Winter League basketball teams.

General Music

I have taught music from grades k thru 12 in various Maine schools.
I have led children's choirs, from toddlers to high schoolers to adult groups, in Maine and in Sweden.
I have worked as a performer, arranger and producer of musical recordings for many years.

Sight Singing

Many years of choral and solo vocal work have given me a most thorough command of sight singing.
I have written, transcribed and arranged dozens of songs for myself and others to sight read.
I have also taught voice, and sight singing is an important part of my lessons.

Spanish

Roger H - Spanish background

"I was a substitute Spanish teacher for many Portland and Westbrook Schools, for grades k-12, from 2000–2008.

In Portland I taught after school Spanish for grades 1–5 at Hall School from 2006 to 2014, and at Breakwater School in 2013. I have also home-schooled several Portland and Cape Elizabeth groups from 2008 to 2012.

I have been fluent in Spanish since 1968, living and teaching for 4 years in Medellin, Colombia. And I have traveled extensively in Central and South America, in the Caribbean and in Spain."

Tennis

I was number one player and captain of both my High School and college teams. I was once a ranked player in Eastern Massachusetts. I have been a linesman for the professional championships at Longwood Cricket Club in Brookline, MA. I have taught tennis professionally for several summers at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA., and have been a tennis counselor at summer camps.

Voice (Music)

I have led a number of youth choirs, where much of my work was getting the youngsters to use their voices properly when singing, be it in the choir or as a soloist.
I have also taught voice to students privately, on a one-to-one basis, often using my own CD's to illustrate what we are trying to do.
