Bio

I'm a long-time self-taught guitarist and singer, and love helping students get past hurdles that are holding them back and help them avoid developing bad habits in their playing. I like to focus on teaching students how to get the music they imagine into their fingers and out of their instrument. I personally enjoy bluegrass, folk, blues and progressive rock.

I have a long experience of tutoring math and science one-on-one and in small groups as a part-time adjunct faculty member at Wake Tech North and WTCC West. I have broad exposure and training in adapting to individual learning styles and enjoy explaining concepts so that students understand them.

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

I was lucky to have an enthusiastic teacher in my high school Choir class. She passed on what I realized later was an incredible amount of content for a HS class. I have been intrigued with compositional concepts like inversion, retrograde, structure - like fugues, etc, chordal inversions and variations, substitutions.I love learning (and teaching) chordal structure, song structure, musical notation, as well as MIDI/DAW compositional tools/apps.

Pre-calculus Help

Scott tutored my 11th grade daughter and helped her gain a better understanding of some pre-calculus concepts. He presented her with some tips to remember formulas and was very patient. His instruction was clear and helpful.

Janice, 2 lessons with Scott

Great tutor for a multiple levels of Math

We worked with Scott over the course of a few years to assist my son through challenges in high school math. Whether we were dealing with Algebra 2 or Geometry, Scott was able to work with my son to help him to better understand the concepts and perform better in class. He was always very amenable to work with us on our schedule and it was clear that he wanted to see my son succeed. I would highly recommend Scott and his work to other families looking for help.

Megan, 18 lessons with Scott

Excellent Tutor

I would highly recommend Scott. He assisted me with Excel & PowerPoint instruction/ assistance. I found him to be well-informed, patient, & able to meet the needs I presented to him when building charts/graphs/PowerPoint presentations I needed for my job. Scott was flexible in scheduling our time & was willing to work around my work schedule. He was punctual and professional.

Mary, 6 lessons with Scott

Great tutor!

Scott has tutored both of my daughters and was a great help to both of them. He is dependable and is able to make difficult concepts more understandable. I definitely recommend!

Renee, 3 lessons with Scott

Progress in Course

My son is still having a lot of difficulty and barely passed last test. He feels that Scott is very beneficial in his struggle to pass this course. Will be grateful for all Scott can do in helping him with concepts and retention. We are very pleased with Scott's work with Dallas.

Marshall, 13 lessons with Scott

Excellant Tutor

My first meeting with Scott went well and he definitely knows statistics. With his help over the next week I'm positive that I will pass my mid term.

Vauda, 3 lessons with Scott

Excellent support at the end of the semester!!!

Very appreciative of Scott jumping in with my sophomore and getting him through the final in precalculus. It was the first time my son has struggled to grasp how to be successful and Scott slowed him down and made him walk through the solutions. He was patient and kind. More importantly my son liked and respected him. I would offer an unqualified reference for Scott. THANKS!!!!!

Gregory, 6 lessons with Scott
Tutor responded:

Thank you for the kind words. Your son is great to work with and I look forward to seeing him fulfill his potential in precalculus.

Very Smart, Helpful, and Patient

I am taking a class this semester that is a combination of Math and Excel for the most part. Scott was able to show me how to break down the word problems, enter the information into Excel, and let Excel do the work for me once I understoon how to apply the information! Scott is readily available and super dependable.
