Culinary Arts and Saxophone Tutoring!
Culinary Arts and Saxophone Tutoring!
It's nice to meet you! My name is Chainey. I am 19 years old and have just finished my first year of college at UNC Asheville, but I am transferring this year to Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC. I have lived in Mount Airy for most of my life! I only say most because I was born in the Philippines. My mother is Filipino and my father is American, and both of them are extremely supportive of my aspirations and hobbies.
If you are reading this, you can probably tell that I love cooking and music. It's kind of an odd combination, but I'm very passionate about both, and I think you can see it when you meet me! I've been playing the saxophone since I was in seventh grade, so it's been about seven years now!
I started with the Alto Saxophone, but during high school, I was able to have the opportunity to play the Baritone Saxophone, so I am experienced with both. During this time, I have been ranked second through fifth in the county for the Alto Sax and also second for Baritone Saxophone. I was also woodwind captain for my high school band at North Surry, as well as a mentor to my fellow classmates during instrument transitions. I am not a master, but I am confident in my skill, and I am excited and passionate! I would also like to think I'm super fun, but that's for you to decide!
Last year, I was actually a music tutor for a student at Mount Airy middle school that was graduating and transitioning into high school. It was such a fun experience tutoring him, I gotta say! I could tell he was really enjoying it, getting excited about music and interested in challenging himself, and that is what I will try my best to instill in the student! I taught him from the very beginning, so I am confident in teaching you or the student at any skill level. If reading music is also an issue, I can help with this, as well! I have a few funny ways of teaching the basics because sometimes, it can be a little boring, but it is the foundation to successful music endeavors!
Cooking is a beautiful thing, and I think it is an extremely important skill for people to learn, especially before college. I have a pretty large amount of food knowledge because both my mom, who is a waitress, and my father, who is a truck driver, have been working long shifts since I was in middle school. It was always up to me to have a meal done because my parents just weren't able to be home and my family never bought many prepared foods. Because of this, I started cooking from a young age, and I am turning it into a career for the future. My knowledge ranges from knife techniques to cooking techniques and food sanitation.
I have experience teaching others cooking as well! In high school, I interned with my Foods teacher; I was able to provide demonstrations to multiple classes, as well as plan recipes that the kids were able to try out. I was also a member of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America where I won the state competition for nutrition with my gluten-free crepes. Along with this, I was able to give additional cooking demonstrations because my graduation project was about Culinary Arts. It was a great experience. However, the most important thing I posses, I believe, is passion! I'm excited about teaching these skills, life-long skills that not only benefit the student, but also the parents! I know that my family loves that I am able to help in the house cooking, and it's a great feeling to see people enjoying your food.
I hope you give me the opportunity to not only be a tutor to you or the student, but also a mentor and friend.
Thank you so much for considering me for the job! I look forward to meeting you!
