About Timothy

Hello! My name is Tim, and I have my B.A. from Marshall University, where my main focus of study was music and education. I previously taught at an early learning center and worked with children ages 6 months to 12 years. Aside from my studies in music in college, I've also been a performing musician in elementary, middle, and high school. I have sang since I was in the third grade (and have formal training) and have been playing clarinet, flute and saxophone since I was in sixth grade. I also have a background in early childhood education and am able to tutor in pre-k through 6th material. In my free time, I love spending time with my husband, our two dogs and two cats, and going antiquing. Hello!

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.

American History

I'm an avid history lover, and aside from the history courses required in high school (American History I, American History II, World History, Government), I have taken two history courses on American History (America through 1860's, American after 1860's). Since I am an avid history lover, I also do a lot of my own studying and spend countless hours reading biographies, books, articles, etc. about American History.

Clarinet

After learning clarinet in sixth grade, I continued to play the remainder of my high school career. During high school, I was first chair at my school, first chair in the all-county band, as well as first chair in All-District band. After high school, I majored in Music Education and took private clarinet lessons from an applied instructor for three years (six semesters) and performed several juries.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently in my degree program working towards my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood education. I started out as a freshman majoring in Pre-k through 6th, then switched to music education (Pre-k through 12) and have since came back to early childhood. I'm currently working at an early learning center and spend much of my time with school age children. I answer questions on a daily basis about what they learned, etc. and feel confident that my courses, phonics instruction, etc. background that I can tutor any subject k-6.

ESL/ESOL

Aside from taking four years of high school Spanish and English, I took Spanish courses in college and even took a trip to Madrid, Spain. I have experience talking to people that speak English as a second language, and have quite a solid sense of English grammar, vocabulary and reading.

Flute

I learned to play flute in high school (self taught) along with guidance from several flute players. During my time as a music major, I also took Woodwind techniques which taught us how to effectively teach playing a woodwind instrument and flute was my first instrument of choice. Aside from playing the flute in my spare time, and at weddings, I also play the fife which is a very similar instrument, and has kept me affluent in my abilities.

General Music

Aside from my studies of music all through elementary and high school, I majored in Music Education for three years. I have take music theory, sight singing, applied techniques for several instruments and have all of the knowledge that a general music class requires. I know all of the instrument families, as well as each individual instrument. I can read music fluently and can play several instruments at an intermediate level.

Sight Singing

I took sight singing courses in college during my time as a music major, and was quite successful. I am very comfortable with solfege and am able to dictate and sing passages simply by hearing. I also still have my literature from my sight singing courses to aid me in my abilities.

Voice (Music)

I have been singing since I was in the third grade, which is where I sang my first solo in a play. Since then, I have had solos in several plays. After elementary, I sang four years in my high school choir. During high school, I was also a member of our (auditioned) all-county choir. After high school, I was in the University Chorus at my college during my time as a music education major. I also have taken courses that teach you proper techniques to effectively teach proper vocal lessons and singing techniques.
