About Allan

Hi. My name is Allan. I'm a gentle, friendly, patient and encouraging teaching professional who has many years of experience as a teacher & tutor. My most proficient areas lie in the Arts and in general elementary academic studies, with specialties in English grammar, vocabulary, writing and reading comprehension.

In the arts, I have a lifetime of experience to offer in music and art. I have written, recorded, performed, produced and independently released 3 full length albums, playing all instruments (voice, guitar, bass, drums, percussion). I have also created all artwork for these records, from concept through production. Finally, I have 20 years experience working on a Mac platform performing all phases of graphic design.

I can offer tutoring in general English language skills including grammar, reading, writing and vocabulary, beginner-intermediate Mac computer skills, beginner-intermediate guitar, recording and engineering and songwriting.

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.

Desktop Publishing

I have 21 years experience working on the Mac platform. Beginning in 1990 on a Mac IIci, I learned basic Mac functions at one of my first graphic design jobs. I have also taken classes on Quark, Illustrator and Photoshop and have received certification upon their completion. Every few years since then, I have bought and upgraded my own personal Mac computers and software and have continued to do graphic design for large corporations and as a freelance artist. I also tutor those who are just beginning their Mac experience and share information with colleagues on the latest software and upgrades.

Finally, I have become the "go-to" person amongst family and friends for technical questions, advice and troubleshooting regarding Macs.

My teaching methods are kind, gentle, compassionate and friendly which has been proven to create a supportive, productive and effective learning environment.

General Music

I have a lifetime of experience in music. Playing guitar and singing at the age of 7, I have led and played in many bands, performing my own music as well as other people's. My specialty is rock (all types) and soul/R&B. I play mostly by ear and can pick up songs and transfer them to guitar and bass very easily. I can arrange vocal harmonies effortlessly. I have also written, performed, engineered, produced and independently released 3 of my own full length albums. Finally, I have endless knowledge of popular music history.

Most recently, I have aided and tutored a group of creative individuals with developmental differences in all areas of music, helping them write songs, perform them and eventually release their first full-length album in 2009.
