Xavier University/Cincinnati Ohio (Music Education)

First of all, I have been teaching since 1993 in the state of Ohio. I am certified as a music teacher, but also teach art, special ed, reading, general math, etc. At the present time I am teaching at the St. Bernard, Deer Park, and Summit Academy school districts. I also have had the opportunity of doing administrative work as a back up principal at the Summit Academy school. I also have a degree from Xavier University in Music Education.
I want to also note that I also have international experience as a concert soloist in places such as Germany, Russia, Rome, etc. This all took place from 1991 through 1994. I am also an artist and author. I wrote a total of five books during the duration of my teaching experience.
Within the last two school years I have helped to raise test scores in every school that I taught in. I am on the waiting list for the Wyoming school district in my hometown.
When it comes to tutoring, being an author is one of my strong points. I am very patient with the progress of students. I also believe that educators have to make learning as fun as possible. I also tell students to try to write as many short stories to improve their English skills.

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.
I have quite a few drawings in my collection. I started my drawings many years ago. My first ever art show took place back on May 9th, 2014 on mother's day weekend. My work consists of landscapes, animated, pencil drawings, famous tourist locations, original art, etc. I specialize in teaching students how to draw all types of art. The primary area I will teach the students is pencil drawing and original art.
When I was a student at Xavier University I took a class on sight singing dictation to enhance my ear training. This class really helped me to become a great section leader in different churches when I was hired for the bass section leader position. I performed very well on these exams in college with ear training.
I am a professional singer. I have performed with Cincinnati Opera, Dayton Opera, Sorg Opera, Xavier Opera workshop, Bass solo Jobs in several churches, etc. Sight reading is something I specialize in. I also sung over seas back in 1992 in Russia as a major soloist, as also Germany and Rome in the 1990'2. I use general music as a backup in my teaching.
I am a professional singer. I have trained many singers in the Cincinnati area in many different styles. I teach country, gospel, Jazz, classical, rock, etc. My area of concentration as a voice teacher is to help them with their pitch, breathing, and diction.
