About Adrian

I am a recent graduate from the University of Redlands. I received a double degree in music (vocal performance) and environmental policy and management, with a minor in spatial studies.

Because I completed two degree programs I have taken a wide variety of college courses, from music theory 4 to calculus to ecology. As a student, I was employed by the university as a tutor for music theory, ear training, spatial studies, and math. I have also tutored students to prepare them for the SAT and the GRE.

I love tutoring because it allows me to work directly with a student and help them succeed. My tutoring style is unique because I take advantage of a wide range of resources so that each student receives a diverse education. I am constantly testing out new tutoring methods, so I can find the technique that works best for each of my students. This ensures that each student has a positive and worthwhile learning experience.

For the longest time, math was a struggle for me too. In high school, I felt as though math teachers rushed through the material without fully explaining the concepts. This made the entire learning experience frustrating, especially since I really did want to understand. That all changed when I took calculus in college. My teacher explained the logic behind the math equations, and finally everything clicked! I received a 4.0 in the class, and have loved math ever since. I did extremely well in the math section of the GRE, and have tutored all math classes up to calculus.

I think that my previous struggles with math make me a great tutor in this subject, because I truly understand how difficult it can be. With my in-depth knowledge, I am able to explain confusing concepts in a way that is logical and straightforward.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my profile and for considering me for your tutoring needs!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ear Training

I completed a BA in Music, which included 4 semesters of intense ear training classes. Upon completion of the classes, the professor chose me to work as an ear training tutor because of my success in her class. I have experience teaching all aspects of ear training including rhythmic dictation, melodic dictation, sight singing exams, harmonic listening, and atonal melodies.

General Music

I completed a BA in music at the University of Redlands, whose program comprised of a wide variety of musical education. I have taken classes on music theory, ear training, piano, voice, music history, sound recording, pedagogy, and conducting. "General Music" is a very broad term, but I am confident that my degree has prepared me to teach any musical skill.

GIS

I completed a spatial studies minor at the University of Redlands, which focused on GIS Analysis and Projects. I also implemented GIS analysis into my research project, and worked as a GIS intern at the Redlands Center for Spatial Studies. We worked directly with ESRI, so I am able to offer help for any ESRI program.
