About John

I have taught for 5 years in public middle school.
I specialize in music, mainly vocal music. But I also do general music, and music theory.
I have also taught in a study skills class for 3 years working with students who need extra help in many other academic courses.
I work best with students in the elementary to middle school levels.
Other than music, I focus mostly on math, science and language arts
I pride myself of being able to connect with students and teaching them effective ways to learn and remember techniques in academic subjects.

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.

Drums

My experience with percussion comes from 8 years of playing in public school band programs, 3 years of playing in a country western band, 3 years of playing in a concert band at Oregon State University, plus earning a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in music education. My focus in college was vocal and choral music, but I still carried on my love of percussion all through college. After I graduated, I did a year of student teaching with a high school and middle school band where I was able to work directly with students learning percussion. I have had 5 years experience teaching music in public schools

Ear Training

I earned bachelor's and master's degrees in music education from Oregon State University. OSU provides rigorous aural skills training in their music programs. I took 1 year of basic aural skills/ear training and 1 year of advanced ear training. I have also taught music in the public schools for 5 years and given private voice lessons for over a year.

General Music

I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in music education from Oregon State University and have 5 years of experience teaching music in public schools. I also teach private voice lessons and privately teach music theory.

Study Skills

I taught study skills in the public schools for 3 years. I was able to take many of the most academically challenged students and teach them the skills necessary to help them focus, stay more organized, and find ways to succeed on tests. I also currently tutor several students privately in this area. I have been very successful with teaching students the skills necessary to be successful in school and life.
